International football takes center stage over the summer, and Liverpool will have plenty of reasons to be interested in Euro 2024.

The Reds could have as many as 11 players representing the club at the tournament in Germany. Virgil van Dijk, Ryan Gravenberch, Cody Gakpo, Diogo Jota, Ibrahima Konate, Dominik Szoboszlai and Andy Robertson are all set to feature, although Ben Doak has unfortunately had to pull out through injury.

They could be joined by four more of their teammates, with Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joe Gomez, Jarell Quansah and Curtis Jones all in England’s provisional 33-man squad, which will be cut down to 26 later this week.

But they’re not the only players that will interest the Reds. With the transfer window set to open next week, there will be plenty of options for Arne Slot and Richard Hughes to keep an eye on. We’ve taken a look at the 23 names that could be of interest to Liverpool at Euro 2024.

Group A

Hosts Germany will be the main focus for potential transfer targets for Liverpool, with two options standing out among the rest.

Jamal Musiala could be set for a big tournament. Already with more than 150 appearances for Bayern Munich at just 21, he will be one of Julian Nagelsmann’s key midfielders, with the Independent suggesting Liverpool is among a host of clubs interested in his services back in April.

He’s not the only youngster who could catch the eye. Florian Wirtz has had an incredible season with Bayer Leverkusen, and while a move away is now probably unlikely, you can be certain there will be plenty of eyes on him.

Leroy Sane, meanwhile, has been touted as a potential replacement for Mohamed Salah in the past. At 28, he might be a little beyond the usual age range Liverpool would target, but he will be worth watching.

Group B

Spain offers a couple of options for Liverpool in Group B. Midfielder Martin Zubimendi has been touted in the past as a possible option – whether he gets much time on the pitch at this summer’s tournament with Rodri likely to be the first-choice in the number six role remains to be seen.

Meanwhile, Dani Olmo has been speaking about his future ahead of the tournament. Spanish outlet SPORT claimed last month that Liverpool was among the sides interested in triggering the $65m (£52m/€60m) release clause in the 26-year-old's contract.

"It is clear that it is good to see your name related to great teams in Europe and the world, that motivates me, but I am focused on the Euro and I hope we can return with the trophy," Olmo told Mundo Deportivo. "Then we'll see. It's nice to see your name related to the greats, but I insist, it's nothing that bothers me. I am focused on the field and then whatever has to be, will be."

Italy also has a couple of players to keep an eye on. Nicolo Barella invariably gets linked with Liverpool every transfer window, and Jurgen Klopp was a big fan, although you’d imagine there would be other priorities for the Reds to focus on this summer.

Federico Chiesa, meanwhile, could become available. According to Sky Italia, Chiesa does not figure in prospective new Juventus boss Thiago Motta's plans, and could be offloaded to raise funds.

Group C

Benjamin Sesko is a name that has featured regularly in recent weeks. Liverpool may well be keeping an eye on him with Slovenia during the tournament, although The Standard has suggested that Chelsea and Arsenal may be leading the race.

Slovenia finds itself in the same group as England, and it might not just be Trent Alexander-Arnold that Liverpool fans will be watching with interest. Crystal Palace defender Marc Guehi has been touted as an option, with the Daily Mail suggesting last month the Reds are among the clubs interested in his services.

As for Anthony Gordon, the former Everton star has made no secret of his admiration for Liverpool recently. Newcastle certainly wouldn’t let him go cheaply, but it would appear to be a move the player would be keen on.

Group D

There’s already a strong Dutch influence at Liverpool with Virgil van Dijk, Ryan Gravenberch and Cody Gakpo. With Arne Slot taking over as head coach, that will only get stronger.

And he may well have his sights set on a couple of his former charges from Feyenoord. Goalkeeper Justin Bijlow and defender Lutsharel Geertruida have both been linked with moves to Anfield, with the latter even being spotted in the away end during the Reds’ draw at West Ham in April.

Borussia Dortmund star Donyell Malen has also been linked with Liverpool, while Teun Koopmeiners’ name always seems to pop up during the transfer window. Having already made his desire for a move to the Premier League clear, a reunion with his old AZ Alkmaar boss could be considered.

Group E

Belgium offers a couple of interesting attacking options for Liverpool to keep an eye on. Johan Bakayoko has already been touted as a possible long-term replacement for Salah, and he’ll be aiming to impress at his first senior international tournament.

Lois Openda, meanwhile, has been linked with both the Reds and Chelsea in recent months. His record of 28 goals and seven assists in 45 appearances for RB Leipzig in 2023/24 is certainly impressive enough to ensure he will be worth watching.

Elsewhere in Group E, Arne Slot already knows plenty about David Hancko. The Slovakia defender has already admitted to being a Reds fan, and his dream is to move to the Premier League, so the Feyenoord star might well be going all out to catch the eye this summer.

Group F

Group F is arguably the most interesting for Liverpool fans, with plenty of names having been linked from Portugal, Turkey and even Georgia.

There are plenty of standout names in the Portuguese side. Goncalo Inacio, Joao Palhinha and Pedro Neto have all been linked with moves to Anfield over the past 12 months or so, while Joao Neves is another name that has emerged recently. The Benfica star though looks as though he may be staying put in Lisbon, according to HITC.

Elsewhere, there’s another of Slot’s former stars to keep an eye on with Turkey. Midfielder Orkun Kokcu has been linked with a reunion with his old Feyenoord boss, although a reported $163m (£128m/€150m) release clause at Benfica may well put the Reds off.

Meanwhile, Georgia has already surprised many by reaching the tournament, and no doubt all eyes will be on their star man Khvicha Kvaratskhelia. Reports in Italy suggested last month that Liverpool is interested in the Napoli star, and an impressive tournament may well line him up for a big move this summer, even if it isn’t to Anfield.
