It is transfer window time, silly season if you will, and thus former Liverpool striker Stan Collymore has got in on the madness and has urged his former club to sign Tottenham trio Dele Alli, Christian Eriksen and Toby Alderweireld.
We kid you not.!!! The Reds’ season ended in heartbreak on Saturday night as they fell at the final hurdle and succumbed to a 3-1 defeat to Real Madrid in Kiev in the Champions League final.
Jürgen Klöpp’s men started on top but their attacking threat came crashing down after Mohamed Salah was forced off injured after just half an hour following an awkward clash with Sergio Ramos.
Former pro turned radio presenter Collymore pointed to a lack of strength in depth and wants Liverpool owners Fenway Sports Group to back Klopp in the transfer market with an audacious triple swoop.
Writing in his column for the Daily Mirror Collymore said: “For all of their promise in the second half of this season, Liverpool do not have the strength in depth of their two great rivals.If the Reds are to close the gap, they need genuine A-listers as back-up. And I believe now is the time to strike.
He added: “By reaching two European finals in three seasons, Klopp has shown he can manage. And now FSG have to demonstrate their commitment too by using the £75m-plus generated by this run and back their man in the transfer market.I am not talking about signing the likes of Andy Robertson – as good as he has been.
He went on to say: “I am talking about wandering into White Hart Lane, plonking £150m on the table in front of Daniel Levy and saying: ‘I’ll give you that for Christian Eriksen, Toby Alderweireld and Dele Alli.I would still like the owners to give the green light for three or four marquee signings.”
