The imminent signing of Roberto Firmino at Liverpool may well usher in a positive transfer window at Anfield.
Following the club’s disappointing season—and particularly their bleak end to the campaign—there is a sense of malaise around the Merseyside giants.

In this feature, we present five star additions who could transform the mood around Merseyside and fire the Reds back into the Champions League places.
