There’s no secret that Liverpool are drawing up a shortlist of possible players’ for next summer and theres a new name in the mix.
As reported by Neil Jones for GOAL: ‘Salzburg’s Luka Sucic is viewed as a potentially-elite prospect, and Liverpool boast a strong relationship with the Red Bull group, which owns the Austrian champions.
Whoever is eventually targeted, they are likely to fit a certain profile. Liverpool broke from their usual strategy to sign Thiago, an established star in his late-20s, from Bayern Munich in 2020, but they have been very much back ‘on brand’ since, with the arrivals of Diogo Jota, Ibrahima Konate, Luis Diaz , Darwin Nunez, Carvalho and Ramsay. We can expect that to continue going forward.

Luka Sucic is a 19-year-old Croatian who played 44 times in all competitions for Red Bull Salzburg last season, scoring 11 goals and recording five assists for the Austrian outfit.
The has a promising future ahead and if we were to move next summer, there would only be two years remaining on his current contract.
That may mean that a deal is possible and we could beat the crowd to his signature, alongside another marquee signing in the same position.
