Liverpool have a lot to work on for the upcoming Premiere League season.Not qualifying for the UEFA Champions League has made him analyse his own failure, and he understands that the situation is not right to give his rivals too much room to overtake them again, as Manchester City or United did.

That is why there is already new planning for next season's signings. He is concerned about the defence, as it was the most vulnerable of all. Despite having world-class defenders like Virgil Van Dijk or Alexandre Trent-Arnold, the German needs a strong man in his most vulnerable area.

One FC Barcelona player is catching his full attention. Xavi Hernandez's side are in the eye of controversy over alleged refereeing and the authorities are investigating whether they can play in European competitions. If found guilty, the Blaugrana would be eliminated from playing in continental championships.

And Liverpool want to take advantage of that. That's why they are already making efforts to sign one of their top defenders. An element that arrived recently to Barcelona and that the injuries had punished him, but later was strengthened as a starter within the scheme of the Spanish team.

The defender Klopp wants at Liverpool

Frenchman Jules Koundé has been tipped to join the Reds for next season. With the issue of Financial Fair Play, Barcelona would ask for a good sum and thus get rid of some managerial problems. However, the last word would be up to Xavi, who does not want his team to be completely dismantled beyond the punishments he could get.
