Gini Wijnaldum gave everyone a reminder of his quality over the weekend with his Netherlands goal - and it won't be the last time he does that. Do Liverpool need to sign a replacement for the Dutchman?

It still hurts that Wijnaldum isn't a Liverpool player if I'm honest, and his display for the Netherlands only solidified the belief that we've really missed a trick in letting him go.

No matter what people say, to find a replacement of his calibre, consistency and with such a good injury record, is going to be extremely difficult.

I feel like he's going to be one of those players that people don't fully appreciate until he's gone, sadly.

Florian Neuhaus, Youri Tielemans and Kalvin Phillips are being linked with moves to Liverpool. Are either of those names the right ones, or should there be another target?

I think all three of those names and the fact they're linked with a move to Anfield tells you about Liverpool's ongoing strategy with transfers, and that's buying for the present as much as the future.

We've seen that with Ibrahima Konate signing on the dotted line already - a young player with bags of talent, but who will most likely keep getting better.

I think all three of those players are of the same ilk, but if they all have a good summer at the Euros, I think their price tag will go through the roof which is a worry, and another reason as to why we shouldn't have let Gini go.

All three are dynamic, exciting players that I wouldn't begrudge pulling on the famous red jersey next season.

Where else would you look to strengthen across the squad this summer?

I still think that we need to invest in some more cover at the back, not at centre back but in the full-back areas as well as some more strength in depth going forward.

I know we have Kostas Tsimikas who can deputise for Andy Robertson when needed, but Jurgen Klopp's reluctance to use him for me is a worry.

And then on the other side, there's only youngster Neco Williams to cover for Trent Alexander-Arnold, and no disrespect to him, but he isn't capable of coming close to our number 66's levels.

It is a little concerning that if both Trent and Robbo were to pick up knocks, you'd think the alarm bells would be sounding for Klopp, and Milner won't be around forever to help out. So for me, that's one area.

Then up front, we need someone else like Jota to come in to provide real options and competition for Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino, especially as the three of them head into their 30s.

And as above, we need someone to fill the Gini void!

Looking elsewhere across the league, who do you think might challenge Man City at the top next season?

It's so hard to predict anything after last season, it really is!

You'd like to think that Liverpool will be in the mix again next season, but I think Chelsea will certainly be up there and if they make the right signings, United could be too.

Leicester are a funny one as they never quite seem to have enough in the tank but they are certainly a threat to those hoping for a top-four space as we've seen this season.

Impossible to predict at this point though, I reckon!

Which Liverpool player have you enjoyed (or are looking forward to enjoying) at Euro 2020 and who will get the furthest at the tournament?

I'm looking forward to seeing how Jota and Thiago get on for Portugal and Spain respectively and I think both have the potential to go far into the competition.

I am omitting Jordan Henderson from this conversation as I just get nervous watching him play for England! He's also just not the same player under Gareth Southgate either so while I wouldn't say I dislike watching him for England, it's not the best.

I also don't think England will do that well in this competition either, so it's definitely going to be nicer from a Liverpool perspective to watch our number 6 and 20.

Any other business?

I guess the clambering for signings is something that gets me going every season about now, and this year is just the same.

There will always be rumours, of course there will, but as soon as there's a link at the moment people are baying for blood if it doesn't happen - or when a signing that doesn't fit the agenda is made.

I think we should all know by now that Klopp, Michael Edwards and co have a plan and nine times out of 10, it comes good. So let's have a little faith again.
