Football journalist Dean Jones has been sharing his thoughts on the current transfer situation at Liverpool regarding the potential business that could happen at the Merseyside club before the end of the window.
This comes after Jones made an appearance on a recent edition of The Done Deal Show from The Football Terrace YouTube channel where he spoke about a variety of transfer-related topics.
On the subject of Liverpool and the current transfer situation there, Jones had this to say.
He said: “I don’t believe that Jurgen Klopp wouldn’t have liked at least one signing.
“I still wouldn’t completely rule out them making one more signing, but at the moment, we’re being told, basically, not to expect that.
“It’s not looking likely that Liverpool do sign anyone.”
So far in this current summer transfer window, the Reds have signed Ibrahima Konate for a fee of £36 million from German club RB Leipzig.
In terms of outgoing transfers this summer, Liverpool have sold Harry Wilson to Championship side Fulham and Taiwo Awoniyi to German club Union Berlin on permanent deals for a combined sum of £18.45 million.
Prior to that, on the pitch, Jurgen Klopp’s side finished in third place in the Premier League table behind Manchester City and Manchester United with 69 points, failing to regain the title they won in the previous season.
TIF Thoughts on Dean Jones’ comments on Liverpool’s transfers…
With Klopp recently speaking out about the club’s financial situation in terms of acquiring transfers compared to other teams in the Premier League such as Manchester City, Chelsea and Manchester United, saying that his club can’t compete on a financial level with these teams, it will not only be interesting to see what other transfer business may or may not happen at Anfield before the deadline hits, but also how the Reds fare throughout the season compared to their main rivals.
Are you confident Liverpool can win the league this season?
In our view, while Liverpool have strengthened defensively with the arrival of Konate, they will continue to have to rely on players such as Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino as their main attacking force if they are unable to sign any other attacking players this summer, and therefore risk standing still and not progressing if last year’s failed title defence is anything to go by.
