Jurgen Klopp has seen his side slip from the loftiest of perches in 2022-23, with the Merseyside giants set to end the current campaign empty-handed after previously taking in Champions League, Premier League, UEFA Super Cup, FIFA Club World Cup, FA Cup and Carabao Cup successes. Movement on Merseyside is expected over the coming months – in both arrival and departure lounges – with a deal for World Cup-winning Argentina international Alexis Mac Allister seemingly in the pipework with Brighton.

Reinforcements in the engine room will be a top priority, with Hamann speculating on who Liverpool could target – including a somewhat shock choice currently on the books at Newcastle – while also discussing potential budgets for Klopp and how costly failure to qualify for the Champions League could be.
