Liverpool to struggle if they don’t sign anyone

Adrian Durham believes that Liverpool are too reliant over the likes of Salah, Mane and Firmino and would struggle next season if they don’t invest.

So far, Liverpool have not signed anyone in the summer transfer window apart from Sepp van den Berg. The young defender signed from FC Twente and is expected to be slowly introduced to first team football.

And it appears that the club isn’t looking to make any big-name signings this summer. Jurgen Klopp is happy with the players he has at his disposal.

While the likes of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino have been amazing over the years, many feel that the club still needs more depth.

And talkSPORT host Adrian Durham is surprised why the club hasn’t signed the likes of Wilfried Zaha or Gareth Bale.

Liverpool, let’s face it, they are totally and utterly dependent and reliant on their front three.

“And by the time the season starts they’re going to be knackered already.

“Look at who they’ve got in reserve. When Man City bring in [Leroy] Sane and [Riyad] Mahrez, is that the same as Liverpool bringing in [Divock] Origi and [Xherdan] Shaqiri? No!

“Liverpool were brilliant last season and they deserved the Champions League, but they need to keep improving to give themselves the best chance of the Premier League title.

“Harry Wilson and Ryan Kent may deliver, but nobody can definitely say they will – it’s a risk.

“City have more quality to call on.

“Jurgen Klopp is moaning about the schedule, but that won’t ease the problems. What will ease the problems is going out and signing a couple of really good players who can play in those positions.

“Why aren’t they in for Zaha or Bale? Why has [Nabil] Fekir gone to Spain for just £18m?

“They’ve lost to Sevilla and Dortmund in pre-season, and last year they had a great pre-season beating City, walloping Man United and Barcelona.

“By moaning about the schedule, is Klopp trying to wind in the expectations of fans a little bit?”
