Liverpool’s newest signing Mohamed Salah is believed to have become a club record purchase but it looks like it won’t stay that way for long.
A deal for Mohamed Salah is all but wrapped up and the Egyptian is all set to become the Reds new record signing.
The exact total of the fee is as of yet undisclosed but it is believed it will eclipse the £35m paid for Andy Carroll back in 2011 and could rise to as high as £45m with add-ons.
However, it seems Klopp is not done there. David Maddock of the Mirror believes the Reds are prepared to smash their transfer record out the park not just once more this summer but twice!
Maddock claims that Klopp has been “consistent in his intent to bring in at least FOUR key signings this summer,” as well as looking to bolster other areas with squad options.
The areas in which the German is said to be looking to spend? A “central midfield controller and a centre back.”
We’ve already seen the Reds linked with high-profile targets such as the likes of Virgil Van Dijk – who Maddock claims is “still intent on an Anfield move,” Kalidou Koulibaly, Naby Keita and Leon Goretzka this summer, who would all likely command price tags in excess of the £45-50m mark.
Despite having a full shortlist of alternatives, Maddock believes Klopp hopes to make things right with the Southampton board and bring Van Dijk to Merseyside, while his midfield target “has remained consistent too,” with the German said to still be intent on signing Naby Keita of RB Leipzig.
It is thought that if the Reds do manage to sign both of these players, it could cost as much as £120m for their combined services.
However, one area Maddock does not believe Klopp will spend big is the left-back position and he ruled out any move for Monaco star Benjamin Mendy.
Klopp has supposedly identified 19-year old Kieran Tierney of Celtic and Andrew Roberston of Hull as his targets for the position.
What do you think guys think? Will Liverpool break their transfer record twice more, let alone once?
