This summer could be a pivotal one in Liverpool’s future, with Brendan Rodgers’ side looking only one or two players away from being able to compete for a place in the top four and a return to the Champions League.
But, the Northern Irishman may well have to go about his transfer business with a restricted budget, as news of the club’s debts rising by £20m under FSG broke this week.
These figures may be slightly warped due to a number of high-earning stars having left the club and the effects of new mega-money sponsorship deals not being factored in. But, the fact remains that the Reds will not be able to compete with the very best teams financially this summer.
Although there may be funds in place for one big signing, Rodgers will have to do a lot of business on a shoestring budget, but don’t fear Liverpool fans, there are plenty of bargains available as this list shows.
