Michael Mongie discusses who Liverpool should have signed during the summer transfer window.
The summer transfer window is a strange and dividing phenomena. From Paul Pogba’s controversially gargantuan transfer fee to Joe Hart’s move to Torino, there is something to the two-month transfer period which evades explanation.
While there may be very few things that escape description, some things never change. Liverpool in the transfer market, has become a predictable animal. A creature of habit, the Reds seem never to void from their natural way of doing things, which some would say is the wrong way of doing things.
Now, don’t get me wrong, I’m delighted with the signing of Joel Matip, Loris Karius and Sadio Mane, but I question whether or not Gini Wijnaldum is the type of player Liverpool should be buying. With rivals Chelsea, Manchester United and City signing hugely experienced players with bucket loads of world-class talent, I wonder how Liverpool can even compete without similar signings, much less covering the bare essentials.
There can be no excuse later in the season when the inevitable happens and Alberto Moreno costs Liverpool important points or even a cup game like he did on two separate occasions last season.
With that in mind, let’s jump straight in and discuss who Liverpool should have signed to automatically compete with the top sides in the league this season.
