Liverpool really are having a quiet summer in the transfer window, and with just 15 days of the market remaining, the Reds are running out of time to secure some new faces.
Most of the noise coming out of Anfield is that there won’t be any major arrivals, and signings will only be made if their is a situational change with current Liverpool players.
Incidentally, the start of the season is looking like it could potentially be a problem for the Champions League winners. Sadio Mane will miss the Community Shield game and will only return just four days before the first league game, whilst Alisson, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino have also been granted extended holidays.
It’s hardly a groundbreaking solution to Klopp’s problem from Durham, but he is right to suggest it.
Liverpool’s squad is thin for a club hoping to compete competently in Europe and in the Premier League, and it is a very real possibility that the Reds completely unravel if there was an injury to Virgil van Dijk, Salah or another key performer.
They have the money. John Henry has already said they will invest, so there is no reason as to why no fresh faces have arrived.
Manchester City just won a quadruple and then went and smashed their club-record transfer fee on Rodri – that is how the top clubs stay on top, and Liverpool can’t afford to slip off again after working so hard to clamber back up.
