Liverpool Transfer Rumours: Will There Be Any More Transfers to Anfield?

A potential target.

Liverpool is finally happy again after a satisfactory win against fellow Champions League place contenders Arsenal. This is an encouraging win for Liverpool for a few reasons: Their new signings played well, they have not won away to Arsenal for over 10 years and it was their first win of the season.

With all these positive things that happened today, you can't help but wonder: Do Liverpool need to sign anyone else?

The rumour mills have not been turning at quite the same rate as they were at the start of the window, but Liverpool are still frequently being linked to efforts to add a centre-back like Scott Dann or Gary Cahill.

With the first-choice pairing of Daniel Agger and Jamie Carragher playing well against Arsenal, I really do not see any need for Liverpool to sign a centre-half. If either or both of these players is injured, Liverpool have very able replacements in Soto, Skrtel and Kelly (when he is not filling in on the right).

The other position which supporters think needs strengthening is a backup striker. However, having recently spent over £50m on strikers, and having Kuyt and Ngog as fairly capable replacements, I do not think this area needs strengthening.

Also, while Shane Long would have been a good signing, he has left to West Brom.

There are not many players who would tick all the boxes for Liverpool. They have also been linked to Gonzalo Higuain, but that signing would probably cost in excess of £20m—way too much for a part player.

That's just my opinion. Please comment if you disagree, and thanks for reading.
