Ibrahima Konate has arrived. Thoughts?

Konate is a really exciting addition to the squad – and a much-needed one at that. He will have plenty to offer both in the short and long-term.

He’s got the pace required, is vocal and appears alert to danger – and there’s plenty of upside and room for improvement, so what’s not to like!

What other transfer business needs to be done this summer?

The next two cabs off the rank have to be in midfield and attack. Our squad depth is thin at best and losing Gini Wijnaldum means he has to be replaced. A Youri Tielemans or Yves Bissouma would be ideal.

With the front three moving closer to 30, they and Diogo Jota need another spark to assist with rotation and offer Liverpool greater threat from the bench.

Having more strings to our bow after a long season and when AFCON comes around in winter is non-negotiable in my mind.

Philippe Coutinho is being linked again. Interested?

That ship has certainly sailed. There’s no doubting his quality but with his injury record of late, we wouldn’t be getting back the same player that left Anfield three years ago.

Jurgen Klopp is one to look forward and Coutinho does not represent that. I do hope he finds form again but it won’t be at Liverpool as we’ve long moved on.

Trent Alexander-Arnold HAS been named in the England squad, after much debate. Right call?

Without a doubt. Trent is an unbelievable, mind-boggling talent and leaving him out would have been typical of England – just not knowing how to manage talent like Trent’s.

That Southgate ever even considered overlooking a player who offers the threat he does is beyond me.

There’s obviously a lot of competition in his position, but England shouldn’t still have the same safe mentality of old – instead, they need to utilise the exciting talent available and Trent fits that bill.

Chelsea overcame Man City to win the Champions League. Are they going to be a threat to Liverpool next season?

They most certainly could be. They have grown a lot under the tutelage of Thomas Tuchel and we know as well as anyone the confidence that winning silverware injects.

They’ll be in and around the discussion but I do feel that a Liverpool firing at their best will still be too much over the course of 38 games in the league.

It’ll be interesting to see how they approach this transfer window, however.

Any other business?

Last season was pretty much two campaigns in one and fans and players alike felt it, and next season holds a lot of promise. Not just in a Liverpool revival but a return to some normality and to get the back the game we all love.

It does feel as though a reset button can be hit and after the bright end to our season and the early signing of Konate, the summer could be a rejuvenating one ahead of a 2021/22 where trophies, hopefully, return.
