‘AFCON means Liverpool need more firepower’ – Salah and Mane cover required, says Murphy

The former Reds midfielder expects Jurgen Klopp to dip into the market for attacking talent despite having already passed on Timo Werner

Liverpool will need to dip into the transfer market for “additional firepower” when the transfer window re-opens, says Danny Murphy, with the Africa Cup of Nations set to see them lose Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane for a long period in 2020-21.

The 2021 AFCON in Cameroon was initially due to be held in the summer of 2021, but it has been rescheduled and will now run from January 9 to February 6.

Egypt and Senegal – the respective nations of Salah and Mane – will be among those setting their sights on the ultimate prize if qualification is secured.
