Liverpool have already had a busy time so far this Summer in the Transfer market, but here are three more signings which would mean the Premier League title would definitely come to Merseyside for the first time.
Last season felt like a major building block for Liverpool. Reaching a Champions League final and playing superb football in the process, Liverpool like to have returned to the force they once were. Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino formed a near unstoppable front three in Liverpool red last season.
German manager Jurgen Klopp has not rested on his laurels. He has added some real quality to Anfield in this window, Midfielders Naby Keita and Fabinho have been added, Keita for a club record fee. The club haven’t stopped there either, Switzerland international Xherdan Shaqiri has been signed, after Liverpool triggered his £13m release clause. The strength in depth the club has in midfield is now something to behold.
However, there are still a couple of issues which need resolving. Notably, the goalkeeping situation. The German manager has gone to great lengths to defend Loris Karius after his howler in the Champions League final. However, not signing a stopper and relying on Karius and Simon Mignolet as goalkeeping options could cost Liverpool dearly in their hunt for a Premier League title.
The club were also slightly ‘top heavy’ last season. The signing of Dutch centre back Virgil Van Dijk went some way to solving their defensive issues, but the club still often looked vulnerable at the back. The Anfield outfit too often relied simply on out-scoring teams to win, rather than being built on solid defensive foundations.
With that in mind, here are three signings Liverpool could make which would surely seal them a first Premier League title…
