It's crazy to think Peter Schmeichel signed for Manchester United, won the Premier League five times, retired, had a son, who won the title with Leicester City, the last time Liverpool won the league title 28 years ago.

The Reds, under Brendan Rodgers, came close in 2013-14 only to lose out to Manchester City by two points. However, its looking even more likely under the tenure of Klopp that they will eventually go on to claim the league title at some stage - which could be next season.

Mohamed Salah claimed the Golden Boot this season with a staggering 32 goals all campaign, whilst setting a new goal scoring record and eclipsing the likes of Alan Shearer, Cristiano Ronaldo and Luis Suarez.

Naby Keita will join liverpool for £52.75 million in the summer from RB Leipzig, and once the Champions League final is over, Jurgen Klopp and sporting director Michael Edwards will discuss potential recruits ahead of next season.

But who could the Reds bring in? Here are five players Liverpool should be looking at.

#5 Ryan Sessegnon (Fulham)

The 17-year-old, who won PFA Young Player of the Year this year, continues to be linked with a move away from Craven Cottage as Manchester United and Tottenham continue to be touted with moves for the young teenager.

Even though Robertson, 23, seems to have nailed down a starting position in Klopp's XI, but the Reds are still keen on Sessgnon's services as they look for competition for the impressive Scot and a replacement for Alberto Moreno, who is expected to leave Anfield this summer.

Sessegnon, who can play as a left-winger as well as in the full-back position, scored to send Fulham to the play-off final, after sealing a 2-1 second-leg victory over Derby. He should be a no brainer for Klopp and Edwards.
