Life after Jurgen Klopp has begun at Liverpool, as Arne Slot looks to take the club up a level and challenge for major honours once again next season. The Dutchman, who led Feyenoord to the Eredivisie title and the KNVB Cup during his time at the club, clearly knows how to win things. It’s a different test altogether in a more competitive competition in the Premier League, though and EPL results will need to follow.

Additional Quality Is Needed

Liverpool fans would have been concerned to see their beloved Reds fall away from the title race in the manner they did. Many fans selected the likes of Mohamed Salah for their fantasy football squads and backed the side for the title with a bet on football, but the Reds fell short, although odds of 7/1 on them winning it next season will surely tempt some. After all, it’s a squad that isn’t too far away from the competition.

Should the aforementioned Salah depart the club in the coming months, though, then the picture could suddenly change. For Liverpool, they’d face the prospect of having to replace their star man, while the aforementioned fans who indulge in Premiership betting and tend to opt for Liverpool players in their fantasy teams would surely look at other sides. Salah’s potential departure would be a blow to the club, with the Egyptian scoring 18 goals and registering 10 assists last season.

Whether Liverpool’s talisman stays at Anfield remains to be seen, but his current club are already being linked with a number of exciting players as Arne Slot looks to make his mark.

Jarrod Bowen in for Mohamed Salah?

If Mohamed Salah does leave Liverpool for pastures new, then West Ham’s Jarrod Bowen could be the perfect replacement. The Hammers’ key man has been continually linked with an exit from the club, with the Reds rumoured to be interested in a player Jurgen Klopp rates highly. Bowen would command a big fee, but if Liverpool are looking to give their new manager the tools needed to succeed, then the former Hereford United star should be considered.

Teun Koopmeiners Hasn’t Ruled Out Liverpool Move

After winning the Europa League with Atalanta, Teun Koopmeiners has faced numerous questions regarding his future at the club. The Dutchman is a key cog in the Italian side’s wheel but he could be on the move in the near future. Arne Slot is said to be a big fan of his fellow countryman, while Liverpool’s hierarchy will surely be tempted to make a move for a player with 15 goals and seven assists in 49 games this season. Should Liverpool test Atalanta’s resolve with a bid in the coming weeks, it seems as though the former AZ midfielder would struggle to turn it down.

Liverpool Linked With Olmo

Although Liverpool could do with a defender or two, the links to attacking players just won’t go away. The latest name being tipped for a move to England is RB Leipzig’s Dani Olmo, who reportedly has a £51m release clause. Operating on either flank, the winger is capable of lighting up the Premier League and he would surely jump at the chance to play for one of the most famous clubs in football.

Justin Bijlow Could Replace Caoimhin Kelleher

As he searches for more first-team football opportunities elsewhere, Caoimhin Kelleher is likely to leave the club in the summer window. Arne Slot will therefore be looking for a suitable replacement for the Irishman, with a familiar face potentially joining the ranks. Justin Bijlow is the player in question, after the Dutch goalkeeper kept nine clean sheets in 24 games under Slot last season.
