Liverpool can only sign one star –
hard to get in 'squad members,' Owen says.
The former Reds striker doesn't expect Jurgen Klopp to supervise much movement in the next transfer window at Anfield
In the next transfer window, Liverpool is likely to be quiet, says Michael Owen, with the former Reds striker expecting Jurgen Klopp to try just one signing..
Even that can prove beyond the newly-crowned champions of the Premier League, with little room for change in their starting XI star-studded.
Any summer market break could see the Reds looking for "squad members."However, Owen has cautioned that it is never easy to bring in choices who know they will be limited to the bench duty.
With all of that in mind and with the financial consequences of the coronavirus pandemic likely to see purse strings tightened around the board,squad reinforcement on Merseyside is likely to prove to be tricky.
Ex-Liverpool superstar Owen told BBC radio 5 Live recruitment issues at Anfield:"I don't think they're going to make many if they make one that I think would be a major one.
"In the future you can always buy 16 or17-year-old kids, stuff like that but I don't think there will be many in terms of effect on the squad.
"I know some people are all about keeping things fresh and keeping things alive, but they don't always.
"I know if I'm a boss, I don't think I 'd like big rosters, yeah, you can get injuries, but it seems, Jurgen Klopp, at the moment he has the most amazing harmony.
"how often does Liverpool need to be strengthened? At the left-back they may need cover, but where are you going for it?
"You can't find the best left-back in the world.
You could go and get a kid who could
be the next best left-back, the academy could have one.
"It's hard to buy team members. They've tried, they've used their name to get members on the cheap ones like [Takumi]Minamino, like [Xherdan] Shaqiri, players like that that they can use the logo and everybody wants to join them.
"It's very hard to look at the team in Liverpool
and claim they look bad here and need to be improved.
"however I don't think so much is going to change, I don't think the squad is mature enough to need a turn around. They 're the strongest team right now, it's just how long they can keep it going.
