The Jurgen Klopp revolution has hit the skids.

Liverpool at the start of this season were beginning to show green shoots of growth as they kept pace with the top of the Premier League, but a winless run at the beginning of the year running into March has left question marks surrounding the German’s plans.

Anfield has seen plenty of goals so far, but it is a porous defence that has hamstrung any attempts by Klopp to solidify a clearly weak underbelly. The Reds have shipped goals at an alarming rate, and their backline and goalkeeper have looked anything but top-four quality.

Liverpool have raised their game for matches against their rivals for the Champions League spots, but it is the games against teams in mid-table and near the bottom that they have dropped points. Does this mean the problem is a mental one for Klopp and his men?

Whether the problem is deeper rooted than a lack of quality in defence and in goal, Jurgen Klopp needs reinforcements this summer. If he wants to elevate his team, then his current squad needs a fillip, and new signings are what is required.

Klopp will have identified his targets but here are 20 players that could really help the Reds next season.
