CBS reporter Ben Jacobs has given an update on potential new business from Liverpool during the summer transfer window.
The truth: Liverpool’s signings so far
As things stand, the Reds have agreed deals to bring Darwin Nunez, Calvin Ramsay and Fabio Carvalho to Anfield, while Takumi Minamino, Divock Origi and Sadio Mane have all been big name departures.
Despite continued speculation surrounding a potential transfer for a new midfielder, in particular Borussia Dortmund superstar Jude Bellingham, rumors from the Merseyside red half have recently downplayed the prospect of new arrivals ahead of the 2022/23 campaign. .
A well-informed source has now given his verdict on whether or not Jurgen Klopp will strengthen the ranks at Anfield…
The latest: “Sources in Liverpool…”
Speaking to GiveMeSport, Jacobs cited ‘sources’ at Liverpool as being happy with the club’s summer transfer activity so far, while adding that another signing cannot be entirely ruled out.
He said: “There are quite a few sources at Liverpool who are quite happy if it’s just their window. So that’s not to say they’ll definitely say the door is closed to all players, but that means they don’t need anyone else.
The Verdict: Money in the Bank
Despite heavy spending, Liverpool have currently only spent a net £26.81m during the current transfer window, although the £37m January signing of Luis Diaz from FC Porto and Mohamed Salah’s lucrative new contract should be factored into the summer. scope of expenditure.
However, with fringe players such as Ben Woodburn, Sheyi Ojo, Loris Karius and a plethora of youngsters all leaving the club on loan or permanently, the wage bill at Anfield appears to have benefited from a nice supplement and should therefore leave room for improvement. square. for another potential addition.
Are you happy with Liverpool’s summer business so far?
Given the impressive record turnover of recent months and the success of the double cup of the 2021/22 campaign, the FSG should be ready to sanction new arrivals if they are deemed necessary by Julian Ward and even Klopp.
With a somewhat aging midfield and injuries like Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Naby Keita proving to be a major hurdle, there is certainly room for at least one addition in the middle of the park; and if a genuine midfield target becomes available, the club must remain open to act quickly.
