Former Liverpool player Charlie Adam thinks that the club is a player or two short of the Premier League title. Liverpool have done a lot of work in the transfer window, having signed Naby Keita, Fabinho, Xherdan Shaqiri and most recently Alisson. The Stoke City midfielder thinks that The Reds need to sign another defender.
Adam said, “Liverpool have done excellent business so far. Liverpool are one or two players from the title. He [Klopp] has added quality to the squad, I still think they could do with another centre-half. They have brought Shaqiri in, a good replacement if Mohamed Salah needs a rest. Daniel Sturridge is to come back in – if he stays fit he could be in that team as well.
The goalkeeper situation was a big problem for them last season. He has seen that problem and got that deal done. He [Alisson] is going to be worth six to eight points over the season. It adds a total belief and confidence”
Charlie Adam also added that Xherdan Shaqiri (his former teammate at Stoke) might get frustrated if he spends too much time on the bench. Adam said, “He’s got to try and replace Salah, the best player in the Premier League and has a chance for the Ballon d’Or.It’s only going to last six months and he won’t be happy sitting on bench. He’ll want to play in the bigger games.
