Liverpool have reportedly identified Leroy Sane and Federico Chiesa as potential transfer targets for 2024.
Attack is an area where Liverpool are well stocked, yet there is uncertainty over whether they will be able to retain the services of Mohamed Salah in the long term.
Salah has less than two years remaining on his existing contract and there have been persistent rumours regarding a potential switch to Saudi Arabia, either this year or next.
Barring an astronomical bid and a change of heart from the player, the club legend appears destined to remain at Anfield for 2023-24, yet it will not prevent Liverpool from having to consider alternatives for the future.
There had bene an argument at one stage that Sane had not lived up to his potential at Bayern, yet 40 goals and 37 assists have come from 135 appearances in all competitions.
The well-documented issue with Sadio Mane may have contributed to a departure, yet it was his teammate who was sold earlier in the current window.
With two years remaining on his contract, though, Bayern will eventually have to try to negotiate a renewal with the 27-year-old, who netted twice in Bayern's 2023-24 Bundesliga opener against Werder Bremen last week.
Meanwhile, Chiesa is another player who has a contract at his respective club until 2025, yet Juventus would likely not stand in his way if they were able to cash in on his services.
That is despite the Italy international working his way back to fitness after a serious knee injury, with a total of four goals and six assists coming from 33 outings last season.
As it stands, it is unclear what Bayern or Juventus would demand for the aforementioned playmakers, but Liverpool would likely expect to make a profit from what they can generate from any Salah departure.
