Liverpool need 'a new centre-back, central midfielder and striker' - Riise

Former Liverpool striker Robbie Fowler believes his former club are on the cusp of something big under Klopp.

As Virgil van Dijk's transfer saga took a strange twist today, Shaka Hislop doesn't understand Liverpool's odd statement.
Amid Southampton's request to investigate Liverpool over an alleged illegal approach to Virgil van Dijk, Steve Nicol hits back at Saints and says they have no reason to complain.

SINGAPORE -- John Arne Riise says Liverpool need to make some major summer signings to be ready to play in the Champions League, and the club might be better without Daniel Sturridge.

Jurgen Klopp's side confirmed a return to Europe on the final day of the Premier League season, and Riise thinks they need more strength in depth.

"We need a new centre-back, a new central midfielder and a new striker who can score 25 goals a season," Riise, speaking ahead of the Liverpool vs. Arsenal Masters event, said. "We have [Roberto] Firmino and [Philippe] Coutinho but we don't have a proper No. 9.

"Daniel Sturridge is a good player but he probably does not fit Klopp's style, so it may be good for him to move on.

"Last season [Liverpool] were close to the top at Christmas but lost three to four games thereafter. It shows that we don't have a big enough squad."
