Liverpool seems to have a spending problem this transfer window, Markus Babbel has said. He recently revealed that it could be that Klopp hasn’t seen a player for him in the attacking department.
According to him, Liverpool is currently the only English club who can’t spend during the pandemic while rivals keep splashing the cash to boost their teams every week.
Babbel added that he feels there is still enough quality at Anfield for the club to challenge for the EPL title this season.
His words, “For me, the problem is that Liverpool looks like the only English club who have a pandemic spending problem.”
“Chelsea wants to spend £150 million ($208m) for Haaland, Manchester City want to spend a lot of money on players, but Liverpool is the only club looking at the money situation.”
“If a player is available and it isn’t crazy money, then they will do something. I’m not sure if Jurgen Klopp is 100% sure there is a player for Liverpool, but there is a situation up front where these players need to fight for their place.”
“The problem last season was that everyone knew they were playing, whether they played well or not.”
“Mo Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane all need pressure putting on them. Diogo Jota brought something different, and he ended up being the best striker and was unlucky to get injured.”
“He was the best forward by far, but when you look at Liverpool, they had a lot of injuries in every position which didn’t help. Once they all come back, I’m sure they will fight for the title next season.”
“Firmino is a hard-working player, and he isn’t scoring too many goals, but Salah and normally Mane will score those goals.”
“Firmino is working for them as well, Mo Salah cannot score 20, 30 goals unless someone is working for him, which Firmino is doing. He is a different type of striker and he’s done a fantastic job allowing Salah and Mane the space to score goals.”
“It’s similar to Emile Heskey when he was playing with Michael Owen, Emile wasn’t scoring many goals, but Michael was because Emile was so hard working.”
