We are trying this I think, but with the odd outlier, as the shite and spurs do also.
Also we are worse at identifying players than those teams so our results have been poor.
Have a look at @reverse_ball on twitter, good insight on transfers from Liverpool perspective. Picking up proven sub/peak talent from top leagues (firmino, Mane, Salah) before that some major youth success (coutinho, Sterling, sturridge)
They have also has a strategy of non top league talent which looks a bit more like us atm (Lookman, Adeniran, Henry, Tosun) during which time they got assaidi, boring, Asos’s, markovic, origi...so you can see what we’re doing is probably even more risky, given Liverpool’s general successful transfers.
When you buy ‘risks’ at Sub peak ages from non top 5 leagues they are just more than likely going to die on their arse.
When you spend big on attacking talent and supplement with intelligent purchases you reap rewards.
We’re quite bad at both.
