Doing nothing in the transfer window has surprised former Liverpool player, Ray Houghton, as he recently said that should not be the case.
Daniel Sturridge and Alberto Moreno left the club at the end of their respective contracts, while Simon Mignolet has joined his native Belgium at Club Brugge.
Liverpool recently signed ex West Ham goalkeeper, Adrian but teenagers Harvey Elliott and Sepp van den Berg have been the only other additions.
Ray said a team that only just missed out on the EPL is currently leaving themselves exposed to the danger of lacking depth in the squad.
His words, “I don’t know the reason behind it.
“I think the manager has been brilliant in previous seasons because he has got them in really early.
“I remember when [Sadio] Mane first came in from Southampton – I did one of the pre-season games and the manager was constantly on the sidelines getting back into position and he did it two seasons ago with [Mohamed] Salah and he didn’t really know what was going on.
“Coming from Roma and being at Chelsea, I think he was given bit more of a license to go and express himself whereas at Liverpool the manager was constantly on him trying to get him back into position and the same last season with Fabinho and Alisson.
“So he’s always went out there and brought in the right player at the right time, just this time around I’m slightly surprised Liverpool haven’t gone out there and brought in one or two more additions just to improve the squad.”
“Because don’t forget, there’s a few who have left. Moreno has gone, Sturridge has gone amongst others, so you have depleted the squad and I think you have to add to that.
“But if you’re going to be competing to win the league again this season, you’ve got to show that consistency.”
