'Liverpool Can't Afford To Do It' - Robbie Fowler Reveals His Concerns For Klopp's Side

'Liverpool Can't Afford To Do It' - Robbie Fowler Reveals His Concerns For Klopp's Side

Robbie Fowler has expressed his concern if Liverpool don’t dip into the transfer market more this window.

Robbie Fowler has revealed he would be concerned if Liverpool don’t dip into the transfer market again this window.

The Reds all-time highest Premier League goalscorer believes that as the club has sold key players and only replaced them, instead of signing strength in depth.

Speaking to Bettingexpert, the 47-year-old, who recently managed East Bengal in the Indian Super League, said:

“It is funny actually when you talk about Liverpool. One of Liverpool’s problems over the years was they never had the depth, they never had the squad to compete on every level.

"All of a sudden they got that squad to compete at every level. People would say, maybe we don’t need to play that many games"

"I don’t get that, I really don’t because we want them to compete at every level."

"There are a few options for certain players, we don’t know whether they want to keep them or not."

“I don’t want Liverpool to be in the same boat they’ve been in a few years ago when the squad wasn’t great."

"Don’t get me wrong, the first eleven now would be brilliant, but when you start getting rid of maybe three or four players, the squad is not as strong as it was."

“So then you maybe go back to the level it was maybe a few years ago. And I don’t think Liverpool can afford to do that now, because they’ve worked so hard, and they did so well to get where they are.

"And I don’t want to see that stop, I want them to sign more players."

"Who else they will sign I don’t know, will they wait another year to bring another midfielder in, time will tell."

"Football is seeing a lot of teams in precarious positions because if you are not signing players, you are not necessarily standing still, you are going backwards, because teams will sign players.”

Liverpool have been rumoured to be keen on adding a midfielder and another right-sided forward in this window, with Jude Bellingham a constant in most transfer rumour mills.

However, the wide consensus is that they will continue as they are, potentially even thinning the squad further.

Naby Keita, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, James Milner, Adrian and Roberto Firmino are now officially into their final year, so the club will need to sort their affairs out whilst also thinking about future additions.
