Liverpool have been among the quieter Premier League clubs so far in the summer transfer window as Profit and Sustainability Rules take centre stage.

June 30 has proved to be something of a PSR deadline day as teams across the top-flight look to off-load players to swing their balance back into the green amid the threat of sanctions. Last season, Everton and Nottingham Forest were slapped with ramifications for exceeding the Premier League losses threshold.

New head coach Arne Slot will be welcoming back the players in the coming weeks ahead of a busy pre-season schedule before the campaign gets underway with a trip to newly-promoted Ipswich Town. It looks set to be a hectic period until then with players returning from their breaks, as well as the international returnees with the European Championships and Copa America both in full-swing.

Liverpool could be busy in the transfer window and while fans continue to pick the bones of the daily transfer rumours, AI has had its say too. OLBG has used the tool to predict how the coming months will transpire in the Premier League and it has come up with some juicy deals.

Three areas have been outlined for the Reds to strengthen between now and the deadline on August 30. Departments such as midfield, central defence and striker have been outlined as positions to strengthen for the incoming Dutchman.

The departments have been highlighted for a number of reasons, according to artificial intelligence, and the likes of midfield have been pinpointed for improvement due to the further depth and quality needed following the departures of Jordan Henderson, Fabinho and Thiago Alcantara who leaves as a free-agent this summer.

Technology has predicted that Liverpool will be targeting a dynamic box-to-box midfielder who can contribute defensively and offensively with Feyenoord midfielder Quinten Timber outlined. Real Madrid's Aurelien Tchouameni has also been mooted, a move would see Liverpool reignite their interest in the Frenchman following their pursuit prior to his switch to the Spanish capital.

There are several different breakdowns in how the window has been predicted with 'potential outgoings', 'transfer strategy', 'type of players' and the aforementioned 'key areas to strengthen'. Artificial Intelligence has highlighted Liverpool's previous focus on young, high-potential players and they will continue to target those with the view to develop under Slot, meanwhile ensuring value for money and avoiding over-spending.

Tellingly, they have outlined players who are comfortable on the ball, can play in tight-spaces and fit in Liverpool's high-pressing, possession-based style. In the last 24 hours, Liverpool have been offered Newcastle United and England attacker Anthony Gordon as the Magpies attempt to raise funds before tomorrow's deadline for the accounts.

The ECHO understands Newcastle asked for defender Jarell Quansah as part of a deal that would see Gordon head to Anfield, but it has proven to be a stumbling block.

As well as midfield, defence has been pinpointed for improvement and is somewhat in-line with real-life circumstances. Previously, Liverpool had been forced to replenish their attack and midfield due to ageing members of the squad and much has been made that the defensive line is next on the agenda.

Despite Quansah's emergence, Liverpool are targeting Leny Yoro with the number of options decreasing after Joel Matip's exit was confirmed. OLBG's AI generator has predicted that concerns about depth has raised potential targets such as Levi Colwill and Bayer Leverkusen's Piero Hincapie.

The Reds goalscoring difficulties have also been highlighted after a difficult two seasons on Merseyside for Darwin Nunez. AI claims that despite options such as Diogo Jota, Cody Gakpo and the Uruguayan to lead the line, Liverpool need a consistent and prolific talisman with Aston Villa's Ollie Watkins and Viktor Gyokeres pinpointed as options.

It could also be a summer for departures as Slot becomes acclimatised to the North West and the Premier League. Already, Sepp van den Berg is attracting interest from around Europe after a fruitful spell at Mainz 05 but AI has named two first-team members who could also leave Anfield this summer. Caoimhin Kelleher is among them as the Irishman looks to earn a move in his bid to become a number one as he currently sits behind Alisson Becker in the goalkeeping pecking order.

Joe Gomez is another who has been outlined as a potential departure should he remain a back-up option, in a bid to secure first-team football. The England defender has previously been linked with an exit, most recently in December as he was pinpointed as an option for Tottenham Hotspur.

Liverpool will return to the Champions League after a year hiatus following the success of Jurgen Klopp's side last term. Slot heads into the unknown after taking charge of his first role in England and has been tasked with steering the Reds in the new era after the German's departure. AI has predicted that by focusing on these areas and types of players, the Reds can build on their strengths and compete both domestically and in Europe.
