Liverpool chief Edwards has shortlist of five transfer targets

Liverpool football chief Michael Edwards has a shortlist of five transfer targets for the summer market.

The Daily Mail says Liverpool have assessed five starlets prior to the transfer window opening today, but Jurgen Klopp has changed his mind on Celta Vigo hitman Maxi Gomez.

Reds sporting director Edwards want to target young, hungry players who can put those in the first team under pressure.

Villareal's Samuel Chukwueze, Ajax's David Neres and Bayer Leverkusen's Julian Brandt are all in their sights.

Liverpool are also said to have ran the rule over Lille's Nicolas Pepe and Bristol City's Lloyd Kelly.

But, regarding Gomez, the Merseyside giants have cooled their interest.
