Liverpool have an interesting summer ahead of them, which has left supporters wondering the area of priority as the links to players are adding up as the days go by.

According to The Athletic, the Reds will be looking for reinforcements in the midfield department, with the club happy with their defensive options.

The three main midfield targets have been identified as Jude Bellingham, Mason Mount and Matheus Nunes.

The Reds have shown their long-term admiration for Croatian starlet Josko Gvardiol, but their priorities in terms of incomings has shifted up the field.

Given how much their three main targets will put them back, a big money move for Gvardiol does not seem feasible, especially with interest growing from other European giants.

An inconsistent season in midfield has forced Klopp and his entourage to scour the market for potential upgrades come the end of term.

Jude Bellingham has been their number 1 target for some time now and would make an emphatic statement to the rest of the teams in England’s top division.

We also understand that they are exploring the possibility of move for Mount, who will bring a tenacious work rate and heaps of Premier League experience.

Wolves’ midfielder Nunes has also impressed in his short stint in the Premier League and would be a clever bit of business – but may be the last on the priority list, understandably.

If Klopp was able to get his hands of two out of his top three transfer targets, it will be a successful summer.

The possible outgoings will leave a tremendous void in the engine room, with Naby Keita, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and James Milner all likely to depart Merseyside.
