Liverpool had yet another strong transfer window over the summer. The Reds once again bought low and sold high, bringing in some top talents and cashing in on some deadwood. There was one long linked target the club chose not to pursue. Liverpool could reconsider a move for Ismaila Sarr as he’s showcased his versatility this season.
Liverpool transfer window
Going into the window we needed to find cover for Andy Robbo – the club signed Kostas Tsimikas.
We also needed to add some more variety and invention to the midfield – Michael Edwards brought in Thiago Alcantara.
Jürgen Klopp also needed some quality in depth to cover the front three – the Reds signed Diogo Jota from Wolves.
Despite the decision not to replace Dejan Lovren coming back to bite us, it was a pretty successful window all round.

Liverpool opt against Ismaila Sarr
Liverpool were consistently linked with Ismaila Sarr throughout the transfer window.
The Liverpool ECHO reported in October that the Watford wide man was on a three man shortlist along with Diogo Jota and Jonathan David.
The same article claimed that the Hornets were demanding £40m for the Senegalese winger, a figure the Reds deemed to be far too steep. Instead, Michael Edwards paid a similar sum for a player with more solid Premier League experience in Diogo Jota.
Liverpool could reconsider Ismaila Sarr
Watford have had a relatively strong start to life in the Championship.
The Hornets are currently fifth in the table, seven points off league leaders Reading.
Liverpool could reconsider a move for Ismaila Sarr after his strong start showcased his versatility.
The Senegalese forward has started four of his five games this season as a striker, in the Premier League he was most often deployed as a winger.
We know that Jürgen Klopp rates versatility highly, he likes to work with a small squad which means he needs the squad to be able to fill in in a number of positions when the situation demands.
Given that Sarr has shown that he can impress through the middle as well as out wide, Liverpool may reconsider a move for the forward if his price tag drops.
