Liverpool’s transfer business could have reached its conclusion for this transfer window, with Reds boss Jürgen Klopp seemingly content with the business the club has conducted so far.
That is according to Dharmesh Sheth of Sky Sports, who was speaking to GiveMeSport about the club’s transfer window.
It has been a steady summer at Anfield, with just three new arrivals at the club so far, whilst there have been nine permanent departures from the Merseyside club this summer.
Although this is undoubtedly a small number of arrivals, it must also be taken into account that one of these purchases was the acquisition of 23-year-old Uruguay striker Darwin Núñez for a club-record fee of £85m from Benfica.
Meanwhile, in terms of departures, the highest-profile exit so far has been that of Senegal forward Sadio Mané, who signed for German giants Bayern Munich in June for a deal worth up to £35m.
And Sheth believes that Klopp is ‘pretty satisfied’ with the club’s business so far this summer, and that whilst the focus at Anfield is more likely to be on outgoings, there’s a high chance that there will be no new arrivals or departures for the Reds before the transfer window shuts in September.
“It seems that way [that Liverpool will focus on outgoings], but even with the outgoings, there might not be any more,” said Sheth.
“I think Jurgen Klopp is pretty satisfied with the business that they’ve done, and the speed at which they’ve done that business.
“They’ve effectively got everything sorted ahead of their pre-season, and they’ll just be gelling, I guess.”
TIF Thoughts on Sheth’s comments…
We believe that it will come as no surprise or concern to Liverpool fans that there are unlikely to be any more major additions or departures at the club this summer.
The Merseyside club haven’t been known for major upheaval in summer transfer windows since Klopp arrived at the club, with the main focus being on gradually adding to and improving the side.
We believe that Liverpool will feel that with the addition of Núñez, they are now in as good a position as any to challenge Manchester City for the Premier League title this season.
