‘We need quality imports’ Van Dijk admits Liverpool needs a summer OVERHAUL

March 16, 2023

Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk has admitted they need new players as they struggled in this campaign, and he expects the club to add new men to the squad in the summer.

The Reds almost won four trophies last season, but have been dismal in this campaign and are out of every single competition already.

They are also far from the top four, and finishing the season inside it now is a tough task, but they know they must bolster their squad in the summer to become competitive again.

Over the years, Jurgen Klopp’s men have been one of the best clubs in Europe and have been the only competitor to Manchester City in the Premier League.

However, their form this season has been shocking, and one does not have to look too far to see the reason they have struggled.

Liverpool has suffered the most injuries among the top clubs in England, and they have lost almost every single key player in the squad for an extended period because of a serious problem.

Naby Keita, Alex Oxlade Chamberlain, Roberto Firmino, and Joel Matip, among others, are all expected to leave the club at the end of the season, and Van Dijk admits it is obvious they need a rebuild.

He says via the Daily Mail: ‘Players are going to leave – that’s been announced so we have to (invest), if we want to be where we have been the last five years.

‘We need quality imports especially with those players leaving. I think that’s quite obvious.

‘But everyone knows that’s going to be very difficult to find the right players but the club has to do their job in this case. We still have a lot of games to play for us and we want to be in the Champions League. That will also help to attract the best players in the world. Not all the time but it will help.’
