Here is Liverpool’s complete transfer summer for the 2016/17 summer transfer window.
As the window came to a close on Wednesday, Liverpool continued to offload players that Klopp earlier deemed as ‘dead wood.’ No players were brought into the club on deadline day. In what can be described as a considerably busy window for the Reds, Klopp, and his team spent a total of £61.9 million, while also receiving £77.8 million in player sales. Here is your Liverpool transfer round up.
Marko Grujic – The 20-year-old midfielder came from Serbian side Red Star Belgrade after a £5.1 million deal was agreed back in January. Grujic was actually loaned back to Red Star Belgrade and did not join the squad until the end of last season.
Joel Matip – The Reds officially signed Matip back in July on a free. Klopp was able to secure Matip’s services after Schalke 04 failed to offer the Cameroonian an enticing new contract.
Loris Karius – Viewed as one of the world’s best young goalkeepers, the German signed for Liverpool in July. The former Mainz 05 goalkeeper arrived for £4.7 million and will look to replace error-prone Simon Mignolet.
Sadio Mane – The Reds’ most expensive and perhaps most exciting signing, arrived from Southampton for a fee that could rise to £36 million. The winger was brought in by Klopp in order to add some pace to the attack.
Ragnar Klavan – The Estonian was bought from Bundesliga side Augsburg for a fee of around £4.2 million. Klavan joins Joel Matip, Dejan Lovren, Joe Gomez, Lucas Leiva and Mamadou Sakho in the center back ranks.
Alex Manninger – The veteran goalkeeper was signed as a free agent in order to provide backup to Simon Mignolet and Loris Karius.
Georginio Wijnaldum – The midfielder joined Liverpool from Championship side Newcastle. A fee of £23 million was agreed between the two clubs. The Dutchmen was Liverpool’s final signing.
Jordan Rossiter – The academy player was sold to Rangers for £250k.
Jerome Sinclair – Another academy player, Sinclair was sold to Watford for £4 million after expressing his dissatisfaction with his lack of playing time.
Joao Carlos Teixeira – The midfielder returned to his homeland after FC Porto secured his services for £250k.
Lawrence Vigouroux – The Chilean goalkeeper joined Swindon Town for an undisclosed fee.
Sergi Canos – After a pretty successful loan spell at Brentford last season, this transfer came as a bit of surprise. After not being able to come to an agreement on his wages, Liverpool sold the Spaniard to Norwich City for £2.5 million.
Jordan Ibe – The Englishman was sold to AFC Bournemouth for £15 million. After not living up to his potential, Klopp decided to sell the winger. This move suits Ibe as he wouldn’t have had much first team football with Liverpool but can develop nicely under Eddie Howe.
Martin Skrtel – After an extremely disappointing season, Skrtel was sold to Turkish giants Fenerbahce for £5.5 million. It became apparent that the 31-year-old’s time at Anfield was up after eight years of loyal service to the club.
Joe Allen – After a strong performance in the Euros, it came as a bit of a surprise that Liverpool was willing to let Joe Allen go. The club could not provide the first team football that the Welshman so desperately sought. The midfielder was sold to Stoke City for £13 million.
Brad Smith – The Australian international was sold to fellow Premier League side Bournemouth for £6 million. After not fulfilling his full potential, Smith was shipped down to the South Coast after Klopp decided that the full back would not be a part of his first team plans.
Christain Benteke – The largest sale of the summer, Benteke was sold to Crystal Palace for £27m. After only arriving last summer, Benteke never fulfilled his potential and soon became an outcast. This sale will see Liverpool recuperate most of the money that they spent on the Belgian just last summer.
Luis Alberto – A deal completed on deadline day, the Spaniard made the switch to Lazio for £4.3m.
Mario Balotelli – The controversial striker made the switch to French side Nice; The Italian left on a free. Most fans will not be bothered about not making money off the transfer, but are happy to be rid of the striker after his extremely disappointing career at Liverpool.
Danny Ward – With Loris Karius, Simon Mignolet, and Alex Manniger already at the club, Ward was sent to Huddersfield Town to get some first team football. The goalkeeper will hope to improve his skills in order to challenge for a first-team spot next season.
Adam Bogdan – Similar to Ward, Bogdan is another goalkeeper that would not have received much playing time. The Hungarian was sent to Wigan Athletic in order to get as much playing time as possible.
Ryan Fulton – The academy keeper was sent over to League One side, Chesterfield on a season-long loan.
Jack Dunn – The attacker was sent to Morecambe on a season-long loan.
Allen Rodrigues De Souza – The 19-year-old was sent to Hertha Berlin on a season-long loan, although he does seem to be a part of Klopp’s future plans.
Jon Flanagan – After an extensive amount of injuries, the fullback was sent to Burnley in order to gain back some of his fitness.
Lloyd Jones – The youngster completed a season-long loan move to Swindon Town.
Sam Hart – Another youth player, Hart completed a season-long loan to Port Vale.
Lazar Markovic – The out of favor winger completed a loan move on deadline day. He returned to a league that he is familiar with in Portugal as he moved to Sporting Lisbon.
Andre Wisdom – After spending last season on loan at Norwich City, Wisdom has gone out on loan once more. This time, the full-back will ply his trade at Red Bull Salzburg.
