Steve Nicol doesn’t believe Liverpool FC supporters should be panicking about the club’s lack of signings in the summer transfer window so far.

The Reds finished the 2018-19 season as Champions League winners after a 2-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur in the final in Madrid on 1 June.

As reigning European champions, Liverpool FC are in a strong position to attract some big names to Anfield in the current transfer window.

Jurgen Klopp has been credited with an interest in some promising talents, such as Lille winger Nicolas Pepe and Real Madrid playmaker Marcos Asensio.

However, the Reds have only signed 17-year-old Dutch defender Sepp van den Berg in a £1.6m deal from FC Twolle so far this summer.

Bu former Liverpool FC defender Nicol isn’t concerned given the lack of transfer activity at the Merseyside outfit’s top-six rivals this summer.

“Right now I’m not concerned, no, I’m not,” Nicol told ESPN FC.

“Had everybody else gone out and been spending money and bringing in players left, right and centre then yes [I would have been concerned].

“Then my argument would be ‘hold on, everybody else is going and strengthening’ but the truth is they’re not.

“Right now, because of where Liverpool are, it’s not a case of going out and just signing anybody.

“They have to be careful, they have to make sure they sign the right ones.

“Now I will say that I think they’ve made a bad start by re-signing Divock Origi.

“But I guess there will be a time where they do need numbers in the League Cup, your FA Cup.

“But no, I’m not panicking yet.”

Manchester United have been the busiest top-six club after recruiting Swansea City midfielder Daniel James and Crystal Palace defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

Christian Pulisic has finally linked up with the Chelsea FC squad but neither Manchester City nor Arsenal have signed any players of note.

Tottenham broke the transfer record to land Lyon midfielder Tanguy Ndombele earlier this month.

Liverpool FC finished in second place in the Premier League table last term and a point adrift of Manchester City.
