According to a report from the Mirror, Manchester United and Manchester City are all set to battle it out for the signature of Bayern Munich's Jérôme Boateng this summer, but surely Liverpool should join their north west rivals in the race for the centre-back.
The Germany international joined Bayern from City in the summer of 2011, for a fee believed to be worth in the region of £12.4 million, and he has since gone on to establish himself as one of the best central defenders in world football.
The Germany international could be sold this summer, according to a report from the Mirror, however, with both Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho keen on bringing him to Manchester.
Surely Liverpool boss Jürgen Klopp should attempt to hijack his rivals' interest in Boateng, though, if he has true ambition of guiding his side to their first top flight title since 1990.
Standing at 6ft 3in tall, the 29-year-old is incredibly strong in the air, and would surely form a formidable partnership with Virgil van Dijk at the heart of the Reds' back-line.
Boateng is also immensely strong, but do not be fooled, his game is not entirely based around pace and power.
The German is one of the best ball-playing centre-backs in the game, and with Klopp's preference for his team to play out from the back, he seems to be ideally suited to the setup at Anfield.
He is available for around £50 million this summer, according to the Manchester Evening News, and if Liverpool flex their muscles once again by bringing him to Merseyside, it could be a real statement of intent from Klopp's side heading into the new Premier League season.
