Liverpool are reportedly eyeing the transfers of five or six players, including top Arsenal target Alexandre Lacazette, if they miss out on a top four spot this season.
The Reds are aware that they’ll need to vastly improve on this current squad if they fail to qualify for the Champions League, with Jurgen Klopp’s men looking tired in recent weeks.
Liverpool have just two wins in twelve since the turn of the year and are already making plans for the summer as they reportedly look at Lyon striker Lacazette and Red Bull Leipzig midfielder Naby Keita.
Arsenal have also been strongly linked with the £60million-rated Lacazette as a possible replacement for Alexis Sanchez, but the Daily Mirror claim Liverpool could rival them for his signature.
A top class centre-forward looks an absolute must for the Merseyside giants after Daniel Sturridge’s loss of form in recent times, with Klopp favouring a front three of Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane and Philippe Coutinho, none of whom are out-and-out strikers.
Lacazette, meanwhile, has an impressive record of 27 goals in 31 games in all competitions this season.
