Liverpool’s pre-season campaign has come to an end, and attention will now be ramping up on the 2021/22 campaign that lies ahead.
A whole host of players have already been tipped to join Anfield in the coming weeks, and they show no sign of stopping ahead of what is expected to be a busy window for the Reds.
Jurgen Klopp will be looking to build a squad that can challenge for the Premier League title, but what players will they actually sign?
Here, we take a lookout some of the latest rumours doing the rounds and how likely they are to happen.

According to the report, Liverpool are keen to allow Davies to depart on a permanent deal rather than on a loan basis.
Davies is yet to make a competitive appearance since signing for the Reds in January, but has featured on a couple of occasions during pre-season.
The report states that Davies is keen to move to Bramall Lane, with Michael Edwards thought to be in favour of letting Davies leave permanently.
It goes on to say that inviting loan offers for Davies could help speed up the process of him leaving Anfield.
