Curtis Jones and Harvey Elliott offer a glimpse into the future, both of whom are 21 and 19 years old respectively. But three of Liverpool’s first-team midfielders are 30-plus and there is a desperate need of injecting some more youth to revive their squad.
The 9-0 win over Bournemouth, as historic and impressive on paper as it was, will not paper over the midfield issues FSG need to rectify in the transfer market. Liverpool’s defensive and attacking units are some of the best in Europe, largely due to the investment placed in both areas.
If FSG are able to bring the investment for the midfield in line with the other areas then Liverpool will once again be a force to be reckoned with.
