Nigel Reo-Coker has slammed Liverpool for missing out on Mohammed Kudus, who has joined West Ham in a £38m transfer.

Speaking on Radio 5 Live, the former Premier League star claimed that the Reds have had a poor window after spending over £100m on the likes Alexis Mac Allister, Dominik Szoboszlai and Wataru Endo.

Yet with Kudus now heading to West Ham, Reo-Coker has made the assumption that Liverpool have wasted funds and time this summer, with the forward linked with a move to Anfield.

Whilst Liverpool’s need for another attacker has never been less apparent, that hasn’t stopped Reo-Coker from launching an incredible criticism of what the Reds have done this window.

“You look at Liverpool and they have had a shocking window. For the club that they are and the players that are available on the market. You look at West Ham, getting Mohammed Kudus.

“That is a great buy there. Top talent from Europe. You look at Manchester City and Jeremy Doku. Liverpool have the ability to attract these players, but they haven’t been proactive.”

There’s no denying Kudus’ talent, with the Ghana international one of the most exciting attacking prospects in all of Europe and a player who could become one of the very best in the game.

However, with Liverpool in the market for midfielders and defenders, moving for Kudus would have made little sense this window, despite Reo-Coker’s comments.

Had a Luis Diaz or Mohamed Salah left, there would have been a reason for Liverpool to move for Kudus. Though given what has happen this summer, missing out on the youngster makes plenty of sense.
