The subject of Liverpool summer signings is a fascinating one.

With Jurgen Klopp’s side vying to win a quadruple this season – and completing 50 percent of that achievement so far – who on earth can the Liverpool bring in to improve this squad?

Even if the Reds fail to win the Premier League and Champions League, Klopp’s squad is still absolutely immense and finding players to improve it could be quite difficult.

However, the former Borussia Dortmund manager has reportedly given the greenlight for the Anfield outfit to sign Antony from Ajax.

According to UOL in Brazil, the Liverpool boss has endorsed a summer transfer for the 22-year-old – and even Manchester United-bound Erik ten Hag knows what a good player he is.

Ten Hag, who manages Antony in Amsterdam, raved about his player via De Telegraaf this week.

He said: “If Antony were to go, it would be a loss for Ajax. You have no-one in the current squad who can take over his position. He is top class.”

Manchester United a threat

With Manchester United also interested in Antony, in light of Ten Hag’s appointment [The Telegraph], the Red Devils represent a genuine threat to Liverpool in this regard.

However, it was reported last month that Juventus were actually favourites to sign the young South American.

Honestly, Liverpool don’t really need him.

Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane won’t both be leaving Anfield this summer, and with Luis Diaz proving himself a revelation, and Diogo Jota capable of playing out wide, Klopp is fine for wingers.

Both Klopp and Julian Ward will oversee Liverpool summer signings, with Michael Edwards set to leave Merseyside next month upon the expiration of his contract.

But even though the Reds boss likes Antony, Ward might argue that other positions are a bigger priority.
