Liverpool fans react after club reject chance to sign Marcos Llorente

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.

Llorente is rated at £18m per Transfermarkt but only played seven times in La Liga ahead of his move to Atletico.

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.
