Out of all of the sides in the Premier League, it is Liverpool who have moved the fastest to secure the signatures of two of the more household names in English football having wrapped up deals to sign both James Milner and Danny Ings so far this summer.
After the dust has settled on both players joining the Reds, following a somewhat underwhelmed response in some quarters, the consensus is that both players are sensible signings on Brendan Rodgers’ part.
Reds fans will know what to expect from Milner in particular after being part of a Premier League title winning squad in Manchester City over the course of the past few seasons.
As for Ings, Liverpool have secured the future of one of England’s finest young prospects and despite joining from what was an ultimately relegated side in Burnley last term, the former AFC Bournemouth man was by far and away a player who looked capable of playing for a superior outfit.
Sensible signings are required at Anfield after Brendan Rodgers got it wrong with the likes of Mario Balotelli and Rickie Lambert last summer and while these players may of course still come good, there will be an onus on Rodgers’ new arrivals to hit the ground running.
The aim will be for Liverpool to breach the Premier League’s top four again while seeing how far they can get in the respective cup competitions.
In order to enjoy success however, some more rebuilding work needs to be done and this is why we are today concentrating on just who else Liverpool can’t afford to lose out on signing this summer transfer window.
