Liverpool news: “Reds don’t need £100m signings”, says former star

Liverpool have improved significantly under the guidance of Jurgen Klopp and the Reds will be looking forward to ending their 29-year old Premier League title drought next season.

The Merseysiders have made just one signing in the ongoing window, with youngster Sepp van den Berg joining from PEC Zwolle. The Reds are unlikely to make any big name signing this season.

Former Liverpool star, John Barnes believes that the Reds don’t need to make big signings this window.

He said(via

“But there are players out there who can improve the next nine or 10 players after that, which is a relatively easier thing to do.

Our current rivals, even City included, currently need a few players to improve the first XI and there aren’t that many players out there like that. We don’t need that and we’re just looking for players to improve the squad.”

No matter how we feel about the players in the team, there is a certain dynamic and profile that they fit under Jurgen Klopp.

The likes of Kevin De Bruyne and David Silva are fantastic players, Liverpool under Klopp don’t want players like that. We have a team where we don’t have the best players as much as we need and have players who fit into the system Klopp has put in place.

The teams I played for had that similar clear understanding of our identity but it’s also apparent that we also haven’t seen that in the last 15 years at the club.

The club, the city, the fans have clear expectations of the effort and desire they want to see from this team and that’s the difference between the Liverpool team that you see now and the teams in the last 10-15 years.
