Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is still searching for his first silverware as the Reds manager and that could happen this season.
The German tactician came close to winning his first trophy last season when they face Real Madrid in last season’s UEFA Champions League final match but they were unfortunately defeated 3-1 by the Galacticos.
However, the Merseyside club will have nothing at the back of their mind this season but to win a major trophy by the end of this campaign.
The Reds could finally end their trophy drought this season because of the following facts
Mohammed Salah’s Blistering Form
Egyptian forward Mohamed Salah was a revelation for the Reds throughout last season having scored more than 40 goals in all competitions.
The striker, who joined the Anfield Stadium outfits from Roma was in awesome form during the 2017-18 season, as helped the team to a fourth-place finish in the Premier League.
The Reds would definitely stand a chance of winning the League this season, should the former Real Madrid target maintain his form during the new season.
If there is any manager who spent much during the summer window, that would be Jurgen Klopp.
The manager was busy throughout the transaction period as he was able to complete his move for four world-class players.
Xherdan Shaqiri, Alisson Becker, Fabinho, Naby Keita all joined the Merseyside club this summer, ready to play a huge role to help the manager win his first trophy as Liverpool boss.
Arsenal in last-minute rush deal for AS Roma midfielder
English Premier League club Arsenal are also in a last-minute rush to complete a deal for a midfielder before the summer transfer window ends on October 3.
The Mikel Arteta team have already secured the signature of Willian from Chelsea and Gabriel Magalhaes from Lille while two other players have been made permanent as they were on loan at the club.
The Attention has since been shifted to the search for a midfielder and the Gunners have been linked with the signature of Atletico Madrid midfielder Thomas Partey and Lyon star Houssem Aouar but they are yet to snap of the signature of any of the two.

The asking price has been the challenge for the Gunners to secure the service of any of the midfield targets and that could force them into considering other options.
Italian publication ll Messaggero, cited by Daily Star reports that the North London outfit are now considering the signature of AS Roma midfielder Amadou Diawara and will involve Lucas Torreira in the deal.
It is understood that £19 million will be enough to convince AS Roma to release the 23-year-old and the said fee will not be paid completely with the involvement of Lucas Torreira in the deal.
One of these two surprise names could end up at Man United
Man United have been told that England international winger Jadon Sancho will not be leaving Borussia Dortmund this summer transfer window as their bid of £90 million was rejected.
The Red Devils are, therefore; set to respond to the rejection of their bid by making moves to secure other alternatives despite the scarce options available in the market.
Barcelona forward Ousmane Dembele has been linked with a move to the Old Trafford as he now emerges as the top target but it is understood that it will be difficult to convince hi of a move as he is not ready to leave Camp Nou despite the lack of playing time.

However, it is believed that Man United will look to bring in one player on loan with a report claiming that they could be considering the option of Edison Cavani and Luka Jovic as both players have been offered to them.
Edison Cavani is now a free agent as he has left French Ligue 1 outfit Paris Saint Germain. It is believed that it will be easy for the Red Devils to convince him of a deal before the end of the summer window as he is yet to find a new club.
Luka Jovic is also on the books of Real Madrid but he has lacked playing time and that is enough to convince hi of a move.
EPL: Will Man United still move in for Bournemouth duo?
Man United have been linked with the signature of Bournemouth stars David Brook and Josh King but there is yet to be any development on their interest with few days left to the end of the summer transfer window.
It has been a very long summer transfer window for the Red Devils for failing to secure the services of most of their targets. Ajax star Donny van de Beek is the only major signing made by Man United this summer window despite being linked with a long list of names.

However, the Manchester Evening News report that it is unlikely for the Red Devils to sign Josh King and David Brooks especially now that they are desperate to conclude a deal before the summer transfer window.
David Brooks scored seven goals in 33 appearances for the Cherries in the first season but spent was out to injury in most part of the last campaign. That might have limited the number of his suitors and might have convinced the Red Devils not to make a move for him.
The need for manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at the moment is a winger and a defender as that has been very difficult to come by especially with the rejection of their bid for Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho.
Man United finally told Sadio Mane’s teammate is available, learn fee, terms
English Premier League outfit Man United with few days to the end of the summer transfer window strives to find an alternative to Jadon Sancho as they have failed to reach an agreement with Borussia Dortmund.
Of the several options available, the Red Devils have made an inquiry about the availability of Senegalese star Ismaila Sarr, according to The Telegraph as the player is heavily linked with a move away from Watford this summer transfer window.
The Telegraph has, therefore, claimed that the Red Devils’ attempt was to secure the service of the winger on loan as they hope to land Jadon Sancho in the future.

However, Man United have been told that the option of a loan deal for Ismaila Sarr will not be accepted as they are only open to part ways with him on a permanent basis for £45 million.
Watford are now relegated from the Premier League but the quality of Ismaila Sarr was never hidden as he gave a good performance in the league to have attracted interest from the Red Devils.
According to Transfermarket, Ismaila Sarr started 23 games for the Hornets and directly contributed to 12 goals (6 goals and 6 assists).
Two reasons why N’Golo Kante would have considered United move
The Red Devils can boast of Donny van de Beek, Bruno Fernandes, and Paul Pogba in their midfield and now have a need for a strong defensive midfielder that will help the flair players moving forward, this is the reason why they are being linked with the signature of Chelsea star N’Golo Kante.
N’Golo Kante is already out of favour at Chelsea and has been linked with a move away and Man United are reported to be considering the option.
A report claims the former Leicester City defensive midfielder would have considered a move to the Old Trafford for two reasons but there seems not to be a concrete offer from the Red Devils.

It is reported that a move to Man United would have been possible and easy for the World Cup winner because of his desire to remain in the Premier League.
The second reason for why he would have loved a move to United is the fact that he will be happy to link up with his friend Paul Pogba, according to The Athletic’s David Ornstein.
However, it is unlikely that N’Golo Kante will be leaving the Stamford Bridge as Man United did not make any formal move to snap up his signature while manager Frank Lampard is still interested in having him around.
Who should Arsenal sign? Houssem Aouar or Thomas Partey
Arsenal have been heavily linked with the signature of two midfielders in this summer transfer window with the hope that they will conclude at least one of the deals before October 5.
Although it has been difficult for the Gunners as Houssem Aouar and Thomas Partey both have high price tags on their head by French Ligue 1 Lyon and Spanish La Liga outfit Atletico Madrid and it has been difficult for Arsenal to meet.
Atletico Madrid are requesting the sum of £45 million as the release clause for the Ghanaian international while Lyon have also insisted on £50 million for Houssem Aouar and earlier bids have been rejected but the Gunners are believed to be preparing an improved bid for the Ligue 1 player.

Arsenal legend Nigel Winterburn in his opinion claims that it is a positive thing for Arsenal to be linked with players like Houssem Aouar and Thomas Partey but noted that they must sell some of the existing midfielders in the team to create space.
He, therefore, prefers the signing of Thomas Partey ahead of Houssem Aouar, noting that the Atletico Madrid midfielder is quick, solid, and powerful without the ball as much as on it.
He added that the ability of Partey to take the ball in tight situations and go past the opposing midfield players will open space in and around the opponent’s defence for goals to be scored.
EPL: Manchester United In Talks To Sign Dembele On Loan
Three-time European champions Manchester United are reportedly in talks to sign Barcelona player Ousmane Dembele on loan for the season.
This is according to the report via popular British media outlet Sky Sports.
The Red Devils have turned their attentions to French international Dembele after they failed to convince Borussia Dortmund to sell their prized asset, Jadon Sancho.
The 20-year-old Borussia Dortmund player was the top target for Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer who wants to add a right-wing specialist to his squad.

Manchester United had to change direction after Borussia Dortmund placed a €120m transfer fee on their player.
The Red Devils were willing to offer €90m for the player who has been on their radar for the better part of the last two years.
Barcelona attacker Ousmane Dembele is the alternative for Jadon Sancho if they can sign him on loan.
Dembele has a poor injury record and that has been the biggest problem during his time at the Nou Camp.
The Frenchman is fit after several months out injured earlier this year.
His arrival at Old Trafford could lead to the exit of right wing specialist Daniel James.
The Welsh international has been linked with both Leeds and Aston Villa.
Luka Jovic Wants Man United Move
Real Madrid striker Luka Jovic has told Premier League giants Manchester United that he wants to join them before the transfer window ends in the coming days.
According to the Daily Star, the player’s agent has encouraged the Red Devils to firm up their interest in the Serbian international.
Manchester United have been strongly linked with two strikers in the past few days and Luka Jovic is one of those two players.
Free agent Edinson Cavani is the other striker linked with the Red Devils after the end of his contract at French club Paris Saint Germain (PSG).

Luka Jovic is a reported loan target for Manchester United who are hoping to capitalise on his bad first season at Real Madrid.
The Serbian striker was one of the most sought after players in European football last summer and that culminated in a €60m (£55m) transfer to Real Madrid.
Jovic left German Bundesliga side Eintracht Frankfurt for Madrid but he has not been able to show the form that made him one of the hottest strikers in Europe during his stay at the Estadio Santiago Bernebeu.
He scored two goals in 27 appearances in all competitions for Real Madrid last season as he was also disturbed by several injury issues.
