Liverpool have had a quiet transfer window to say the least. The Reds have only added one first team player in the shape of Kostas Tsimikas with the Reds keeping their wallet in their pocket due to the financial impact of the global health crisis. The club can, however, benefit from the moves other clubs are making.

Liverpool spending curtailed

The Reds have reportedly lost in excess of £100m as a result of the global health crisis.

The club have taken hits to commercial revenue, sponsorships, broadcasting money and matchday income.

Sustaining such losses has led to Jürgen Klopp starting the season with essentially the same squad as last season.

Spurs strengthening

According to Duncan Castles, Spurs have agreed a deal to bring Gareth Bale back to the club seven years after they sold him to Real Madrid for £85m.

Fabrizio Romano has claimed that they have also agreed the €30m (£27.5m) purchase of Sergio Reguilon from Real Madrid.

 

These two transfers would add considerable might to a stuttering Spurs side that are struggling to find consistent form under Jose Mourinho.

Liverpool benefit from Spurs signings

Last season Liverpool won the league by a country mile and on their way they only dropped two points against the top 6 sides.

Of course, once the league was done and dusted points started dropping more freely but, frankly, who cares?

If the Reds are to retain the title this year they’ll need their rivals to continue dropping points. Spurs strengthening in such a manner should hopefully see them nick some points off the likes of Chelsea and Manchester City.

We have shown that we can win big games against tough opposition. We should still have enough to get past the North London side.

However, whether Manchester City and Chelsea have enough is another matter. Fingers crossed Bale can stop Pep Guardiola and Frank Lampard in their tracks.
