Liverpool would be able to match Manchester City’s squad depth if they completed moves for Nabil Fekir and Nicolas Pepe.
The Reds won the Champions League this season but it’s known that they will now do all they can to win the Premier League next season for the first time in the club’s history.
Liverpool owner John W. Henry told Sky Sports that even winning Europe’s biggest trophy won’t make up for the disappointment of missing out on the Premier League.
Jurgen Klopp’ side finished the season on 97 points – the highest tally in the club’s history – and still did not win the title but after another summer of investment, they will go again.
Man City’s greatest strength aside from the brilliance of Pep Guardiola is their ability to rotate their front six without losing much quality.
Signing Nabil Fekir and Nicolas Pepe – two attack-minded names that have been linked with moves to Liverpool – would provide Klopp with a similar ability to change his attack when necessary and not suffer the consequences.
While Divock Origi has done well to show his worth this season, there is a concern among that he might not be able to maintain the level that he displayed when called upon over the last five months.
Having someone like Pepe, who L’Equipe claim is a target for Liverpool, would add goals to the bench while Fekir, who Vincent Duluc says is on the club’s radar, would be able to produce moments of magic in central areas.
Together they would cost a combined £84.1 but would further Liverpool’s claim to the Premier League title.
