After the highs of winning the Champions League in early June, Liverpool fans have had little to get excited about in the whirlwind world of the transfer window.
However, things in general have been fairly quiet on the red half of Merseyside, and following the Reds’ pre-season clash against Tranmere, it appears Liverpool will not be pulling up trees anytime soon.
Jurgen Klopp suggested that injury returns for the likes of Rhian Brewster and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are “new players” for the club and appeared to downplay the chances of any major signings this summer.

After hearing Klopp’s comments, Liverpool fans took to Twitter to voice their opinion on the matter and many were rather frustrated by the German’s revelations.
Reds fans labelled the news as “concerning” and questioned where their reported revenue was going if it wasn’t being spent on new signings.
Indeed, some suggested that the club were taking a “huge risk” with their summer transfer strategy and expressed their concern at rival clubs potentially catching up to them next season.
Check out some of the reaction of Liverpool fans below:

We had record revenue as a result of the success last year. If it’s not being invested in the playing squad where is it going?

I’m confident we’ll be contending for the PL, but without more depth we can’t expect to be in the running for all the cups, player’s bodies can’t cope with that kind of demand

People although really impressed with spurs miss important facts. They achieved nothing last season. We are taking huge risk of allowing others to catch up of we don’t add players.

Why arnt we kicking on & adding to the squad! Currently we are standing still with city already improving their squad! With all the success last season, there was still areas to improve & add too! Not getting this rubbish that Brewster and chamberlain are new signings lol
