Emile Heskey sent a transfer note to Liverpool manager Michael Edwards.
Emile Heskey has warned Liverpool that they need to sign at least one more player.
Former striker Emile Heskey has advised Liverpool manager Michael Edwards to bring in at least one more player during the summer transfer window. Last season, Liverpool finished third in the Premier League, 17 points behind champion Manchester City.
In the current transfer window, Liverpool has only signed French centre-back Ibrahima Konate from RB Leipzig.
Liverpool have sold Harry Wilson to recently relegated Fulham for £12.6 million and Taiwo Awoniyi to Union Berlin for £5.8 million in terms of outgoings.
Liverpool appeared to be on the verge of missing out on the Champions League this season after shock home defeats to Burnley and Fulham saw them drop to seventh place in March.
However, a late-season surge saw them conclude the season with a 10-match unbeaten streak, securing third place.
However, Heskey, who has 60 goals in 223 appearances for the Reds, has told Edwards that they need another signing if they want to compete for the crown.
He told ITV Sport, “They’ll try to push back up to who wins the league.”
“What Man City has done has put them out on their own, and what Chelsea has done by buying Lukaku is a statement.
“I believe Liverpool could do with getting one.” Man City completed the £100 million purchase of Jack Grealish this week.
Tottenham striker and England captain Harry Kane has also been linked with a move to the club.
Chelsea has had a quiet summer window so far, with Marcus Bettinelli joining on a free transfer from Fulham.
However, they are allegedly near to completing the £97.5 million signing of Romelu Lukaku from Inter Milan.
They had been connected with Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland, but it now appears that they have switched their focus to the Belgium international.
The Blues will be hoping to improve on their fourth-place result in the Premier League last season.
After defeating Manchester City in the Champions League final, Thomas Tuchel’s side will be expected to challenge for the Premier League crown next season.
On August 14, Liverpool will kick off their Premier League campaign against newly promoted Norwich City.
On the 28th of August, they will face Chelsea at Anfield.
