It's an exciting time to be a Liverpool fan right now.

The transitional phase under Jurgen Klopp appears to be over, with the Reds now looking like a well-oiled machine ready to take football by storm.

Their form in the Premier League has been the most consistent it's been since the Rafa Benitez days, while their success in the Champions League is a huge indicator of serious progress.

What's more, they're not just reliant on star man Mohamed Salah. Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane, Andrew Robertson, Virgil van Dijk and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are all playing at the top of their game.

The summer transfer window will be key for Klopp, a chance to make the correct investments and turn this side into Premier League contenders.

Emre Can is the only key man likely to depart, but Liverpool have Naby Keita arriving from RB Leipzig to compensate for that.

However, some have suggested that the Guinean is not an out-and-out replacement for the more pragmatic German, so Klopp may have to add a new defensive-minded midfielder to his ranks.

And they may be in luck, because it has been reported that they are free to sign one of the most exciting talents on English soil as long as they make the right offer.

An inside story from FourFourTwo reveals that Wolves star Ruben Neves and his agent Jorge Mendes have an 'ongoing negotiation' with Liverpool.

Neves may have publicly stated that he is keen to stay at Wolves, but he and Mendes are keen on sealing a move to Liverpool.

The Portuguese midfielder's entourage travelled to England to discuss the deal and while nothing is set in stone yet, it is likely to advance in the coming weeks.

Mendes himself has been doing his best to compensate Wolves by eyeing up a high-profile replacement.

Benfica's Andreson Talisca - who's currently on loan at Besiktas - is the man in question, with the Brazilian said to be desperate to move to the Premier League this summer.

What a coup that would be. Neves has been arguably the Championship's best player after his move from Porto, scoring a plethora of screamers.

The ideal replacement for Can.
