Jurgen Klopp will attempt to revamp his Liverpool team this summer at a cost of £150 million, according to reports.
Klopp has seen his team fall out of the English Premier League title race since Christmas, and now faces a fight to qualify for next season’s UEFA Champions League.
According to The Sun, the German will attempt to avoid a repeat next season by sanctioning the purchases of Inaki Williams, valued at £43 million by his club Athletic Bilbao, and AS Monaco’s £40 million-rated Tiemoue Bakayoko.
Klopp could also look to stiffen up in defense, with Southampton center-back Virgil Van Dijk potentially available for £50 million alongside Arsenal midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, which would take Liverpool’s spending over the £150 million mark.
