Liverpool FC still need to sign another top-class centre-half to play alongside Virgil van Dijk next season, Craig Burley has claimed.

The Reds have been of the busiest clubs in the transfer window so far following the arrival of four new faces at Anfield this summer.

Liverpool FC acted swiftly to sign Brazil international Fabinho in a £39m deal from Ligue 1 side AS Monaco to improve their options in the middle of the park.

Naby Keita finally completed his £48m switch to Liverpool FC from Bundesliga outfit RB Leipzig after the Reds reached an agreement to sign the African last summer.

The Merseyside outfit have also brought in Switzerland international Xherdan Shaqiri in a cut price £13.5m deal from relegated Stoke City.

Liverpool FC spent a world record transfer fee for a goalkeeper last week after Brazil number one Alisson Becker in a £67m deal from Serie A giants AS Roma.

The 18-time English champions have the world’s most expensive defender and goalkeeper in their side for the new Premier League campaign.

Former Chelsea FC defender Burley believes Liverpool FC still need to sign a centre-half to replace World Cup finalist Dejan Lovren.

“I like the look of Liverpool,” Burley told ESPN FC. “They still need a centre-half to go alongside Van Dijk.”

Liverpool FC finished in fourth spot in the Premier League table last term.
