Liverpool will spend money this summer in an attempt to get even better.
That’s according to respected Evening Standard journalist David Lynch, who was basing his comments on an interview with chairman Tom Werner.
Jurgen Klopp set to be backed heavily again this summer if Tom Werner’s words to us yesterday are anything to go by. “We’re only going to get stronger,” the #LFC chairman promised. https://t.co/uuSLwnjtzB

“We’re only going to get stronger. Ninety-seven points, it’s a remarkable year,” Werner said.
“We obviously didn’t win the league but we’ll be back next year and we’ve got a lot of motivation to win the league next year. I’m excited.
“It was a magical season. Obviously we’re disappointed that we didn’t win the league but it was a remarkable season and the squad is exciting.”
Following the Champions League Final, attention will focus on which areas of the squad we can actually improve.
If Simon Mignolet leaves, we’ll need a new backup keeper. With Alberto Moreno’s expected departure, another left-back is a necessity.
Then, with Daniel Sturridge leaving on a Bosman, a new striker is required – but one with the pace and dynamism the Englishman now lacks.
This is where we hope the club to spend big – along with the possibility of a creative midfielder.
With Naby Keita settled in though, and the option of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, the midfield will be far stronger in 2019/20 anyway.
We don’t think there’ll be huge additions. After all, we’re superb from one to eleven – but increasing the depth in squad quality will be crucial if we’re to fight on all four fronts.
