'Absolutely outstanding': Gary Neville amazed by five signings Jurgen Klopp has made at Liverpool

Gary Neville has singled out five ‘outstanding’ Liverpool signings and urged FSG to back Jurgen Klopp this summer.

Speaking on the Gary Neville podcast, the Sky Sports pundit suggested that Liverpool need to dig deep to ensure that Klopp has the quality required to challenge next season.

Liverpool are in the top four fight all of a sudden, but that shouldn’t paper over the cracks.

This campaign has largely been a disappointment and many of the current squad seem to have gone beyond their peaks.

It is clear that Liverpool need to renovate their starting line-up this term.

And Neville feels like Klopp has earned financial backing from FSG through his transfer record over the years. 

Neville mentioned the signings of Diogo Jota, Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, Andy Robertson and Fabinho as particular bargains and suggested that it will be imperative that they pick up a few more value-for-money additions this summer. 

“Jurgen Klopp has to be supported,” he said.

“He was supported a number of years ago when they fell short, in terms of being able to push themselves in the transfer market. They are going to have to go there again this summer because all the other teams are going to invest.

“Klopp’s strength over the last six or seven years has been the quality of his football and the strength of his recruitment and he’s been able to get the most out of players, who ultimately haven’t cost stupid amounts – Van Dijk, Alisson and Nunez aside. 

“But you look at those players who have cost £20 or £30 million, like Jota, Salah, Mane, there are more, Robertson, they have been absolutely outstanding, Fabinho, they have been wonderful for Liverpool.

“They are going to have to do more of that but they are going to have to put some serious money down and get some players for Klopp, he deserves that at Liverpool.”

An exciting Liverpool summer?

Liverpool are already being linked with a huge range of players going into the summer.

Upgrading in central midfield will be most pivotal, as it is arguably the area of the squad which has caused Klopp the most issues this year.

Already Jude Bellingham appears to be beyond FSG’s budget, but it does seem that other additions are being lined up.

Alexis MacAllister, who is slightly cheaper, and Mason Mount are the latest pair who seem to be most strongly linked.

Both would inject some energy and youth into this Liverpool team, which could be badly needed next term, when Klopp will want this side to get back into title contention once again.
