What made Liverpool go after Slot

Liverpool were scouting all the top managers in Europe. Many names were linked with The Reds including club legend Xabi Alonso. Alonso was priority of the club but the spanish manager announced that he was staying with Bayer Leverkusen. Another name that was linked was young portugese manager Ruben Amorim. However that deal was reported to have collapsed too. This made Slot a top target and paved his way to Premier League.

Arne Slot prefers 4-2-3-1 lineup with two holding midfielders to strengthen the defense. His tactics to use wingers to create chances also makes this formation effective for attackers.

Possible Liverpool lineup next season

A lot of current Liverpool players seem to start next season too as regular starters. However the new signing could force them to adapt in new positions. As far as goal keeper is concerned, Alisson Becker will be undoubtedly be the first choice keeper.

The defense line could be different next season. Liverpool are linked with Feyenoord’s Lutsharel Geertruida who seems to follow Slot on his path to England. Along with him Antonio Silva is also linked heavily. Geertruida can play as right back too. Conor Bradley is showing his talent and may earn him a spot as regular starter. It will force Trent Alexander Arnold to play higher as holding midfielder. Arnold known for his involvement in attacking could adapt at this new position very soon.

The Midfield may showcase some of the regular starters along with some new faces. Currently Dani Olmo and Khephren Thuram have been linked with a move to Anfield. It would be also key to see what Mohamed Salah’s future holds with Liverpool.
