5 players Liverpool should sign in this summer transfer window
The season is drawing closer and closer; the summer transfer window is moving at full swing. As the Red army marches on with Jurgen Klopp in an attempt to seal Champions League qualification come May next year, they would need some more new weapons in their arsenal.
The Premier League side have already signed Loris Karius, Joel Matip, Sadio Mane and Marko Grujic. With the exception of Matip and Mane, none could really be labelled as established players. They, however, have a lot of potential.
But as we have seen with Arsenal over the years, potential rarely wins you titles—experience is also fundamental. Keeping that in mind, Klopp has to do some more work in the transfer window and here are 5 players that he should sign in order to strengthen Liverpool’s bid for a top four finish…
1) Ragnar Klavan
This signing makes sense. As Liverpool go into the season with only two quality center-backs––Joel Matip and Mamadou Sakho––that could be labelled as reliable, it would be an absolute risk to keep it that way. While Dejan Lovren would provide good cover for the aforementioned two, his inconsistency has often hurt Liverpool in crunch moments.
Ragnar Klavan is all but set to join Liverpool for a fee of a mere £4.3 million. If you are looking for a world class defender, look away. If, however, you are looking for a stable defender who is not prone to making mistakes like Lovren, then he is your man.
At 30 years old, he doesn’t represent Liverpool’s long-term interest—and that is a good thing. With tons of experience, he could become a teacher to the younger players, especially the highly talented 19-year-old, Joe Gomez.
Also, he can play at left-back if needed.
