A sensational late comeback saw Liverpool defy the odds and finish third in the Premier League standings. The Reds have retained their Champions League status and are already pursuing new names to bolster the squad. The crisis at the back has been addressed by roping in Ibrahima Konaté from RB Leipzig and according to Todofichajes, Liverpool might secure the services of hitman Patson Daka in the coming days.

Enthusiasts of soccer betting should try their luck in the matched betting sites for 2021 as the Merseysiders are willing to listen to offers for Divock Origi who failed to stake a claim in Jurgen Klopp’s plans despite his Champions League and derby heroics. Moreover, Roberto Firmino has not been scoring enough of late and the Reds, therefore, should step up the chase for the Red Bull Salzburg ‘number 9’ who succeeded Erling Haaland at Wals-Siezenheim with plenty of goals and assists over the past couple of campaigns.

The 22-year-old Zambian enjoyed an exquisite season while spearheading the Roten Bullen attack. He fired in 34 times and laid on 12 more in 42 appearances across competitions. The youngster has clocked a league goal in every 72 minutes [stats via Transfermarket] and his brace against the English hotshots in a pre-season friendly (Klopp is pretty serious about these fixtures) depicted the ability to shine at the highest level.

If a report from the Express is believed to be true, Liverpool target Patson Daka is available for around £17m. The club are expected to generate a similar figure by offloading Origi and their amicable relationship with the Red Bull franchise should be brought into play once more to strike a deal ahead of the other suitors.

While the Reds are set to offer improved contract terms to an array of high-profile names, the mistake made in the recent past must not be repeated. They should have attempted prolific signings after winning silverware, thus, close the gap with Manchester City in terms of depth as well as quality in the long run. An aggressive window, as well as a bit of luck with injuries, would help them reclaim the coveted crown next year.
