They’re not good enough – McManaman warns Jurgen Klopp over two stars
The club has been forewarned by former Liverpool player Steve McManaman not to sign Youri Tielemans or Douglas Luiz.
In the waning hours of the summer transfer window, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp signed Juventus star Arthur Melo on a season-long loan.
The Reds are interested in signing Borussia Dortmund's Jude Bellingham, but the German club will probably demand a high price for the highly sought-after 19-year-old next summer.
But McManaman feels both Tielemans and Luiz do not possess the quality that Klopp needs to strengthen his Liverpool midfield.
“Douglas Luiz and Youri Tielemans are both good Premier League players, but I don’t believe they’re good enough for Liverpool," McManaman told Horseracing.net.
I’m not convinced it will be a smart bit of business by Liverpool to move for Douglas Luiz, regardless of whether his contract is expiring or not.
“Are they good enough to get into the starting line-up of one of the world’s best teams?" I just don’t think so at the moment. "
