Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has been urged by external sources to make heavy investments into his current squad. The Reds are known for being very careful when it comes to spending money in the transfer window. However, after 68 matches unbeaten at Anfield, Jurgen Klopp’s men ended up losing 3 straight games at home. Burnley, Brighton and Hove Albion, and Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City were the three teams that secured wins at Anfield over the last three games. Pundits and former Premier League players like Jamie Carragher have stated that Liverpool will need to make heavy investments in order to stay at the top to maintain their status from the past couple of seasons.
Tottenham Hotspur legend Harry Kane has reportedly emerged as one major target for Liverpool. On the other hand, Manchester City are also heavily interested in the England star as a potential replacement for their club legend Sergio Aguero, who could be on his way to Barcelona in the summer, as many reports suggest. However now, it seems that the 6 times European Champions are looking to spend heavily in the transfer market and that the Spurs’ legend is one of their major targets in order to make reinforcements.
Klopp’s men were hit for 4 goals by Pep’s City on Sunday. This major defeat at Anfield now sees the men in Red 10 points behind table-toppers Manchester City, having played one game more. If City win their game in hand against Everton on the 18th of February, they will potentially be 13 points clear of the Champions. Harry Kane is reportedly a target for both Manchester City and Liverpool now, if the FSG do give Klopp the green light, he could very well go on to snatch the City target. As of now, Carragher and Stan Collymore are of the opinion that if Liverpool are to go toe to toe with City, they will need to spend lavishly in the transfer market.
