Former striker Stan Collymore has called on Liverpool to add Barcelona forward Ansu Fati and AZ Alkmaar youngster Myron Boadu to their ranks this summer.
The ex-England striker made the claim on Twitter after Liverpool slipped to a 1-0 defeat to Fulham – their sixth in succession at Anfield.
Collymore named some obvious choices for Liverpool’s recruitment team to consider. Erling Haaland and Jack Grealish were two other names mentioned – although they seem far less likely.
LFC front 3 have won the lot and may fancy Madrid, Bayern or Juve for a new challenge
So don't discount an overhaul being at least being whispered at LFC.
Haaland, Grealish, Fati ( Barca completely skint) Boadu ( couple of Dutch coaches i know love this kid) all on a list.

The two interesting names were those of Fati and Boadu, however, with both players tipped for big things.
Barcelona ace Fati has been restricted to 10 appearances this season, scoring five goals and registering four assists.
The 18-year-old earns £45,000-a-week at the Nou Camp and will be fancied by plenty of teams.
It does seem unlikely that Barca will want to sell, although their financial predicament could force their hand.
Boadu is another player with a big future and signing him could be far more realistic.
The 20-year-old is a natural centre-forward and has found the net 11 times for AZ this season, including a recent hat-trick against Feyenoord.
Boadu seems destined to play for a top European outfit at some point and scored during his only appearance for the Holland national team.
TBR View: Liverpool must get summer recruitment spot on
Plenty of supporters have been critical of the club’s hierarchy for not backing boss Jurgen Klopp during the January window.
Liverpool failed to land any big-name recruits with Ben Davies arriving from Preston and Ozan Kabak from Schalke.
As a result, the Reds have failed to revive their flailing season and are on course to complete one of the worst title defences in Premier League history.
The summer is going to be a crucial period and if Liverpool are to bounce back in style they must get their recruitment spot on.
Fati and Boadu would certainly be a step in the right direction.
