After a heart-breaking loss in the Champions League Final, Klopp and Liverpool are already back to work. By that, I mean bringing in new players to help this team to be even more successful. A couple of days ago I wrote a blog about the Champions League Final and there is something that I left out that will be the main focus of this blog and it showed in that game. Liverpool desperately needed depth. Real Madrid won that game with their depth. When a team can bring on players like Bale and Nacho who can be just as good or better than your starting players, it is really tough for a team to stop them in those final 30 to 40 minutes.
This leads us to Liverpool. When Salah was injured, they brought on Adam Lallana and if you were watching the game, you could tell that he just was not a player that could come on and make a great impact on the game. I am not saying that Liverpool has the money or ability to bring in the amount of quality players where Gareth Bale will even have to be debated whether he should start or not; however, Liverpool bringing in Fabinho is a great start. Fabinho has been very good for AS Monaco these last couple years and is looking to be a starter for Brazil’s team in Russia. For Liverpool, the addition of Fabinho and Keita (who was bought in the winter, but is coming now) give them a midfield that now has a decent amount of depth. I would assume that both Keita and Fabinho will start because they have both been fantastic for their last clubs; this means that players like Henderson and Wijnaldum become great depth players. Plus, there have been rumors that Klopp is also looking to bring in a young French winger, Lemar, who has showed tons of promise in Ligue 1.
Liverpool has been doing a lot of things right over this past year and it seems that trend will continue with the purchases they make as a club this summer.
