John Barnes warns Liverpool against splashing Suarez cash

Liverpool legend John Barnes believes that Brendan Rogers does not need to be too radical with the £75million they are gaining in the Luis Suarez sale, according to talkSPORT.

The Reds have already brought in Rickie Lambert and Adam Lallana from Southampton, Emre Can from Bayer Leverkusen and most recently Lazar Markovic from Benfica. However Barnes believes that Liverpool should leave it at that and Rogers can work his methods around his current squad.

Barnes' comments

Talking to talkSport, he said: “A lot of people may not have heard of them, very much like Philippe Coutinho, but we don’t necessarily need to buy superstar players.

“Certain clubs, like Man City and Chelsea, need to sign big superstar players, whereas Brendan Rodgers can fit players into his philosophy and his method. They might be players we haven’t heard of and are left thinking, ‘well why is he signing him because he is not a household name’. I am happy with that.”

Potential targets

Liverpool have recently been linked to players such as Xherdan Shaqiri and Marcus Reus. Despite four great players already being drafted to Anfield, none of them can emulate the flair and class of Suarez. He bagged 31 goals last season and The Reds must sign someone who can replace him.

Nonetheless, the former England international thinks The Reds can have just as much success as last season Rogers continues with his youth policy, to gel Can and Markovic into the side whilst Raheem Sterling continues to excel as well as Philipe Coutinho pulling strings in the midfield.

Barnes could be correct in his theory and keep some of the cash for the January transfer window if things do not pan out correctly instead of Liverpool throwing all of their eggs in one basket.
