Paul Merson believes that Liverpool FC need to make “a couple” of new signings this summer to be able to challenge for the Premier League title next season.

The Reds have been earning huge amounts of praise for their strong performances this term under Jurgen Klopp as the German manager guided them to a fourth-placed finish in the Premier League for the second season running.

Liverpool FC have also been in superb form in the Champions League, with the Reds set to take on Real Madrid in the Champions League final next weekend.

The Merseyside outfit already know that Naby Keita will be linking up with their squad this summer as his transfer from RB Leipzig is confirmed.

But the Reds are bound to be linked with a host of other players as the Merseyside outfit look to build a squad capable of winning the title next term.

And Merson feels that the Merseyside club are only a few signings away from being able to challenge Manchester City’s dominance of the Premier League next season.

Speaking on The Debate on Sky Sports, former Arsenal star Merson said: “They [Liverpool FC] are the ones who can chase Man City down if they get a couple of more players.

“Over a game, I’d have Liverpool to beat Man City every week.”

Liverpool FC will take on Real Madrid on Saturday night as they look to lift the Champions League trophy in Kiev.
