Liverpool could be set to officially unveil up to three new signings in front of a packed home crowd for arguably their biggest game of the season against Manchester Utd on Sunday.
The Reds are hopeful of completing deals for PSG defender Mamadou Sakho, Sporting Lisbon centre-back Tiago Ilori and Chelsea striker Victor Moses shortly, according to reports on Saturday.
BBC reporter Ben Smith tweeted today:
Mamadou Sakho and Tiago Ilori have undergone medicals with #LFC today. Both should be at Anfield tomorrow.

Brendan Rodgers is also keen to add Aston Villa goalkeeper Shay Given to his squad by the close of the transfer window on Monday night.
Reports on Friday evening suggested Sakho and Ilori would undergo medicals at Melwood on Saturday ahead of their permanent transfers to Merseyside, whilst it emerged today that Moses may be even closer to completing a season-long loan move:
It appears Moses may well have been at Melwood yesterday according to @PeterPhillips_ which would back up my news he was set for a medical.

Positive discussions are believed to be ongoing regarding a possible season-long loan agreement for Chelsea forward Moses – who is also of interest to West Bromwich Albion.
