Just when we thought that the incoming transfer activity at Liverpool was done for the summer following the arrivals of Jordan Henderson, Charlie Adam, Stewart Downing, Alexander Doni and Jose Enrique, Kenny Dalglish has told us that he is still under pressure to make more signings and he does not have to sell first before he brings anyone in.
“I’m not under pressure to sell,” he told the Liverpool Daily Post.
“We are under more pressure to get somebody in.
“The owners have been fantastic and there is no pressure in any way, shape or form.”
Dalglish added: “We had to be fair to everybody we have on the books and we gave them all a reasonable opportunity to get themselves fit and to prove they were worthy of a game.
“I don’t see any reason why that is not the correct way to go about things.”
You can be sure that this news will start to trigger the transfer rumour mill at Liverpool again. I am sure Dalglish would still like to make one or two more signings this summer, mainly another striker and a centre-back. Another winger would also be welcome as we are being linked with Celtic’s Paddy McCourt.
