Window Shopping: Liverpool FC
Share This Article:
In our new feature, we're taking a look at what every Premier League club needs in January to cement their season ambitions, whether that is challenging for the Premier League crown, or clinging to the ladder of survival come May 2019. Our second article, and aptly in second place at time of writing is Liverpool. Summer Review: After a disappointing end to an otherwise stunning season, Jurgen Klopp was promised backing by his board and they delivered. Although a protracted saga with Nabil Fekir saw the French maverick stay at Lyon, the bombastic German seemingly added four quality players to his ranks: Alisson from Roma, Keita from RB Leipzig, Fabinho from AS Monaco and Xherdan Shaqiri from relegated Stoke. While the Swiss has proved to be a bargain, Fabinho has struggled to settle in England, being solid if not spectacular so far, the same said of Naby Keita who joined from RB Leipzig. Two-week-long-world-record-fee goalkeeping signing Alisson has also been a mixed bag, keeping a number of clean sheets, but also being culpable for several goals due to poor mistakes. The only big name out was Emre Can, joining Juventus on a free - a move totally overshadowed by a certain Portuguese's arrival in Turin. Who comes in? Liverpool have built a solid squad this season, but Jurgen Klopp will spend money if it is available. First and foremost, rumours of a proper No. 10 continue to swirl with Nabil Fekir's name referenced often, but alternatively, they might look for a winger such as Christian Pulisic to bolster their incredibly strong front line. Expect an experienced back-up goalkeeper to also be on Klopp's shopping list.
