Liverpool: Pundit tips Reds to spend big next summer -Liverpool

Liverpool are likely to spend plenty of money on new signings next summer, according to former Arsenal and Everton striker Kevin Campbell.

The Lowdown: Ward to replace Edwards

A big change will happen at Anfield at the end of the season, with the influential Michael Edwards leaving his role as sporting director.

It has been confirmed that Julian Ward will take his place from next summer onwards and he will be tasked with filling a big void.

After a quiet summer in the transfer market, Liverpool could need to make a number of reinforcements next year, with Ward potentially set for a busy start in the job.

The Latest: Pundit confident about signings

Someone who thinks that will be the case is Campbell, who told Football Insider that he believes the Reds will show plenty of transfer ambition:

It’s a real possibility, definitely. There is a lot of work to be done in the background at Liverpool over the next couple of seasons.

“Getting Julian Ward up to speed will be highly important over the next six months. Ward can’t learn on the job.

“It is all about timing. Edwards thinks the time is right now to leave. The club will try and make the transition as smooth as possible.

“If Liverpool can tie up a few contracts a bring a couple of players in before Edwards leaves, fantastic.”

The Verdict: Big summer at Liverpool

Next summer is vital, with Jurgen Klopp in need of refreshing a squad that has achieved great things but is also growing older together.

The likes of Joel Matip, Virgil van Dijk, Jordan Henderson, Thiago, James Milner and Roberto Firmino are all in their 30s, while Alisson, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane are now 29 years of age.

Having spent little in recent years there is no excuse not to go big this time around, ensuring Liverpool continue to grow with Klopp at the helm.
