Liverpool have reportedly identified the two Arsenal targets to solve their left-back crisis.
Jurgen Klopp has told the club he wants Fulham youngster Ryan Sessegnon and Schalke regular Sead Kolasinac in the summer as the Reds look to relieve James Milner of his left-back duties.
Liverpool have used Milner for most of the season after Alberto Moreno was dropped from the starting eleven on the second day of the season.

Milner has taken to the position well, but is not a long-term option as naturally a midfielder and aged 31.
Kolasinac has just six months left on his contract and Klopp believes he could go straight into the starting eleven if he was to arrive at the club in the summer.
Klopp has raided the Bundesliga twice before for defenders as Liverpool boss with Ragnar Klavan following Joel Matip to the club last summer.

Matip played alongside Kolasinac and Klopp wants the 23-year-old to take over immediately from Milner.
Kolasinac is an international with Bosnia and Herzegovina and is reportedly a target of Arsenal.
Fulham youngster Sessegnon has slowly been grabbing the attention of other clubs as he has made 13 appearances in all competitions.

The 16-year-old is considered one for the future by Klopp and was the youngest ever player to score in the Championship back in August.
Liverpool are not expected to make any defensive signings in January, but the Sun claim Kolasinac and Sessegnon are the club’s top left-back targets.
Arsenal were linked with a move for the youngster this time last year with reports claiming they failed in a deadline day bid for the teenager.
