Pundit claims Liverpool cannot compete for PL title with current squad; expects Klopp to sign Bundesliga midfielder

Posted by

Tim Sherwood believe Liverpool do not currently have a squad capable of competing for the Premier League title this season and is expecting the Reds to complete the signing of Ryan Gravenberch from Bayern Munich during the current transfer window.

The Dutchman is reportedly unhappy with the lack of game time he’s had since moving to the Allianz Arena last summer and Jurgen Klopp’s side are believed to be showing interest in the Netherlands international with senior figures from the Anfield club travelling to Germany recently to find out more about the 21-year-old

Liverpool have already signed three new midfielders this summer but more reinforcements are needed if the Merseysiders are to be real contenders for the title according to Sherwood.

“If you looked at their squad at the moment, can they be the champions of the Premier League again? Absolutely not,” he told Sky Sports News (via HITC). “But anything can happen in the next couple of weeks.

“I am sure Ryan Gravenberch will go in there, the midfield player from Bayern. Hasn’t played since he has been there.”

Although we’ve brought in Alexis Mac Allister, Dominik Szoboszlai and Wataru Endo you can’t help but feel that we still need another new face in the engine room.

We’ve seen five midfielders leave the club this summer, including our club captain Jordan Henderson and the experienced figures of Fabinho and James Milner.

Gravenberch was one of the hottest prospects in Europe when he was at Ajax and he was expected to take his game to the next level after joining the German champions.

Earning a spot in the starting XI has proved difficult for the midfielder, though, so he could be tempted by a move to Liverpool if we’re to table an offer.

He’d be able to join up with his compatriots Virgil van Dijk and Cody Gakpo at Anfield and he could flourish under Klopp.

It’ll be interesting to see what further business we complete before the window slams shut at the end of the month.

More Stories Liverpool Ryan Gravenberch Tim Sherwood


  1. For once Tim Sherwood is right.
    Players who’ve left the club.
    Phillips soon
    Arthur melo
    Thiago possible

    A big chunk of last season’s squad, a massive cut in the wage bill. More profit for FSG.

    One or two long term injuries to key players like Alisson, van dyke, or Salah and the season is over .

    We only have one right back in Alexander Arnold. Still reliant on the unreliable matip and Gomez. The midfield without the ball isn’t good enough.

    30 year old Japanese player and Ryan gravenberch who hasn’t played for a year isn’t going to improve anything.
    FSG doing the rebuild on the cheap. Nothing new there. Fill the squad with mediocrity.

    1. Fully agree as Liverpool supporter from Namibia ,to win Barclay’s you should have quality backup on the bench and not just numbers ,currently Liverpool are operating with no backup for defense and midfield which is no go for a big team like Liverpool, my opinion still stand ,let’s sign a quality CB , RB and DM and move Trend to the midfield , no use having speedy Frontline without a ball distributer and cover for the Defense from midfield…We can see if Trend come into midfield and Konate go out to cover him there’s a big gap in Central defense, No quality DM to comeback and assist the Captain
