Liverpool have started the summer transfer window in brilliant fashion with the captures of Naby Keita and Fabinho, but there is still work for manager Jurgen Klopp to do.

The Reds need to be targeting a Premier League title bid next season and there is still work to be done to their squad if that is to become a reality.

They need to try tighten up their defence with a new goalkeeper an obvious necessity, but adding a new centre-forward also has to be high on their list of priorities.

The Merseyside club need to bring in someone to compete with Roberto Firmino for a starting XI position and they should place Juventus ace Mario Mandzukic on their radar.

Liverpool are crying out for a plan B in the final third when Firmino can’t unlock the door and unfortunately youngster Dominic Solanke is not yet up to the level required.

Mandzukic is a very experienced attacker that is a serial winner and Klopp should offer him a crack at the Premier League for the first time in his career.

The 6ft 2in (source: Transfermrkt) giant centre-forward is currently in the Juventus first team, but is hardly a regular starter and quite often has to make do with appearances off the bench.

He managed 10 goals in 43 appearances this season for the Italian giants and is proven at the top level.

The Croatia international could well be the final piece in Klopp’s jigsaw to help them get over the line for silverware and having two quality strikers would make a world of difference.

In the latest Liverpool transfer news, the Reds have switched their attention to a Barcelona player.
