What Is Liverpool's Biggest Transfer Priority After Signing Salah?

After signing Mohamed Salah, what should be Liverpool's biggest priority in terms of focus and allocation of funds?

After Mohamed Salah joined Liverpool yesterday, it is time to quickly focus on what's next. Liverpool have been linked with a huge bid for Kylian Mbappé despite the existence of reality in its unalloyed harshness and the significance of Roberto Firmino taking the number nine shirt to accommodate his new teammate.

A left back as a replacement for the outgoing Alberto Moreno is sought, but James Milner will still be considered as a first-team option in that position next season. An £11 million bid from Napoli was swiftly rejected, but Liverpool's reported interest in Faouzi Ghoulam could lead to an unlikely player swap.

Naby Keïta remains the top target for central midfield, but the position of RB Leipzig is clear: the player is not for sale. However, the dynamic Keïta could transform Liverpool's midfield and be the catalyst for the necessary depth in midfield—with flexibility to deputise in attacking positions—to withstand injuries and the festive schedule.

Virgil van Dijk is the player that would break Liverpool's transfer record by some distance, but that apology can be seen as a way back to the negotiating table or the end of any further interest in the towering defender. For those uncertain, it's the former.

Ultimately, this is for discussion. Stop by and just leave a position with or without a name. Perhaps ranking the positions or a detailed analysis would be preferable; as always, the choice is yours.
