Former Liverpool midfielder Charlie Adam believes that Jurgen Klopp's men are "one or two players" away from the Premier League title.

Former Liverpool midfielder Charlie Adam has outlined the Reds' Premier League credentials by stating that they are "one or two players from the title".

The Merseysiders, who finished fourth last term, have spent upwards of £175m on new signings this summer.

Naby Keita, Fabinho, Xherdan Shaqiri and Alisson Becker have all arrived at Anfield, just months after Virgil van Dijk became the world's most expensive defender in a £75m move from Southampton.

"Liverpool are one or two players from the title," Adam, now at Stoke City, told BBC Sport. "[Jurgen Klopp] has added quality to the squad, I still think they could do with another centre-half.

"They have brought Shaqiri in, a good replacement if Mohamed Salah needs a rest. Daniel Sturridge is to come back in - if he stays fit he could be in that team as well.

"The goalkeeper situation was a big problem for them last season. He has seen that problem and got that deal done. [Alisson] is going to be worth six to eight points over the season. It adds a total belief and confidence."

Liverpool last won the English top-flight championship in 1990.
