Liverpool FC: Squad Strength and Summer Transfer Needs

John Henry, the new owner of Liverpool FC, showed in his purchasing of Luis Suarez and Andy Carroll that he means business.

He has demonstrated conclusively that he has no objection to putting his money where his mouth is when the team needs a player—arguably to too great an extent in the Carroll deal.

But as any Red Sox fan will tell you, the man is no idiot and no Abramovich. The club will be run like a business and players will be bought and sold for needs alone and not, as is the case at Chelsea, on the whims of an irrational and spoiled billionaire.

He will not spend gratuitously and unwisely and will seek where possible to rely on young players already in the squad rather than going out and buying in new blood. However, where a situation arises where a purchase is necessary, he will not go for the cheap option but rather pay the money required to bring in young, top quality players who can serve the club for years to come.

Bearing this philosophy in mind, I would like to take a look at what Liverpool need to do this summer to guarantee they have a competitive squad next season.
