Liverpool have been active in the transfer market this window. The Reds have brought in Kostas Tsimikas, Thiago Alcantara and Diogo Jota in recent weeks. These moves will mean that the club will look to trim the squad and raise funds to cover the cost of these transfers, departures are expected. According to Goal, Liverpool have received bids for Rhian Brewster, Marko Grujic and Harry Wilson.
Liverpool brought Kostas Tsimikas in from Olympiakos early on in the transfer window, signing the Greek left back for £11.75m to back up Andy Robertson.
Weeks later, the Reds completed a long anticipated move for Thiago Alcantara, paying £20m guaranteed for the elite Spanish playmaker.
A day after the announcement of Thiago, the club completed the signing of Diogo Jota for a reported £41m up front.
The outlet has claimed the Reds have received an offer of £12m for Wilson from Burnley and a £20m offer from Sheffield United for Brewster.
In total the club hope to raise around £50m with the player sales according to Goal.
What RTK has to say
I’m no mathematician but these sales could see us just about breakeven with our summer spending.
It wouldn’t be a bad window at all if we managed to bring in Tsimikas, Thiago and Jota at no net cost.
This is exactly what we expect from Liverpool now: savvy business. The club have been dipping and diving, wheeling and dealing in the transfer market in recent seasons.
The net spend under Jürgen Klopp is laughably low in comparison to his rivals, it looks as though this summer will continue that tradition.
Also, given that none of the departing players were expected to play any significant role in the upcoming campaign, this is doubly good business.
