Alexis Mac Allister deal ‘done’, Mason Mount has a good chance – Dream Liverpool XI for 2023/24 with four  other transfers

Our dream line-up at Liverpool for the 2023/24 season as Jurgen Klopp can add three Premier League stars to his ranks, including Brighton’s Alexis Mac Allister.

It is inconceivable that Liverpool could field a brand new midfielder in the Premier League opener of 2023/24. It almost goes without saying that there will be a change or two, and those need to be started.

The Telegraph’s Chris Bascombe has reported that the Reds are looking to sign four players this summer: three midfielders and a defender.

The center of the park has been Liverpool’s biggest weak spot this season as they have gone from title contention to a near-secure place in the Europa League. Here, presents a dream XI after a summer makeover, based on the transfer updates we know so far.

Alisson, the Reds’ best player this season, is in goal, with Ibrahima Konaté and Virgil van Dijk ahead of him. The club could sign a new centre-back but expect it to be a younger player who will initially provide better support before fighting for a long-term starting role. One candidate could be Sporting’s 21-year-old Gonçalo Inácio, who according to Goal was scouted by Liverpool and has a $49m/£39m/€45m release clause (to be picked up via Sport Witness).

Trent Alexander-Arnold will nominally remain at right-back, but will move to midfield positions when Liverpool have the ball, while Andy Robertson will retain his place at left-back. There have been some calls for a more natural left-back in the new system, sometimes forcing Robertson back into a back three, but Jurgen Klopp is unlikely to lose faith in one of his more consistent players.

As we move into midfield, we see some new faces. According to Argentinian broadcaster TyC Sports, Liverpool have already ‘finalised’ a transfer deal for Alexis Mac Allister and are just waiting to make the deal with Brighton official.

In our dream vision, Mac Allister reunites with Moisés Caicedo (linked by The Mirror) on Merseyside, with Liverpool pairing two young player of the season nominees in a midfield that could be set for years.

The final piece of the puzzle is Mason Mount, who could well be available for transfer as he reaches the final 12 months of his Chelsea deal.

Football London’s Bobby Vincent has told This is Anfield that Mount is presently ‘more likely’ to join Liverpool than he is to renew his deal at Stamford Bridge. He could put up big goal contribution numbers in front of the shield of Fabinho and Alexander-Arnold.

Klopp’s strongest frontline features Mohamed Salah, the second longest-serving player in the side after Alexander-Arnold, and two recent additions in Cody Gakpo and Luis Díaz.

Gakpo can play the false-nine role, while Diaz can be the wide threat on the left, emulating the dynamic of the iconic Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mané frontline, and leaving Diogo Jota and Darwin Núñez as impressive options from the bench.

Dream Liverpool XI for 2023/24: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Konaté, Van Dijk, Robertson; Caicedo, Mount, Mac Allister; Salah, Gakpo, Díaz.

Liverpool FC could inflict second damage on Chelsea with a £50 million star on their radar after Mason Mount

Liverpool could make Chelsea suffer twice this summer by signing Mason Mount and Romeo Lavia.

Liverpool could double their damage against Chelsea in the summer transfer window by signing one of their midfield targets and buying Mason Mount. The Reds are believed to be among the top suitors for Mount, although rivals

New Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino would prefer to keep Mount, but there has been no progress in contract negotiations between the club and player representatives since the reopening. It looks more likely the 24-year-old midfielder will leave Stamford Bridge than stay. And the Blues have started selecting targets as Pochettino reworks the squad this summer, with Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Conor Gallagher other midfielders likely to leave. West Ham captain Declan Rice is a long-term target, while Southampton’s Romeo Lavia is another target.

The Saints were recently relegated from the Premier League, despite retaining Belgian Lavia, who Chelsea have been looking to sign for £50m this summer. The 19-year-old defensive midfielder had just signed from Manchester City two months earlier for £14m.

City have a buyout clause worth £40m, with the idea that Southampton could sell before their return to the Championship this summer for an even higher fee. According to Goal, Liverpool are among the clubs that are particularly interested in the player and have been monitoring his progress.

The Reds are currently mainly working on deals for Alexis Mac Allister and Mount, but it is claimed that Anfield’s recruitment department believe Lavia could be the difference maker under Jurgen Klopp. Signing Liverpool would be another setback for Chelsea as Mount is also likely to leave and Rice appears to be linked with Arsenal.

Monaco’s Youssouf Fofana is another target, while Sporting’s Manuel Ugarte and Borussia Mönchengladbach’s Manu Kone are also in their sights. But Lavia – still a teenager – is the youngest of all and the Belgian international has a very high cap. The fact that Chelsea were willing to make such a big offer to him 12 months ago shows how much they appreciate him. And Liverpool could add to the pain by signing Mount and then also buying Lavia from Southampton to alter their midfield selection.

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has given his approval for Mount’s potential signing. Speaking to The Anfield Wrap, he said: “Mason Mount is funny in that people always seem a bit unkind to him for whatever reason. I’ve never had it, I’m a huge fan. He is the winner of the Champions League.

“I really like him. He has the energy to push. He would create a bigger scoring threat in midfield than we could have from Jordan [Henderson] in that position right now. Mount is working hard. Every top manager who has worked at Chelsea has chosen him.

“He plays for England and I think the club also need to think about the English home situation. [James] Milner is going forward, [Alex] Oxlade-Chamberlain, Joe Gomez doesn’t play every week and will try to move on point, Jordan is getting older.

“This should be in the back of their mind. If we bought Mac Allister and Mason Mount, I would be very happy. I really want us to sign a defensive midfielder as well.
