Former Arsenal star Merson warned Liverpool FC that the Reds need three signings in the summer transfer window to bolster their squad ahead of a title challenge next term.
“They are still short. They need a centre-half. They need a goalkeeper who is going to save you points,” Merson told Sky Sports.
“The front three are as good as anybody but if one of them get injured, you need someone else.”
Liverpool FC finished in fourth place in the Premier League table to secure a return to the Champions League after two-season absence.
