Gary Neville explains Liverpool transfer problem after low-key summer window

Posted on


Gary Neville believes Jurgen Klopp has a transfer ‘problem’ at Liverpool – because his prolific front three are too good.

The Reds are somewhat short of attacking cover following the departure of Daniel Sturridge, who left Anfield at the end of last season after his contract had expired.

Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane form Klopp’s deadly trio, while Divock Origi is a more than capable back-up and proved that last year in the Champions League.

But they are still light on numbers in attack and Klopp decided against bolstering his forward line this summer, which will no doubt be a concern for Reds fans if any of their first-team strikers get injured.

And Neville, the Manchester United legend, has seemingly stepped in to defend Klopp’s transfer stance.

Speaking on a special ‘Big Season Debate’, he told Sky Sports : “Who’s going to come in as a striker at Liverpool?

“If you’re Liverpool wanting to spend £75million on an attacker or a forward, those front three that are there now aren’t going to be happy sitting on the bench, so you’re going to have to * *** them off right away and the guy coming in for £75million isn’t gonna sit on the bench, so you’re gonna have a bit of a problem.

“In the late 2000s, late 90s, with Beckham, Scholes, Keane and Giggs, they were too good, so anyone that came in was never going to get in, they were unbelievable.

“You couldn’t break that, you couldn’t break that four, so when Veron signed, he was always going to fail cause those four were set in stone.

“So that’s the thing if Liverpool did invest now, £75million, they’ve got a really great front three that they can’t probably refresh at this time as no one will come in, they’ll just look at it, as if you’re a striker from Barcelona or another club in Europe looking at Liverpool, you’ll think I’m not going there I won’t get in.”
