Liverpool legend doubts their Premier League title credentials

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp hasn’t made enough signings to challenge for the Premier League or Champions League this season, according to Graeme Souness.

The Reds have spent £44million on Mohamed Salah and Andrew Robertson but Klopp has found it hard to get other signings over the line this summer and they could struggle with their squad size.

And Graeme Souness thinks they will struggle to win the Premier League “with or without” Philippe Coutinho, who has reportedly been the subject of a £90million bid from Barcelona.

Writing in his column for Sky Sports, he commented: “I don’t think he’s made enough signings to challenge in the big two competitions next season and if they lose Philippe Coutinho, they’ll get an enormous figure for him, but at this point of the window, they’ll probably end up spending a lot of money on someone they are not sure about to replace him.

“They have to fight to try and keep the player but ultimately the player will decide and for a Latin-American player, Barcelona will always be the place to go.

“I think Klopp needs to make sure Liverpool challenge for the Premier League next season. I think that – alongside a run into the latter stages of the Champions League and one of the domestic cups – would be a good season for him.

“But I can’t see them winning the Champions League or the Premier League, with or without Coutinho.”
