Agbonlahor: Liverpool fans should be fuming after 'dangerous' Klopp reveal
Liverpool need to drastically improve their squad if they are to have any hope of mounting a title challenge this season.
That is the view of ex-Aston Villa and England forward Gabby Agbonlahor, speaking exclusively as Football Insider revealed Jurgen Klopp is “not happy at Liverpool”.
This site was told by a Reds source on 27 July Klopp has been left frustrated by the lack of investment in his playing squad.
Apart from the addition of Ibrahima Konate, Liverpool have not added to the squad that finished third last season.
“There’s a big danger for Liverpool,” Agbonlahor told Football Insider correspondent Connor Whitley.
“Yes, they’ve brought in a defender who is supposed to be very good but they’re standing still.

“Man United have brought in Jadon Sancho, Raphael Varane. Man City are talking about Jack Grealish and Harry Kane. Chelsea are talking about Romelu Lukaku and Erling Haaland.
“You’re not hearing anything from Liverpool. They’re standing still. That’s very dangerous because they’ve got an ageing front line who need a bit of help and fresh legs to add competition. Losing Gini Wijnaldum’s legs in midfield is a big loss too.
“For me, they need to do something in the transfer window. Digogo Jota’s a very good player but he was very poor at the Euros so that shows he’s not reliable as well.
“They need more help. Divock Origi and Xherdan Shaqiri on the bench. Their bench is not good enough. They will definitely struggle to win the title this season if their bench is the same.
“If I was a Liverpool fan and all they are being linked with is Jarrod Bowen, I’d be very angry. Don’t get me wrong, he’s a good player but he’s someone you have on the bench if you can get him cheap. He’s not the sort of player that Liverpool want to be associated with.”
