Steven McManaman discusses Liverpool’s summer transfer window and gives his thoughts on if the Reds need to sign more players.
“I don’t believe Liverpool need to make more signings this summer. Where would you put them? They’ve made three signings already this summer.
“They’ve brought in Fábio Carvalho and Calvin Ramsay, who are two players for the future and they’ve also brought in Darwin Núñez, who’s another player for the future to a certain extent but has cost them a lot of money.
“Players will have to leave as there isn’t enough space to fit everybody in. Keeping the players happy now is as hard a job as it is to jam all of these players into the team.
“I can see a number of players leaving, with Liverpool beginning to recoup some of the money they’ve spent. That just makes business sense.”
Anfield Watch Verdict
This seems like it’s going to be a debate until the end of the summer transfer window. 50% of fans think we need a midfielder and the other 50% think we have enough depth.
However, if we play a 4-2-3-1 then it doesn’t really matter as I can see the pair playing together in that midfield two.
Saying that, if we don’t sign a midfielder this summer then we definitely need one next summer transfer window as most of our midfielders will be over or closing in on 30.
Hopefully it’s Jude Bellingham but who knows at this point.
