Liverpool confirmed their first signing of the transfer window on Thursday afternoon, bringing 17-year-old defender Sepp van den Berg to the club.
It looks as though it could be a quiet summer, however, after it was also revealed that they rejected the chance to sign Marcos Llorente.
The midfielder eventually signed for Atletico Madrid but per SER Deportivos, Liverpool turned down the opportunity to bring him to Anfield.
Reacting to news that he wasn’t a ‘priority’ for the Reds, one supporter claimed that it was a fair decision whilst another said they agreed with what Liverpool had done.
However, other supporters were concerned by their lack of activity in the window. One fan talked about squad depth, saying the club would be stuck with players like Adam Lallana, whilst a further individual simply said they still need to sign players.

A defensive midfielder, it perhaps would have been a questionable signing anyway given they already have Fabinho in their ranks.
Here’s some of the reaction.
Fair decision tbh. Marcos Llorente is a quality player, but I don’t see where he fits in at the moment, and it would a redundant signing with Fabinho occupying his position.

Theres noone guys! Klopp trusts our squad now but we need squad depth and good ones at that to push for the title but it won’t happen we’ll be stuck with lallana

I keep saying it’s very unlikely we will sign anyone for a big fee. Can’t complain at moment as the owners and klopp have improved us each season so we have to trust them. If end of season we are miles behind and not competition etc then we can express our dissapointment

Said it all along we’re not signing anyone

I ageee & that’s the reason I believe we won’t try for Ndombele for example. Very good player but at those amounts not needed.
Need to go all out on versatile attackers.
