Former Premier League striker Nigel Jemson has suggested that both Erling Haaland and Harry Kane could become targets for Liverpool next summer.
The Reds kept their powder largely dry throughout the transfer window, with their only first-team signing being the defender Ibrahima Konate from RB Leipzig.
The club opted against bringing in a new striker, with Roberto Firmino and Diogo Jota remaining their main options up front.
Who should get a new Liverpool deal next?

Next summer could be a huge one for players leaving their clubs, particularly those who are marquee names.
Haaland’s release clause of £68m becomes active next summer, meaning that there could be a scramble for his signature from a number of top European clubs.
The Norway international has been in electric form this season, scoring 11 goals in just eight games in all competitions.
And Kane could again be at the centre of a transfer saga after he failed to move to Manchester City after Euro 2020.
Thus, Jemson believes both could become options for the Reds.
Asked about whether Liverpool could spend big on a striker, he said: “You look at Haaland, where he’s going to be, he’s obviously got a clause in his contract next year. Kane. Is his destination City next year? Has Levy said ‘give me one season, you can go for sixty, seventy, eighty million’, whatever it may be?”
