Liverpool face the toughest summer transfer decision of all with three deals pending

With a network of scouts across the globe, data analysts crunching the numbers and a crack recruitment team lowering the targets, the importance of signing the right players has never been more apparent for Liverpool.

As things stand, Liverpool have not received any formal expressions of interest from any club, with Al Ittihad reportedly wanting Fabinho, while Henderson is among several clubs a target for Steven Gerrard’s Al-Ettifaq.

However, that could soon change given the continued links coming out of Saudi Arabia with the league, which has already splashed hundreds of millions on acquiring talent from Europe in a bid to strengthen its position on the global stage.
