Liverpool fans should be worried after 'huge' transfer development - Mills
Liverpool fans have every right to be worried after the club’s quiet transfer window, according to Danny Mills.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the ex-Manchester City and England full-back claimed City, Chelsea and Manchester United have made “huge” signings that could leave Liverpool behind.
Ibrahima Konate was the only major addition to Jurgen Klopp’s squad over the summer.
On deadline day, the Reds announced new long-term deals for Nat Phillips and Jordan Henderson but no new signings.
“I think it goes down a standard window, you’d expect that [new contracts] to happen anyhow,” Mills told Football Insider correspondent Connor Whitley.
“If you look at it in terms of strengthening the squad, I don’t think anybody is overly excited about the business that they’ve done. Tieing those players down to new long-term deals is pretty much mandatory if we’re honest. That’s what you would expect to happen.

“Liverpool fans will be looking at it and thinking ‘We’ve got to be a little bit careful here because maybe we are a little bit behind some other teams’. Manchester United, Chelsea and Manchester City have made huge signings and strengthened.
“It just hasn’t quite happened for Liverpool. They haven’t gone to that next level.
“It won’t take too many indifferent results for people to think ‘Oh, we’re a little bit further away than we thought we were’.”
United have added Raphael Varane, Jadon Sancho and Cristiano Ronaldo to the squad that finished second in the Premier League last season.
Meanwhile, City smashed the British transfer record with the £100m signing of Jack Grealish and Chelsea brought in Romelu Lukaku for £97.5million.
