After chairman Tom Werner said that Liverpool would be backed financially in the transfer market this summer, principal owner John W. Henry went one better.

He told Sky Sports News that the Reds will have all the backing they need to win the Premier League after this season’s narrow defeat by Manchester City.

The Red Sox owner said: “We are going to have a go. [But] we feel like we are strong already.

“We haven’t gone through that process yet because we are still playing but every year we have shown we are willing to invest in the right kind of players and do it the right way so that the club is sustainable.”

Last year’s Champions League final, which saw Liverpool cruelly defeated by Real Madrid, was followed up two days later with a stealthy announcement that the club had signed Fabinho from Monaco.

While there are no guarantees that tomorrow’s final will be followed by a new signing being announced on Monday, there have been a few signs in the last few days to suggest it’s more than possible.


Firstly, we have Klopp telling the Telegraph that it’s not hard anymore to get players to join Liverpool as he no longer needs to explain and map out his vision for the club to signings.

Could that suggest that he has already managed to convince a player to buy into the work he’s doing at Anfield? We’ll see very soon.

Then, you have chairman Werner and owner Henry telling the media that Fenway Sports Group will provide the club with all the support and approval they need to improve the playing squad ahead of next season.

It might just be that Liverpool fans are so hopeful or it could be that the big decision-makers have approved a major transfer to be announced in the next week or so.

Either way, the next few days will be huge for Liverpool Football Club.
