Towards the end of 2016-17, as Liverpool pushed for a top-four finish to crystallise their advancement under Jurgen Klopp, the sketch of their recruitment strategy for the new campaign was becoming apparent.

Their blinding, blitzing start to the season had underlined the electrifying potential of the team, but their stretched-out stumble at the turn of this year solidified the thinking that pedigreed reinforcements were required.
