Liverpool could still make further signings this summer despite potentially breaking their club record fee to sign Darwin Nunez, according to Sky Sports reporter Dharmesh Sheth, with the club closing in on the signature of Aberdeen’s Calvin Ramsey.

The Reds confirmed their second signing of the window earlier this week when the highly-rated Benfica star made the switch to Anfield.

What business have Liverpool already completed?

Liverpool might have been just two games away from securing an unprecedented quadruple last season, but Jurgen Klopp has already moved quickly to improve his squad and ensure they keep pace with Manchester City.

Even before the market had officially reopened, the Reds swooped to bring in Fabio Carvalho, who was close to joining in January, only for his deadline day move to collapse in the final hours.

With Carvalho out of contract at Craven Cottage, Liverpool finally secured his services in a £5m deal, which could rise to £7.2m with add ons.

Liverpool then secured arguably the biggest deal of the window so far when they brought in Nunez for an initial fee of £64m, although it could rise to £85m, which would see him become the club’s record signing, surpassing the £75m the Reds paid Southampton for Virgil van Dijk in 2018.

What did Sheth say about Liverpool?

When asked whether Liverpool’s business is done, he told GIVEMESPORT: “Not necessarily. What’s impressive about what Manchester City and Liverpool have done is, they’re now in a position of power, they’re dominating the Premier League and the domestic cups as well, if last season is anything to go by, and within a week of the transfer window opening, City have signed Haaland and Liverpool have broken their transfer record, it could rise to £85m for Darwin Nunez from Benfica, and they’re not finished.”

Where do Liverpool need to strengthen?

When you look through Klopp’s squad, there really aren’t many weaknesses.

The German has four competent centre-backs and two left-backs, while Ramsay is set to sign and provide competition for Trent Alexander-Arnold on the right.

Despite Sadio Mane potentially leaving this window, the Reds still possess one of the most feared attacks in world football, with Carvalho and Nunez joining a frontline which already includes Harvey Elliott, Mohamed Salah, Luis Diaz, Roberto Firmino and Diogo Jota.

If there’s one position Klopp could improve it would be in the middle of the park. He currently has seven central options, but Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is up for sale, James Milner turns 37 in January and Curtis Jones is yet to fully make his mark on first-team proceedings.

But according to The Times, Liverpool are most likely going to have to wait until next summer before they sign a marquee midfielder following the expensive arrival of Nunez.
