David Moyes has suggested that Tottenham duo Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen could improve the Liverpool squad and give them a better chance of challenging Manchester City for the Premier League title.
Kane, 26, scored 24 goals in 40 appearances across all competitions for Spurs last season while Eriksen, 27, scored 10 and supplied 17 assists in his 51 total outings.
Both are players who ex-Manchester United and Everton boss Moyes believes might improve Liverpool’s starting line-up.
“I was trying to think the other day if you could make a Premier League team up from all the other teams to topple Manchester City to win the league,” Moyes told talkSPORT on Tuesday [07:34am].
“I think it would be very tough, even if you had a team that included all the top players in it.”
Moyes added: “Well the Liverpool front three are three Ferraris. Maybe Harry Kane. I think Kane’s a top centre-forward who could maybe squeeze in.
“If you’ve got an Eriksen, for example, or someone similar… You have to remember that Liverpool have tried to improve their midfield.
“They might still be lacking someone with a real top-level of flair who could maybe make the key pass.”
If there is one area of this Liverpool squad that could be improved, it is definitely in the midfield. While it is hard to pick flaws in a team that won the Champions League title last season, pretty much every fan would agree that the defence and attack should not be touched and it’s the midfield that Jurgen Klopp should improve if he gets the chance. Klopp didn’t sign any senior players in the summer transfer window but if he did, it would be someone who’d be an upgrade on the likes of Jordan Henderson, Georginio Wijnaldum, Naby Keita or Fabinho. All of them are very good, top-class players who deserved to win their Champions League winners medals. However there are central midfielders out there who are a lot better than them and Eriksen is one of them. The Denmark international is in the final year of his contract so who knows what the future holds for the playmaker.
