Liverpool are already plotting their summer transfer business after a quiet January.

The Reds brought in Takumi Minamino for a £7.25million fee and Brentford's Joe Hardy during the winter window, but are expected to push for marquee additions this summer.

Jurgen Klopp is reportedly keen on Timo Werner, while Liverpool are said to have joined the race for Jadon Sancho. However, they will likely face a battle with both Manchester United and Chelsea - plus a number of European clubs - for the England international.

Meanwhile, Adam Lallana is set to leave Liverpool at the end of the season with no discussions over a new contract having taken place.

The winger's former club Manchester City are also expected to make a move for the 19-year-old, while Manchester United, Chelsea, Real Madrid and Barcelona are among a host of interested clubs across Europe.

However, Liverpool are optimistic they have the edge in negotiations. They have just signed a huge kit deal with Sancho's sponsors Nike, and more crucially Klopp has strong connections at Dortmund, where he managed for seven years.

The Bundesliga club are expected to demand around £100million for Sancho.
