Liverpool are way behind other Premier League teams in terms of transfer and needs to close the gap. The Reds had a quiet winter transfer market despite their on-field struggles this season.
Liverpool are having a rough time this season, as things are not working out for them. The Reds are struggling on the pitch, with results not going their way, yet they have not tried to stem the tide. The club needs goals, creators and must find a way to stem the tide of conceded goals. Despite the problems bedeviling the club, there has been an eerie silence about addressing the situation.
While clubs like Chelsea and Arsenal have been active in the market, recruiting players to shore up various positions in the team, Liverpool has been quiet. The Reds made only one signing during the winter transfer window. They signed Cody Gakpo, who had a solid World Cup debut with the Netherlands, but since his arrival at Anfield, he is yet to find the back of the net.
It seems the train has left Liverpool behind. It shows in their performance this season. Their position on the table also shows that the squad needs refreshing. The Reds need a decent amount of investment to start competing again, and their owners FSG have been issued an ultimatum to invest big or go home.
Liverpool owners have been tight with their purse in the winter transfer window. It is despite their poor showing this term. The club is way behind their rivals and needs to do something to level up.
Liverpool signed Darwin Núñez, Cody Gakpo, Fábio Carvalho, Calvin Ramsay and Arthur Melo for a combined fee of €137m.
Liverpool owners FSG have been advised to go big or go home. They need a £200 million summer spending spree to compete in the Premier League.
Simon Jordan has advised the club that it is time to lose the purse strings and go big in the summer. According to the businessman and former Crystal Palace owner, Liverpool needs to shell out £200 million in the summer.
Jordan, a host on talkSPORT, was commenting on the Fenway Sports Group’s [FSG] management of the Reds following a quiet transfer window. The only winter signing for Liverpool, Gakpo, who arrived at Anfield in the winter for £37m, is yet to find his scoring boots. The slow winter by Liverpool comes off the back of a midfield crisis and injuries in defence.
Liverpool are well behind rivals Arsenal and Chelsea, with their hopes of finishing in the top four diminishing steadily. The Reds are in ninth place in the league, above tenth-place Chelsea, but they need more than the tactical acumen of Jurgen Klopp to turn things around.
According to Jordan, FSG must decide to pee or get off the pot. They will have to go big or go home.
The talkSPORT host claims other teams are stepping up to the situation around how much they have to spend, and Liverpool must join the party.
They face the challenge of their rivals Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea, who are all going to spend in the summer window. Liverpool does not necessarily need to go pound for pound with them, but they need to make changes to the squad.
Liverpool are ten points off a top-four finish, and it is dicey that Bellingham would join the club in the summer. Without the Champions League, their chances of attracting the top names are remote.
Jordan has advised FSG they will have to regenerate, and if £140m goes in one direction, Bellingham would be a massive regeneration for Liverpool.
Jordan concludes that Liverpool needs to spend more than £200 million next summer.
