Liverpool have a transfer issue, according to Gary Neville

For once, he actually has a point. Gary Neville was speaking about the problem that Liverpool have in the transfer market, when it comes to attracting forward players.

Liverpool fans were appalled during the summer transfer window that the club weren't in for the likes of Nicolas Pepe, Paulo Dybala, etc. but there may be other factors at play.

Consider the reason that Harry Wilson didn't want to take his chances at Anfield again this season - he wanted regular first-team football. Not bits and pieces of games when Roberto Firmino, Mo Salah or Sadio Mane need a rest or the match is already won.

So for Neville, that's where Liverpool have a problem in the market. He told Sky Sports: "Who’s going to come in as a striker at Liverpool?

"If you’re Liverpool wanting to spend £75million on an attacker or a forward, those front three that are there now aren’t going to be happy sitting on the bench, so you’re going to have to ****** them off right away and the guy coming in for £75million isn’t gonna sit on the bench, so you’re gonna have a bit of a problem.

"In the late 2000s, late 90s, with Beckham, Scholes, Keane and Giggs, they were too good, so anyone that came in was never going to get in, they were unbelievable.

"You couldn’t break that, you couldn’t break that four, so when Veron signed, he was always going to fail cause those four were set in stone.

"So that’s the thing if Liverpool did invest now, £75 million, they’ve got a really great front three that they can’t probably refresh at this time as no one will come in, they’ll just look at it, as if you’re a striker from Barcelona or another club in Europe looking at Liverpool, you’ll think I’m not going there I won’t get in."
