Liverpool spent a large amount of money last summer to bring in some new players and all these signings have paid dividend in the form of the Champions League title.

But Jurgen Klopp has made it clear that he does not intend to make any high profile signings this summer since he has a perfectly balanced squad going into the new season.

While most fans agree with the fact that Liverpool should be spending heavily two seasons in a row but Joe Cole believes they should be out in the market in order to try and sign a particular style of player.

Speaking to talkSPORT, Cole has revealed that Liverpool should sign someone like John O’Shea – the former Man United man.

He said: “You’ve got to give massive credit to Jurgen Klopp for the way he assembled that team, and the mountains they climbed to be champions of Europe.

“There is nothing glaring in Liverpool’s side where you think they need that to get to the next level because they are strong everywhere.

“But I think maybe if there was an opportunity to bring someone in just to keep that rolling within the club.

“But maybe Klopp has not seen anyone who fits the character of his team.

“You don’t win titles when it’s that tight with just your first XI; there will be games when [Jordan] Henderson has to come out the team, whether because of injury or suspension or something. So who is going to do Henderson’s role?

“If [Virgil] van Dijk was to come out the game for a few weeks…

“They just need someone who could come into the team and fill different roles.

“Someone like at Manchester United, who had John O’Shea. What a great player he was, playing at left-back, right-back, centre-half, central midfielder.

“It’s a player you can rely on just to strengthen the squad and keep it going. But for one reason or not Liverpool have not really added any senior players.”
