While a portion of Liverpool's fanbase may prefer to see Liverpool add to their midfield ranks this summer, the likelihood at the moment is that Julian Ward will only fulfil that priority next year.

The 19-year-old plies his trade at Red Bull Salzburg and he could be an ideal alternative solution to the club considering FSG's strong relationship with the Red Bull group.

However, there could be one major obstacle in the deal with Borussia Dortmund likely expected to demand an extortionate fee for the youngster's services roughly in the £100m mark, and that could deter FSG from making a move.

His shooting from long-distance could also bring a new element to the Liverpool midfield with the Croatian averaging 2.54 shots per 90 last season, higher than any of Liverpool's midfield options, and scoring three goals from outside the box for Red Bull Salzburg as well as a spectacular strike against Barcelona in pre-season.

He is also someone who we previously profiled as an ideal alternative solution to Bellingham due to his playing style.

This summer, Liverpool will visit Red Bull Salzburg for a pre-season friendly further fortifying their close relationship.
