Liverpool have no chance of winning the title unless Jurgen Klopp makes some more summer signings, according to Steve Nicol.

The Reds finished in fourth place in their first full season under the former Borussia Dortmund manager last term.

Indeed, Liverpool ended up a point ahead of Arsenal to secure a return to the Champions League after a two-season absence.

Klopp has signed AS Roma winger Mohamed Salah in a £36.7m deal and England Under-20 international Dominic Solanke on a free transfer from Premier League champions Chelsea so far.

However, given Liverpool’s well-documented injury problems and continued concerns about Sadio Mane’s fitness, some supporters are demanding further signings.

Former Liverpool full-back Nicol is under no illusion that Klopp must add some more numbers to his squad if the Reds are going to challenge for the title next term.

Asked on ESPN FC whether Liverpool can win the title next term with Klopp’s current squad, Nicol said: “How quickly do you want an answer? No chance.”

Liverpool haven’t won the Premier League title but finished in second place in 2002, 2009 and 2014.

The Reds will be hoping to end a 28-year top-flight drought under Klopp next season.
