Report: Liverpool not planning major summer spending

The Mirror reports that if Liverpool are to complete any more transfer business this summer it won’t be anything high profile.

Liverpool completed a deal to sign Sepp van den Berg on Thursday before Rafael Camacho was sold to Sporting Lisbon for £5million later in the day.

Supporters are pleased to see both deals go through but are desperate to see Liverpool make more ambitious moves in the market. Yet, if the Mirror’s David Maddock is to be believed, that doesn’t look likely.

He writes that he only expects Klopp to make a couple small squad signings and if he does target a new forward like many news outlets claim, it won’t be for much more than £20m.

If true, all interest in Nicolas Pepe would be fruitless as Lille are reportedly demanding €80m (£71.7m) for his services.

While supporters trust Jurgen Klopp’s instincts in the transfer market given his success in that area at Liverpool, not signing another high quality forward would be a mistake.

Beyond the world class front three of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino, Divock Origi and Xherdan Shaqiri are the only experienced options available to Klopp.

While both had their moments last season, neither is equipped to lead the line for Liverpool for extended periods if called upon.
