Liverpool: Club must overhaul to excite fans

Liverpool: Club must overhaul to excite fans - Liverpool News

Liverpool must bring in numerous players to get fans excited for next season following a so far disappointing campaign, according to Matt Addison.

The Lowdown: Another setback

The Reds’ miserable campaign suffered another blow after they were pulled apart by Wolverhampton Wanderers in a 3-0 defeat at Molineux.

Jurgen Klopp’s side are floundering in tenth place in the Premier League and 11 points behind the top four and Champions League qualification, with defeat at relegation threatened Wolves another unacceptable result and performance.

Liverpool had the chance to potentially turn the tide on their season in the January transfer window but the sole arrival of forward Cody Gakpo for £37m has so far failed to solve their issues, with yet him to score or assist in six games in Merseyside.

The Latest: Addison’s comments

Speaking on the Blood Red live stream following the Wolves defeat, Addison claimed that the Reds must go big in the summer not just to add quality but to get the fans excited for a fresh campaign come the summer, saying:

(10:07) “They’re going to have to spend big whatever happens in the summer, even if they don’t have Champions League football, even if Jude Bellingham decides he wants to go somewhere else.

“There’s no choice really they’ve got to go out, they’ve got to make 3, 4, 5 signings, they’ve got to have a clear out, players are coming to the end of their contracts, there are going to be changes within this Liverpool squad.”

Reds fans, do you remember how many players Liverpool signed last summer?

The Verdict: Overhaul needed?

Liverpool are on the verge of a crisis given their miserable form, ownership concerns with Fenway Sports Group looking for new investors to the club (via Liverpool Echo) and currently facing the prospect of losing six first-team players when their contracts set to expire at the end of the season (Transfermarkt).

Problems regarding FSG’s potential sale of the club mean that they’ll be reluctant to spend given their intention to limit their financial impact in the club, which then leaves the departure of first-teamers for free difficult to contend with amid limited funds available to replace them alongside other incomings likely wanted by Klopp.

The Anfield outfit have been heavily linked with a swoop for Borussia Dortmund sensation Jude Bellingham with the Liverpool Echo reporting that Enzo Fernandez’s British record move to Chelsea worth £107m will almost certainly see Dortmund want more for the teenager, throwing up another question of quality or quantity in the window considering potentially more limited spending.
