Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is set for a rebuild this summer following a poor season domestically. Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly is linked with a summer move to Anfield. Express Sport predicts how the Reds could line up with Koulibaly, as well as two other new signings.

Goalkeeper – Alisson

Alisson has had a poor season by his standards but there is no way Liverpool will look to replace the Brazilian.

The Reds will need Alisson back to his best if they are going to challenge for the Premier League title again.

Klopp may be in the market for a backup goalkeeper, with Adrian’s contract expiring this summer.

However, Caoimhin Kelleher has performed admirably when called upon this season.

Defence – Alexander-Arnold, Koulibaly, Van Dijk, Robertson

Klopp could make a couple of new signings in defence, though only one makes this XI.

Reports say Liverpool have made an ‘informal offer’ of around £34million for Napoli star Koulibaly.

The 29-year-old would form a formidable partnership with the returning Virgil van Dijk.

Andy Robertson will keep his place at left-back and Trent Alexander-Arnold on the opposite side.

However, Torino ace Wilfried Singo could be brought in to provide competition for Alexander-Arnold.

Reports say Liverpool have had a £17m bid rejected for Singo, who can also play as a winger.

Midfield – Henderson, Fabinho, Zielinski

The midfield area sees a third summer signing in the form of Piotr Zielinski.

Zielinski has played in the same Napoli team as Koulibaly for the past five years.

The Poland international, who is said to be a target for Klopp, can provide creativity from midfield having contributed six goals and six assists in Serie A so far this season.

If Liverpool remain injury-free at the back, Jordan Henderson and Fabinho are likely to take up their usual midfield roles, allowing Zielinski to venture forward.

Attack – Salah, Jota, Mane

Diogo Jota’s form in his debut campaign at Liverpool warrants a starting spot next season.

Roberto Firmino has not cut the mustard this term and may no longer be considered first choice at Anfield.

Mohamed Salah is still the joint-top goalscorer in the Premier League this season despite a perceived poor campaign for the Egypt international.

And Sadio Mane has too much credit in the bank to be written off by the Liverpool fans or coaching staff.
