According to The Independent, Liverpool have five key targets heading into the summer transfer window, with Jurgen Klopp preparing to boost his squad.

The Reds can qualify for the Champions League with a win over Middlesbrough on Sunday afternoon, and Klopp is seemingly preparing moves to deal with challenging Europe's elite.

It's claimed that Klopp wants to bring two left backs – Fulham's Ryan Sessegnon and Hull's Andrew Robertson – to Anfield, as well as Southampton's Virgil van Dijk and RB Leipzig duo Naby Keita and Timo Werner.

All five would be major additions for Liverpool not only for now, but also for the future as Klopp looks to turn the Reds into title challengers for years to come.

Should Liverpool land all five targets, questions will be asked about where they fit into Klopp's side, and the German would certainly have a number of options available to him, though remaining with his 4-3-3 seems the most likely.

Loris Karius and Simon Mignolet would continue to battle it out to be Liverpool's first-choice goalkeeper, whilst Nathaniel Clyne will almost certainly remain at right back barring injury.

Joel Matip seems likelier to keep his place than Dejan Lovren, enabling van Dijk to step in at centre back, leaving Robertson to feature at left back whilst 17-year-old Sessegnon learns.

Jordan Henderson or Emre Can could feature in front of the back four, with the relentless box-to-box play of Keita could be a great compliment for the creativity of Adam Lallana, with Georginio Wijnaldum facing increased competition despite a strong season.

Adding Werner would be interesting, as it's hard to see anybody breaking up the dangerous trident of Philippe Coutinho, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane, though Werner's ability to play anywhere in the front three would be vital.

With 21 goals in 31 games for Leipzig this season, Werner – who is just 21 – could bring some additional firepower to the Liverpool side given that Daniel Sturridge looks set to leave this summer.

Ultimately, the focus for Liverpool has to be on greater squad depth. A title push this season fell by the wayside when absences occurred, with Klopp in desperate need of a strong all-round squad to support his main players.

These five targets would give Klopp greater flexibility, both in terms of the tactics he can play and with the personnel changes he can make, though whether he could tempt the likes of Werner to Anfield without the promise of a key role remains to be seen.
