Mark Lawrenson: Liverpool might need another left-back

Mark Lawrenson: Liverpool might need another left-back - Liverpool

Right now, there might not be a more complete team in world football than Liverpool.

From Alisson between the sticks to Roberto Firmino leading the line, the Reds look the real deal in practically every position.

As a result, ex-Liverpool defender Mark Lawrenson does not expect his former side to do too much business in the summer.

“I don’t think you can say that any team is lacking in areas if they get 97 points. They have over-performed,” the BBC Sport pundit told Goal.

“They might need another left-back to cover Andy Robertson, they are alright at centre-back, they are alright at right-back. Maybe a bit more of an attacking midfield player, or a No. 10.

“I don’t think he [Jurgen Klopp] will sign many players. I wouldn’t expect more than two or three maximum.”

As far as squad depth goes, as Lawrenson has already pointed out, the Merseyside club could probably do with the addition of another left-back.

Should Robertson, who has been excellent in both halves of the pitch this season, get injured, then Liverpool could be in trouble with no real alternative to the Scotland international.

James Milner, of course, has done a good job whenever he has been asked to fill in there.

But at 33 years of age, he is not getting any younger, making now a great time to sign a more natural cover option.

Such fine-tuning could go a long way for Liverpool next season as they prepare to do battle with Manchester City once again.
