LIVERPOOL could boast a stunning attack next year with Kylian Mbappe and Jeremy Doku.
And Jude Bellingham could pull the strings in midfield.
Jurgen Klopp is keen on a refresh, adding some new faces to add to his talented but aging squad.
The highlight signing could be Mbappe.
The French striker is unhappy at Paris Saint-Germain and even feels so ‘betrayed’ by the club that he is considering ‘terminating his contract’ just months after the deal was signed.
And as he nears the Parc des Princes’ exit door, there is mounting evidence that his next move could be Liverpool.
The Reds are reportedly ready to raise a staggering £175million for the world champions – and in doing so, rival Real Madrid for his signature.
Mbappe would certainly lead the attack – possibly alongside or instead of Darwin Nunez – with Mo Salah shining on the right wing.
Then Doku could provide the spark on the other flank.
Klopp is said to be a big fan of the Rennes winger – especially following the loss of Sadio Mane and the injury of Luis Diaz.
But Chelsea and Arsenal are also chasing the 20-year-old Belgian.
In midfield, the Anfield team needs more recruits.
Fabinho is the undisputed first choice in role #6.
Thiago, Jordan Henderson and James Milner are all on the wrong side of 30, while injuries are plaguing Naby Keita, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and now-loan Arthur Melo.
Curtis Jones and Harvey Elliott are exciting youngsters but the addition of Bellingham would be a huge coup.

The Borussia Dortmund teenager, who captained his club this season, already has international experience with the senior team and is expected to start for England in Qatar.
He could join Fabinho in a second midfielder – similar to Declan Rice for the Three Lions – or in a slightly more advanced No 8 role with Thiago or Elliott.
However, Liverpool are in midfield behind Manchester City, Chelsea and Real Madrid in the race for the talented technician.
Defensively, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andy Robertson are the preferred pairing as full-backs for Liverpool.
Virgil van Dijk is usually joined by Joel Matip or Ibrahima Konate at centre-back – although Galatasaray defender Victor Nelsson has been linked.
Alisson is the clear No. 1 in goal and will not lose his place between the posts anytime soon.
