Liverpool seem to be on the verge of achieving something very special.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp will be desperate to bolster his ranks at Anfield this summer, as he looks to guide his side to their first league title in 29 years next season.

Two players in particular who seem to be on the Reds' radar are Ajax ace Matthijs de Ligt and Lille star Nicolas Pepe.

French publication L'Equipe claims that Liverpool are closing in on a £70 million deal to sign Pepe, whilst Spanish media outlet Sport suggests that De Ligt's agent Mino Raiola is trying to convince his £75 million-rated (Fox Sports) client to move to Anfield.


The Merseyside outfit already have a wonderfully strong group of players, but should they manage to add the two mentioned players, they might just be unbeatable.

Pepe, 24, is one of the most exciting wingers in the game, and he was in sensational form for Lille last term, racking up 23 goals and 12 assists in 41 appearances in all competitions.

19-year-old De Ligt, meanwhile, has firmly established himself as one of the best centre-backs in world football after enjoying a stellar campaign with Ajax.

Both players have plenty of years left ahead of them, and should Liverpool manage to sign he duo this summer, they will be in a fantastic position from which to dominate over the next few seasons, both domestically and on the continent.
