Liverpool are ‘one or two’ signings from winning the Premier League

Former Liverpool midfielder Charlie Adam believes the Reds are only “one or two players” short of having a team capable of winning the Premier League.

The Reds are hot favourites to push Manchester City to the wire ahead of the new season, with Jurgen Klopp spending a whopping £170m+ this summer as well as a further £75m in January on making Virgil van Dijk the world’s most expensive defender.

The signings they have made so far have given Liverpool a real boost in terms of confidence, with the squad being stacked with genuinely world class stars now.

But even though Adam has hailed the signings made by Klopp so far this summer, he still believes that they are one or two more signings off being title winners.

“Liverpool have done excellent business so far,” he told BBC Radio 5 live.

“Liverpool are one or two players from the title. He [Klopp] has added quality to the squad, I still think they could do with another centre-half.”

“They have brought Shaqiri in, a good replacement if Mohamed Salah needs a rest. Daniel Sturridge is to come back in – if he stays fit he could be in that team as well.

“The goalkeeper situation was a big problem for them last season. He has seen that problem and got that deal done.

“He [Alisson] is going to be worth six to eight points over the season. It adds a total belief and confidence.”
