Liverpool have been linked with Luis Suarez again. The Uruguay international was a huge hit during his time at Anfield and, now, could return from Atletico Madrid in the summer transfer window. So Express Sport will now take a look at how Jurgen Klopp’s side would look with the veteran back and with Ibrahima Konate and Aaron Ramsey.
Goalkeeper: Alisson Becker
Regardless of what happens at Liverpool, Alisson Becker will be their No 1.
The Brazil international hasn’t operated at the same level this season, which is understandable given everything that’s gone on behind the scenes.
But Alisson is still one of the best goalkeepers on the planet and, amid a difficult campaign, can keep his head held up high.
Liverpool are in safe hands with the Samba star between the sticks.
And Alisson won’t be going anywhere anytime soon, so is therefore guaranteed to remain.

Defence: Alexander-Arnold, Van Dijk, Konate, Robertson
Liverpool are going to look drastically better defensively the moment Virgil van Dijk returns from injury, with the Netherlands international still sidelined after being crocked against Everton back in October.
And, if all goes to plan, Konate will be lining up alongside the Dutchman next term.
Liverpool are determined to sign the RB Leipzig star and, at the current moment in time, a deal is looking increasingly likely.
At right-back will be Trent Alexander-Arnold, despite the England international struggling at times this term.
And, at left-back, will be Andy Robertson.

Midfield: Ramsey, Thiago, Henderson
Liverpool could benefit by moving Thiago Alcantara to the No 10 role.
The Spain international has struggled for consistency ever since joining from Bayern Munich back in the summer transfer window and, previously, flourished in that position for the Bundesliga giants.
Therefore, it could be in Klopp’s best interests to tinker with the Spaniard’s position.
Jordan Henderson is primed to remain a vital figure for the Reds, so should start both matches in the middle of the park.
And Ramsey could join as a replacement for Georginio Wijnaldum, who is widely expected to join Barcelona this summer.
Forwards: Salah, Suarez, Mane
If Liverpool were to re-sign Suarez, it would definitely spark much excitement.
Despite entering the twilight years of his career, the Uruguayan has still impressed with 19 goals and two assists from 26 La Liga matches.
Suarez would oust Roberto Firmino from the No 9 role, becoming the talisman of Klopp’s side in the process.
That would mean Mohamed Salah providing ammunition from the right wing, should the Egypt international stay at Anfield.
And Sadio Mane would do the same on the opposite flank, meaning Diogo Jota would have to settle for a spot on the bench.
