Liverpool have officially made their first summer sale as Kamil Grabara joins FC Kobenhavn. The Polish goalkeeper has been on the books for some time.
Liverpool confirmed on Saturday that Kamil Grabara has joined FC Kobenhavn as the Reds’ first summer sale. He’d been at the club for five years, though never appeared in a first-team game.
Grabara did represent the club at several youth levels and did so very well. He earned himself a place in summer pre-season tours and felt like a very solid up-and-coming goalkeeper.
Loans to Huddersfield and, in particular, AGF in Denmark appear to have convinced FCK to sign him. This is his first big shot and earning a place at a club, then.
We wish him all the best.
Liverpool complete Kamil Grabara sale
It looks like this one should add a few million to the transfer budget. Goal’s Neil Joins claims the deal is worth around £3m, plus a 20% sell-on clause.
That’s not exactly a fortune for Liverpool but it’s a decent amount for a player who’s never actually featured for the club. Let alone one who also didn’t have a future here.
The Athletic says Liverpool need to sell before buying more players this summer so that £3m will go a little way to help. Again, not a world of difference but it’s something.
A few more signings like that and Liverpool can build a reasonable war chest, purely from players they don’t use. The likes of Harry Wilson, Marko Grujic and Taiwo Awoniyi could fetch larger sums, after all.
Put all that money towards transfers and it could end up going pretty far. This sale should just be a start, then, as Liverpool look to invest further over the summer.
It’s a decent first step.
