Liverpool should dream big in the transfer market as they bid to defend their Premier League crown, according to their former forward Neil Mellor.
The Reds will finally get their hands on the Premier League trophy on Wednesday night having clinched it almost a month ago, and having been streets ahead at the top of the table for the vast majority of the season.
But instead of standing still and savouring the victory, ex-Reds forward Mellor wants the club to push on and target big names this summer, even though he admits that is unlikely to happen given the club's transfer policy.
"If it were possible, I’d like to say Robert Lewandowski, I think he’s the best striker in world football at the moment," Mellor, who helped Liverpool on the road to their 2005 Champions League win, told GentingBet.
"And I think [Kylian] Mbappe is going to be world class footballer in years to come.
"When I look at Liverpool, they have a really settled team unit at the moment and they don’t want to unsettle it by bringing in certain personalities and I think Liverpool have to be careful.
"I’m sure the fans will they want their own individual superstar but Klopp hasn't been able to get the superstar – he has turned players into superstars Mane and Salah, so we may see another player like this."
Mellor stresses that it is the personality of the players which is most important to Jurgen Klopp as he looks to build his squad.
"Liverpool will be linked with a lot of players but it will be up to Jurgen Klopp and the personality he wants to come to the club," he added.
"Liverpool aren’t desperate for any player in any position and they are really strong within their squad. They may need some numbers with a couple of players leaving but it’d be interesting to see which type of player Klopp chooses.
"The good thing for Liverpool is now that they are World Champions, Premier League Champions and still European champions, as things stand, they can attract pretty much any player.
"That is the big difference from when Jurgen Klopp came in a few years ago, Liverpool can now attract the top players so if there are players that Jurgen is going to want to go and get, the club will back him."
