Liverpool have been one of the more successful Premier League clubs in this summer’s transfer window.
The club have made a statement by making Brazil’s number one Alisson the most expensive goalkeeper in the world.
They have also recruited midfielders Fabinho and Naby Keita, as well as winger Xherdan Shaqiri.
With just three days left to go before the window slammed shut, many would have assumed that the Reds’ spending was done.
For some time, there was some hope among the Liverpool faithful that a collapsed deal for Nabil Fekir would be revived, but it seems unlikely.

At the weekend, though, manager Jurgen Klopp caused a stir when asked by Sky Sports whether the club will make any last-minute signings.
The German coach replied by saying, “We’ll see what happens”, and then added a comment that has got plenty of fans talking.
The Liverpool Echo’s James Pearce posted the remark on Twitter.
Klopp asked about potential incomings by Sky: "I can't kill your D-Day where people sit in front of the TV and watch."

Some Liverpool supporters have interpreted it as Klopp saying that it is unlikely that his club will complete any more business, while others believe that he is hinting at more arrivals.

C’mon people. Stop it now.
If JK wanted any more incoming he would have made them earlier. He dislikes late incomings, we know that.
Further, it’s not like Fekir would be impossible if JK wanted it. Had he wanted it, it would have happened already. Relax now please

Klopp said we might be busy on deadline day before and absolutely nothing happened 😂

He basically means no. He doesn’t want to say ‘no’ as there wont be any Liverpool fans tuning in to watch the transfer deadline day program. No more incomings.
