With Liverpool having signed Alexis Mac Allister, the club will now move their focus on to other targets, with several midfielders reportedly being considered by Jurgen Klopp this summer - but who fits the Reds' system the best?

Typically, Liverpool acted quickly following the end of the season to finalise their move for Mac Allister, 24, with the Argentina international moving to Anfield in a deal worth an initial £35m.

Naby Keita, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and James Milner will all leave when their contracts expire at the end of June, while Arthur Melo returns to Juventus after the conclusion of his loan deal.
