The Ox is back and fit, Brewster is the most natural finisher to come out of the club since Fowler and is fit again.

One decent playmaker from midfield that can unlock defences and a natural full back.
Should pick one of those up for about £150m in today's market.
Can't see owners letting that happen unless they lose Salah or Mane to Barca/Real.
A fully fit, in form Keita probably be a starter at some stage. Doubt Wijnaldum, Henderson and Fabinho will all be starting by end of season as they did in cl final.

Injury restricted Keita and Oxlade-Chamberlain to 1412 minutes (~16 games) in the league last season.

Barring any further injury complications I'd expect them to rack up the equivalent of at least a 38 game league season between them - in attacking midfield roles.

Ox is more of a dribber/shooter/presser but Keita is well able to pick a pass. Neither are stereotypical playmakers but both can make things happen in the final third - while also contributing well in terms of pressing & winning the ball back.

(...while I think his period in the sun at Liverpool may have passed Klopp also has Lallana, who played the equivalent of just over 5 PL games last season, at his disposal when it comes to rotation)

I'm not convinced that Klopp would see a playmaker as a priority - but I hope he has his ear to the ground for a front 3 player with pace who can deputise for Salah & Mane (...who in turn may be deputies for Firmino, via a formation change, when he needs a rest).

Unless Klopp has his eye on a youth player who is ready to take the next step (Adam Lewis perhaps?) then I think an investment on full-back cover would be very prudent - even if he still sees Milner as his first choice back-up.

Essential IMO. All 3 played a lot of football last year and all 3 are still playing a lot of football at present on international duty. One of them is bound to get injured next year.

Alisson 9 clean sheets in a row for club & country and looks like taking the Golden Glove in the Premier League, Champions League & Copa America in the same season

Brewster 19 now - if he has a future at this level he should be able to step up to the plate now. There are exceptions but generally top tier strikers establish themselves around 19-21 age.

Ben Woodburn will be 20 in a couple of months. Still a youngster but seems to have moved off the radar.
