Liverpool “intend to go big” in the transfer window next summer.
What’s the word?
The insider claims that a big summer spending spree “makes sense” given their stuttering start to the Premier League season.
Speaking to GIVEMESPORT, Jones said:
“I have heard that Liverpool intend to go big next summer if the right profile of player is there for them. I mean, it obviously makes sense given the start to the season they’ve had and the flaws that are starting to creep into this squad.”
A much-needed spend
With just 13 points on the board from nine Premier League games, it’s fair to say that things have not gone well for Liverpool in the league this season.
It says a lot that the Reds find themselves in eighth place, even after overcoming Champions Manchester City, in what made for an established and esteemed performance from Jurgen Klopp’s men.
It was another sign of the German boss’ brilliance at the Liverpool helm, getting the best out of an injury hit line-up that was by far a weaker side on paper in comparison to the squad at Pep Guardiola’s disposal.
But whilst it emphasised Klopp’s brilliance, it again highlighted Liverpool’s need to rework the side.
As steady as they were on the day, James Milner and Harvey Elliott were two notable inclusions that a team of Liverpool’s stature should not be relying on in a must-win game against the Premier League title favourites.
Investment is needed and could genuinely take Liverpool to that next level once more under Klopp’s glowing guidance.
Having somewhat ‘made-do’ with his squad over the past couple of seasons, investment in a couple of key signings would be much deserved from the Liverpool boss’ point of view.
As per The Athletic, Jude Bellingham is a player that the Reds are said to be keen on.
With Declan Rice also mooted as a target, with Football Insider’s report suggesting that Klopp is a big fan of the Hammers captain.
