Peterborough United Director of Football Barry Fry has told Football FanCast Liverpool only need three additions to challenge at the top end of the Premier League next season.
Jurgen Klopp’s side have struggled immensely at times this season.
The Reds drew 1-1 with Newcastle United at the weekend, as Joe Willock scored a last-gasp equaliser to snatch a point for Steve Bruce’s side.
The result has left the club sixth in the Premier League table, four points behind fourth-placed Chelsea, who beat top-four rivals West Ham United on Saturday.
They are 23 points behind leaders Manchester City, a staggering climbdown from last season, when the Reds dropped points in just six games.
The result versus Newcastle means Liverpool have dropped points in 18 games, drawing nine and losing nine.
But Fry believes that the club only have to be active in the transfer window to climb back to where they were last term.
Speaking exclusively to FFC, he said: “I think all Liverpool players have played below the standards they’ve set themselves over the last two years but they’ve had two unbelievable, outstanding years, so they’ve all fallen short of that but I still feel with three or four additions they’ll be challenging for all the things next season.”
Liverpool will not be winning a trophy this season, having been eliminated from the Champions League and the FA Cup, while City won the League Cup over the weekend.
