Three days later it was La Liga opposition, with a clash against Sevilla in Boston on July 21.The Reds then made a trip to New York to play Sporting on July 24 before returning to the UK four days later for a game against Serie A giants Napoli at Edinburgh’s Murrayfield – the home of Scottish rugby.A clash against Ligue 1 giants Lyon takes place in Geneva on July 31 before Liverpool lock horns with familiar foes Manchester City at the beginning of August for in the Community Shield – the official curtain-raiser for the English club season.They had been scheduled to face Bundesliga side Schalke, but the game has been cancelled due to the earlier date on which the Reds open their league campaign.Liverpool 2019-20 transfer activity Having spent big money in recent years to bring in players such as Alisson and Virgil van Dijk, the summer of 2019 is set to be a relatively quiet transfer window for Liverpool.The squad that Klopp has built is a formidable one, which the 2018-19 campaign showed, and accordingly, the German coach is under no great pressure to strengthen too much.A forward, to take pressure off Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane, is high on the agenda when it comes to areas in need of bolstering. The likes of Timo Werner and James Maddison have been linked.There will certainly be a number of first-team departures, however, with Daniel Sturridge and Alberto Moreno leaving for free, while Nathaniel Clyne and Danny Ings will also be heading through the exit door. Liverpool players will surely be wondering what more they can do when they attempt to improve upon their last campaign in 2019-20.Jurgen Klopp’s job involves rallying his squad to go again after a season that saw them miss out on Premier League glory despite amassing a remarkable 97 points and that unenviable task gets under way in earnest in early July.
