Liverpool have just had one of their strongest transfer windows of recent seasons. The Reds spent wisely and sold smartly, strengthening the team with a minimal net spend. Liverpool have been praised for their ‘remarkable’ window but Everton have topped The Mirror’s transfer table.

Liverpool window

Kopites were worried that the Reds wouldn’t do much business in this transfer window.

The powers that be were frequently reminding us that there was no money in the pot due to the financial impact of the global health crisis.

Kostas Tsimikas was brought in after Dejan Lovren’s departure but then it was all quiet on the Edwards front until two superb days.

Thiago Alcantara was signed from Bayern Munich for £20m plus add ons, Diogo Jota was brought in for £41m guaranteed.

The Reds raised funds with the sales of Rhian Brewster, Ki-Jana Hoever and Dejan Lovren among others.

Liverpool ‘remarkable’ window

The Mirror has rounded up each club’s transfer business, giving Liverpool a grade ‘A’ for their window, writing:

“Liverpool’s 7-2 defeat to Aston Villa should not detract from what has been a very impressive summer in the transfer market.

“Jurgen Klopp has bolstered his squad by bringing in three players and keeping the club’s net spend to a minimum.

“Their best piece of business was landing world-class midfielder Thiago in a £25m deal, which has put them in a strong position to retain the title. The fact that Jota and Thiago were both signed for an initial total outlay of £9m is nothing short of remarkable.”

The Mirror may have given Liverpool a grade ‘A’ but noisy neighbours Everton came out on top with an ‘A+’.

What RTK has to say

Fair enough, the Ev have had a belter of a window. However, whether these signings have the staying power or if they’re just enjoying a good start remains to be seen.

If the likes of James and Allan remain fit and firing then fair enough, it’s a great window for the Toffees.

However, the Reds have signed one of the world’s best midfielders – the Ev have gambled on a midfielder many deemed to be a has been.

In their defence, the gamble seems to have paid off. As long as we finish top of the table that matters then they can have the transfer table.
