Loads of Liverpool fans have been giving their verdict on the transfer window, and plenty of them feel they’ve missed a trick by not signing another central midfielder.
Liverpool had one hell of a summer, securing deals for world class stars like Alisson Becker and Naby Keita, while adding the depth they sorely lacked in attack with Xherdan Shaqiri.
However, the extent of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s injury actually leaves the Reds a little light in midfield.
Fabinho and Keita have both come in, but the departures of Emre Can and Philippe Coutinho along with Oxalde-Chamberlain’s injury means Jürgen Klopp has one less midfielder than he started 2018 with.
Nabil Fekir was all set to join Klopp’s revolution before the World Cup, but since the deal fell through there have been no signs of alternative targets.
Fans are delighted with the business they’ve done, but they can’t shake the feeling that Klopp will regret not signing another central midfielder.

This summer we've wrapped up deals for Fabinho, Xherdan Shaqiri and Alisson Becker. The leg work for Naby Keita was done last summer. As brilliant as they all are, those three signings and four arrivals don't quite feel like enough.

Haven’t added to depth
Haven’t signed a PC replacement
Not a class window as everyone is making out

I just can’t honestly believe that the club don’t recognise this. Pretty clear Fekir is dead now but why on earth would they target that position specifically, especially given the injury to Ox, then decide they had enough after all when deal fell through. Why bother in 1st place

It definitely isn’t, some fans think it is though ffs we are competing against possibly the greatest PL team in history, we have to COMPETE.

Agree.. theres no depth at all.. city could play 2 whole different teams and both could do a job

#LFC @LFC Considering the money available and both Can&Coutinho leaving it’s not enough and we’re going to be that couple of quality players short once again but this time there’s no excuses!! But now we’re done all we can do is get behind the team and just prey 🙏🏽 no injuries

Yeah just feels like a missed opportunity to really push on for the title. For all the great work done it just feels we are still a little bit short

4/10. Disastrous window. Still no Coutinho replacement. Keita signed last summer. Only Alisson bought in as improvement.
