According to David Ornstein, Liverpool have already ‘done their big shop’ and that it would take ‘astronomical spending’ to significantly improve an already brilliant squad.
As a result, we should only expect cover at left-back to be acquired and then a versatile attacker to replace Daniel Sturridge.

While we agree that a left-back is a necessity to cover for Alberto Moreno’s Bosman departure, we’d suggest Ornstein has ignored the requirement of a new backup goalkeeper should Simon Mignolet exit.
The Belgium international is in his prime and surely cannot go on playing second-fiddle to Alisson any longer – so we need another decent stopper to support our world-class Brazilian.
It’s on this ‘versatile attacker’ we imagine Liverpool will spend proper money. We managed to get through this campaign without a serious injury to our starting front-three, and we have to assume we won’t always be so fortunate.
There’s obviously money to spend after reaching another Champions League Final – so just hope Michael Edwards can secure a good deal for the player Jurgen Klopp and the backroom teams identify.
With Rhian Brewster coming through, and the option of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain again, we’ll have incredible options should a top attacker also arrive.
