Liverpool tipped to make two big signings before window shuts

Tony Cascarino believes Liverpool could yet make two significant signings before the transfer window shuts in nine days’ time, despite Jurgen Klopp playing down the Reds’ chances.

The Reds have had an extremely quiet summer so far, with only teenagers Sepp van den Berg and Harvey Elliott arriving at the home of the European champions.

Liverpool were once again linked with a late foray to sign Barcelona’s Ousmane Dembele on Tuesday, while our readers have suggested the Reds target a young Fulham star before the window shuts.

And while Klopp has openly admitted the club has not given up hope of making a significant splash before the window shuts, the Reds boss has downplayed their chances by saying finding the right kind of player is proving extremely difficult.

However, Cascarino still thinks they could pull a rabbit or two out of the hat if the right deals become available before the deadline a week on Thursday.

“As much as Liverpool are very, very quiet, I still think they will make a signing or maybe two,” Cascarino told talkSPORT.

“I don’t think they will go through this whole window with not really bringing in any players.

“Okay, they have some exciting youngsters coming through such as [Rhian] Brewster. But Liverpool will get through it because there squads getting better and bigger.

“As we get to the final day, there are clubs waiting in the wings. Sometimes out of nowhere people become available.

“The vultures that these clubs are, once they see a move that’s possible because Liverpool standards are very high.

“Where they are now, they are competing for really good footballers. They might make a steal on someone.”
