There’s a quantity of Liverpool fans that believe our work in the transfer window is done.
After failing to get the Nabil Fekir deal over the line, everything’s gone very quiet, and a portion of supporters are disappointed with the work done to date, despite the fact we’ve enhanced our midfield tenfold by securing Fabinho and Naby Keita.
But Jurgen Klopp has suggested there’s still very much plans to improve the squad further and that the club will be working on new signings right up until transfer deadline day.
“The work [on new signings] is always going on, that’s how it is,” he told LiverpoolFC.com. “Why should we stop until the window is closing?
“It’s all good in the moment. We will see what happens and I will not—and don’t want to—say it looks a little bit better in that department or this department.
“If all the players are coming back and healthy from the World Cup then we have already a really, really good team—and that’s the only thing I need to know.
“What happens on the other side, we will see, but we don’t finish thinking about it before the last day of the window.”
In our opinion, there’s a few areas that still need bolstering.
Firstly, we need a playmaker – a replacement for Coutinho. We think it would be remarkably naive to go two windows without bringing one in, having sold our former Brazilian no.10 at the beginning of January earlier this year.
Secondly, a goalkeeper should be a priority, although it looks like Loris Karius will be entrusted with the no.1 spot again.
Lastly, we’d buy another wide-forward, someone with pace who can come off the bench for Mo Salah or Sadio Mane.
On top of this, there’s plenty of players who need to be shipped out, such as Daniel Sturridge, Lazar Markovic, Simon Mignolet, Sheyi Ojo and a selection of others.
Like Klopp suggests, work to be done!
