Why Liverpool should have signed Julian Brandt when they had the chance
Liverpool looked a little leggy in the first couple of games this season but have clawed back fantastically, managing to hold onto their 100% record in the Premier League without having to play at full tilt.
They might regret having not signed any senior players this summer after a fantastic campaign last season, which was rewarded with a Champions League trophy but it’s too early to come to any conclusions.
Liverpool have strengthened other areas in their squad in the last few years but the one area they’ve missed is the creative midfield unit.
They had 7 draws in the league last season, which could’ve been the difference between winning those games and ultimately winning the league.
This wasn’t helped by the fact that Alex Oxlade Chamberlain was often injured and Naby Keita was still finding his feet in England and at his new club.
One player they were linked with over the summer is Borussia Dortmund ace, Julian Brandt. The German international joined Jurgen Klopp’s former side after impressing during his time at Bayer Leverkusen.
Last season he was moved to an attacking midfield position for many of the games, while also playing as a left-winger and right-winger. He registered 17 assists and 10 goals.
The impressive stat here was the number of assists that he registered and it is something that Liverpool could definitely use after losing Philippe Coutinho.

Roberto Firmino and full-backs Trent Alexander Arnold and Andrew Robertson have taken most of the creative burden but Liverpool need new solutions and the German would’ve been helped greatly.
Liverpool now go into a period where they’ll be in other cup competitions and having someone like Brandt in the side would’ve helped massively.
