Rodrygo signs, Salah stays, Olmo decision – Liverpool’s dream forward trio after £181m transfers…



Arne Slot, the newly appointed head coach of Liverpool, is faced with a series of decisions regarding the team’s forward options for the upcoming season.


While the focus leading up to the transfer window was primarily on strengthening the center-back position, recent reports have linked several forwards to a potential move to Anfield.


Despite already having a talented roster consisting of Darwin Nunez, Cody Gakpo, Diogo Jota, Luis Diaz, and Mohamed Salah, Slot will need to assess his squad during the upcoming pre-season to determine the best course of action for his debut season as head coach.


It is during this period that Liverpool will finalize their transfer plans, both incoming and outgoing. In light of the recent transfer speculation, the ECHO has analyzed how Liverpool’s forward line could potentially shape up.


However, it is important to approach these rumors with caution and skepticism.


Liverpool’s summer transfer plans are still shrouded in mystery, but it seems that their focus may be on bolstering their wide-forward options.


There have been consistent rumors linking three players to a potential move to Anfield, and if these speculations hold true, they could become targets for the Reds.


One of the players frequently linked with Liverpool is Crysencio Summerville, the Leeds United forward.


It is rumored that Leeds United would demand a fee of £30 million to part ways with the Championship player of the year this summer.


Another player on Liverpool’s radar is RB Leipzig star Dani Olmo. Known for his versatility across the forward line, Olmo reportedly has a release clause of £51 million that is valid until mid-July.


Real Madrid’s Rodrygo has been loosely linked with Liverpool this season, especially after hinting at a potential departure from Santiago Bernabeu. Rumors suggest he could be available for £103million this summer.


Liverpool has a history of making significant investments in game-changing players during the transfer window. The combined cost of all three players could reach £181million, providing additional depth to their already strong attacking lineup.


Mohamed Salah’s future is also a topic of discussion as the summer transfer window approaches. With his contract expiring in 2025 and entering the final year, speculation about his next move is inevitable.


Consequently, speculations are bound to circulate regarding the potential developments concerning Liverpool’s star forward in the upcoming summer.


Once again, there may be associations with the Saudi Pro League, but it is uncertain whether an actual offer will materialize.


Nevertheless, Liverpool faces a crucial decision regarding Salah’s future this summer. They have three options: selling him, extending his contract, or preparing for his departure next summer without any transfer fee.


Unless a substantial offer is presented, selling Salah during this summer is unlikely to be considered by Liverpool.


Therefore, the club is keen on retaining the Egyptian talent at Anfield for as long as possible. However, it remains to be seen whether this will involve extending his contract or acquiring a player who can succeed him in the future.


It is highly likely that Liverpool will need to offload a player if they are planning to invest over £180m in three new forwards. Considering Salah’s commitment to the club, it seems plausible that Luis Diaz could be the one to make way.


In recent weeks, there have been numerous reports linking Diaz with a move away from Liverpool, with Barcelona being the most frequently mentioned suitor for the Colombian international.


Despite the speculation, Diaz is currently under contract with Liverpool until 2027.


Even if the interest from other clubs is genuine, Liverpool has every right to demand a fee that aligns with their valuation of the player, especially considering they initially paid £37 million to acquire him from Porto.


Liverpool may potentially request a sum exceeding the initial payment made for the 27-year-old player. If all additional payments are triggered, the total amount due for the Reds could reach £49 million.


Liverpool’s attacking choices following a successful transfer window: Darwin Nunez, Mohamed Salah, Crysencio Summerville, Diogo Jota, Cody Gakpo, Dani Olmo, Rodrygo.
