Liverpool’s next transfer is ready as five questions remain after Dominik Szoboszlai

Too many question marks remain to justify turning attention to the transfer elsewhere

Paul Gorst: Having seen their midfield crumble due to form and fitness issues last term, the big question for Liverpool this summer has been how many additions constitute an acceptable rebuild?

With James Milner, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Naby Keita now officially out of the wage bill and Arthur Melo back at Juventus after an ill-fated loan spell, there has been much debate about how many players the Reds need to adequately restructure their engine room.

With Alexis Mac Allister and Dominik Szoboszlai now both through the door, Liverpool need a third to really bolster that department or will they need to use what’s left of the transfer kit, someone who doesn’t have the luxury of the Champions League shot, to rebuild it , elsewhere?

Should a centre-back now be targeted or do the Reds still need another midfielder to ensure the problems that dogged them last term are over for good? These are the relevant questions Jurgen Klopp will now wrestle with.

For my money, I think a third midfielder would really see the midfield department rebuilt. While the arrival of a new player is always something of a relative unknown, there are too many other question marks already in the lineup to say that Mac Allister and Szoboszlai will be enough.
