Former Marseille and Republic of Ireland striker Tony Cascarino believes Liverpool may yet make a couple of signings before the transfer window closes.
The Reds have recruited just two youngsters in Sepp van den Berg and Harvey Elliott this summer, leaving many fans worried about the lack of depth in Jurgen Klopp’s squad.
Cascarino thinks Liverpool could still bring in some players if the right ones become available:
“As much as Liverpool are very, very quiet, I still think they will make a signing or maybe two. I don’t think they will go through this whole window with not really bringing in any players.”
“Okay, they have some exciting youngsters coming through such as [Rhian] Brewster. But Liverpool will get through it because there squads getting better and bigger.”
“As we get to the final day, there are clubs waiting in the wings. Sometimes out of nowhere people become available. The vultures that these clubs are, once they see a move that’s possible because Liverpool standards are very high.”
“Where they are now, they are competing for really good footballers. They might make a steal on someone.”
With just nine days to go before the window slams shut, it is looking more and more likely that the Merseyside club won’t make a single high profile signing.
It is surprising considering the club don’t have a recognised back up for Andy Robertson at left-back, while they also lost Daniel Sturridge this summer.
Klopp is backing some of his young players to step up to the plate but it is a gamble when the Reds have ambitions of winning the Premier League title this season.
