Ranking Liverpool’s summer signings so far – Defenders prove real bargain but Brazilian struggling

Posted by

Liverpool signed seven first-teamers this summer, splashing out huge fees on Christian Benteke and Roberto Firmino and snapping up some real bargains in James Milner too.

All have featured for the first-team at some point already, and based on these contributions as well as their value for money, here’s how we’ve rated and ranked the new players so far.

7) Roberto Firmino – 5/10

Premier League football has been a real baptism of fire for the Brazilian international, who arrived from Bundesliga side Hoffenheim for a fee which could rise to £29m. He struggled for fitness early on due to his Copa America commitments, and has been mostly played out of position by Brendan Rodgers – who’s used him on the right instead of centrally. As a result, he’s failed to register a goal or an assist yet, and is going to be out for some time with the back injury he picked up versus Norwich.
