‘Liverpool don’t need £100m signings’

Liverpool are European champions, but they still have not done what they are craving for. The Premier League trophy is still out of their reach and the Reds want to change that next season. Former Liverpool player John Barnes does not believe, however, that for winning the league title they need to spend too much money on a single player.

“I actually feel the opposite. I’m looking for something exciting but not necessarily anything new. Last season we needed players like Virgil van Dijk and Alisson to come into the team to be the main pieces in the squad and maximise the potential we had”, Barnes said and continued.

“This year, I don’t think there are any players who will be coming in to take the place of [Mohamed] Salah, [Sadio] Mane, [Roberto] Firmino, or Van Dijk, so instead what we need to do is supplement the squad. I don’t think we’re going to go out and get a player for £100m to go straight into the team, but we don’t need that.”
