Incoming Liverpool boss Arne Slot set for critical transfer decisions as five stars return

Arne Slot may yet be officially announced as Jurgen Klopp’s successor, but that hasn’t stopped the Dutchman from studying the inventory list that will greet his arrival at Anfield later this summer.

The 45-year-old is set to be named as Liverpool’s new head coach later this month after Anfield officials agreed a compensation package in the region of £9m with his current employer Feyernood, who he led to the Eredivisie title last season ahead of both Ajax and PSV Eindhoven.

And after Feyenoord’s 5-0 win over PEC Zwolle on Sunday afternoon, Slot admitted that he had watched the first part of Liverpool’s 4-2 win over Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday as goals from Mohamed Salah, Andy Robertson, Cody Gakpo and Harvey Elliott sealed a memorable win in Klopp’s penultimate Anfield fixture.

In keeping with the theme of recent weeks since he emerged as the favorite to succeed Klopp, Slot continued to play with an open hand in his post-match press conference over the weekend and joked that he would need to watch more than Liverpool’s recent game against Spurs if he was to be appointed as the Reds’ new boss.

In addition to the tapes of an illustrious nine-year era at Anfield though, Slot will also be made to review some of this season’s English Football League encounters as the likes of Tyler Morton, Fabio Carvalho and Luke Chambers have continued to earn their stripes in the professional game with productive loan spells away from Merseyside.

Elsewhere, Owen Beck and Sepp van den Berg also enjoyed impressive temporary moves away from Anfield in the 2023/24 season and will, like all of their peers, be evaluated by Slot in the early weeks of pre-season.
