Liverpool were one of the Premier League’s big spenders this summer, but who was their best signing of the summer?
Liverpool fell just short of silverware last season, and plenty would argue that the lack of squad depth is what really hurt them in Kiev.
Adam Lallana, who isn’t even a winger, was introduced when Mohamed Salah went off injured, and the midfield ranks were extremely thin after the injury to Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

The signing of Shaqiri went slightly under the radar due to the huge fees splashed out on the other three signings, but fans have been crying out for some depth on the wings.

Liverpool’s pursuit of Keita was quite bizarre, as the Reds had to wait a year for their newest prized asset. The Guinean international seems tailor-made for Jürgen Klopp’s system, but he has not exactly had the perfect start. The 23 year-old was sensational in the season opener against West Ham, but has been in and out of the team since then.
This shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise, as fans voted overwhelmingly in favour of Alisson as their signing of the summer. The Brazilian has conceded just three times in eight Premier League games, a rate that will see him concede just 14 goals if that continues for the full 38 games. His speed, distribution skills, composure and incredible reflexes finally solve a problem that the Reds have had for over a decade.
