Liverpool recently secured the services of highly-rated Fulham youngster Harvey Elliott.
Tony Cascarino has claimed that Liverpool will sign two players this summer as he predicted for them to ‘make a steal’ on a player before the transfer window slams shut on August 8.
The Reds have added new players to their squad this summer in highly-rated youngsters Harvey Elliott and Sepp van den Berg, but they are yet to purchase a player that will seriously challenge for the first-team ahead of the new campaign.
Added with that, pre-season isn’t exactly going to plan for Liverpool, which has added some negativity to their summer, with Jurgen Klopp guiding the club to their sixth European crown in June.
Speaking to Weekend Sports Breakfast on TalkSport (27/07/2019 at 10:30 am), former Aston Villa striker Cascarino expects Liverpool to bring in new faces before deadline day.
“As much as Liverpool are very, very quiet, I still think they will make a signing or maybe two,” Cascarino told TalkSport. “I don’t think they will go through this whole window with not really bringing in any players.
“Okay, they have some exciting youngsters coming through such as Brewster. But Liverpool will get through it because there squads getting better and bigger.
“As we get to the final day, there are clubs waiting in the wings. Sometimes out of nowhere people become available. The vultures that these clubs are, once they see a move that’s possible because Liverpool standards are very high. Where they are now, they are competing for really good footballers. They might make a steal on someone.”
Liverpool could do nothing more in their Premier League title race with Manchester City last season, but they simply couldn’t match the relentless nature of Pep Guardiola’s side and the squad depth they had at their disposal.
It remains to be seen whether Liverpool will dip into the transfer market and if they do then they’ll need a left-back and perhaps more depth in the final third.
