There has been some suggestion that Liverpool will look to bring in an experienced midfielder, but Carvalho, Bellingham and Ramsay indicate that Ward is purposefully targeting the next generation. Under Edwards, Liverpool largely targeted players in their mid 20s who were just entering the prime of their careers.
But they may need to start planning for the future with the likes of Van Dijk, Joel Matip, Thiago, Jordan Henderson and Sadio Mane all 30 and above. Carvalho has already been confirmed and will join the likes of Harvey Elliott, Ibrahima Konate and Curtis Jones as young stars in the Liverpool squad.
And signing both Ramsay and Bellingham would only add to that array of talents for the future.
