Jurgen Klopp has overseen a vast overhaul of the Liverpool squad during his four years in charge. The German boss has earned a reputation for his brilliant dealing in the transfer market.
Liverpool have brought in 22 players during Klopp’s reign and less than a handful have actually failed to deliver.
Dominic Solanke joined the club from Chelsea in 2017. Liverpool seemed to have made a coup in signing the U20 World Cup winner. However, the player failed to live up to expectations only scoring once during his time at the club.
The Liverpool board somehow convinced Bournemouth to pay £19m for the misfiring forward, bringing an end to his two-year stint on Merseyside.
Steven Caulker is undoubtedly Klopp’s strangest transfer.
The club were hit by a defensive crisis during the 2015/16 season and brought in Caulker to help. During his short stay at Anfield the player made four appearances primarily as a striker.
It seemed the Liverpool staff took one close look at Caulker and immediately regretted their decision to bring the QPR player in.

Loris Karius signed for the club in 2016 to much excitement from the fans.
The Anfield faithful were hopeful Klopp had unearthed the next Manuel Neuer from his former club Mainz. Unfortunately for us he turned out to be nothing of the sort.
The German goalkeeper will forever be remembered by Liverpool fans for his two clangers which cost the club a Champions League final victory against Real Madrid in 2018. There was no coming back from that and Karius was shipped out on loan to Besiktas.
The worrying thing is he is still technically a Liverpool player and could be back at Anfield at the end of this season.
