5 Last-Second Signings Liverpool Should Consider


Most Liverpool fans have expressed their frustration in social media because the team hasn't made any big-name signings this summer after winning the UEFA Champions League.

Other than re-signing Divock Origi, bringing back home Harry Wilson and signing Harvey Elliott and Sepp van den Berg, the Reds have been quiet for most of this transfer window.

However, as the August 8 deadline quickly approaches, some people still think Jurgen Klopp and the Reds are in line to make a couple of signings. Therefore, we'll talk about 5 young players that could help them strengthen their team ahead of next season:

5. Steven Bergwijn

Steven Bergwijn

Steven Bergwijn was PSV Eindhoven's best player last season, scoring 15 goals to go along with 13 assists in 41 caps for the Dutch side, and he was already linked with a potential move to Anfield.

Bergwijn is a tailor-made player for Jurgen Klopp's system. He can play in both flanks of the pitch as a winger, or even behind the striker or as a false 9, the same way Roberto Firmino does.

Adding this 21-year-old promising player would provide a much-needed depth up front for the Reds, who now have Xherdan Shaqiri, Adam Lallana, and Divock Origi as their backup options, but none of them have been very consistent over the years.

4. Mathias Ginter

Mathias Ginter

Jurgen Klopp already knows Mathias Ginter from his Borussia Dortmund spell, and he's improved a lot since completing his move to Borussia Monchengladbach, even receiving calls to join Germany's national team.

The Reds made a great move when they signed Virgil van Dijk from Southampton but they could still use more help on their defense, and considering Klopp trusts youngsters like Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joe Gomez, and Andrew Robertson, Ginter could have a spot on his team at 25-years-old as well.

Ginter rarely makes mistakes, is good at taking the ball upfield with his feet and checks all the boxes of a solid defender, even if he may never end up becoming a superstar like van Dijk.

3. Raphael Guerreiro

Raphael Guerreiro

Raphael Guerreiro's contract with Borussia Dortmund will expire in 2020, so the Reds could try and make a move for him right now to make the most of that opportunity.

Liverpool are craving versatile players right now and Guerreiro is as versatile as they come. He can play on any sector of the midfield, as a winger, or even as a left-back.

The Reds need a backup for Robertson and Guerreiro would give them a dynamic player with no true flaws on his game that could contribute to multiple aspects of the game.

2. Jonathan Tah

Jonathan Tah

Signing Virgil van Dijk and Alisson Becker was great for Liverpool, but now they need a complementary center-back to take some pressure off of van Dijk's shoulders, and that man should be Jonathan Tah.

Tah is a physically gifted 23-year-old center-back that can outjump, outrun and outhustle most strikers in the world despite his weight and size.

Joel Matip and Dejan Lovren have been solid for Klopp's team, but both of them have struggled with inconsistency and haven't been reliable through long stretches of the season, and Tah would be a great insurance policy for the Reds.

1. Ryan Sessegnon

Ryan Sessegnon

Andrew Robertson has been outstanding for Liverpool, but they still need to add more depth at the left-back spot with no true replacement for him right now.

Therefore, they could out-bid Tottenham Hotspur to sign Fulham's Ryan Sessegnon, who could also play as a right-back or even as a winger or midfielder.

Sessegnon is very versatile and has just turned 19 years old so he could be a major piece of Liverpool's project going forward, even if he still needs a bit of polishing in defense.
