Liverpool are busy at work during the 2021/22 transfer window. Here are all of their confirmed deals so far.

2021/22 transfer window at Liverpool

Signings

Ibrahima Konate – RB Leipzig for £36m

Just the one signing so far. Liverpool paid RB Leipzig £36m, per Sky Sports, to sign French centre-back Ibrahima Konate.

He looks like a fantastic talent and is one who should be both a short-term and long-term option. It’s hard to see much wrong with this one, in truth.

Departures

Gini Wijnaldum – Paris Saint-Germain for free

The biggest departure this summer will undoubtedly be Gini Wijnaldum. He leaves at the end of his contract after a magnificent five years at the club and is undoubtedly a club legend.

The Dutchman joins PSG for the next few years.

Ozan Kabak – Schalke 04 (end of loan)

Ozan Kabak won’t return to Liverpool this summer. His loan deal ended as the Reds opted not to make things permanent.

He’s a fantastic young defender and one we might just see again down the line.

Kamil Grabara – FC Kobenhavn for £3m

The first summer sale sees Polish goalkeeper Kamil Grabara leave for the Danish capital. Liverpool received around £3m, per the Liverpool Echo, as well as 20% of a future fee.

Liam Millar – FC Basel for £1.3m

Liam Millar never got a chance with Liverpool, though did make a debut in 2020. £1.3m is a decent enough fee for an academy player who still has plenty to prove.

Marko Grujic – FC Porto for £10.5m

Marko Grujic departs after five-and-a-half years on the books and for a relatively small £10.5m fee. He wasn’t going to get many games for Liverpool this season, though, and it did feel like the right time.

Taiwo Awoniyi – Union Berlin for £6.5m

A decent £6.5m fee for Taiwo Awoniyi, considering he never played a minute for Liverpool. He looks like a decent player but never had a real chance with the Reds.

Harry Wilson – Fulham for £12m

£12m isn’t the kind of fee we expected Harry Wilson to go for – we thought it would be nearer £20m. But another year in the Championship seemed to hurt his value.

It is a shame as Wilson often appeared to have the talent to play a role with Liverpool. Instead, he never got an opportunity.

Xherdan Shaqiri – Lyon for £9.5m

Xherdan Shaqiri moves to France for £9.5m, bringing a three-year Liverpool spell to an end. There are definitely some very fond memories – we wish him all the best.

Loans

Sepp van den Berg – Preston North End

Sepp van den Berg rejoins Preston for the upcoming season. He spent the second half of the previous campaign with the club.

We considered that to be a very successful loan spell and it’s a smart move to follow it on again.

Paul Glatzel – Tranmere Rovers

It surprised us to see Paul Glatzel drop all the way down to League Two. Still, he finally gets a taste of consistent senior football and that can’t be a bad thing.

We’re excited to see how he does.

Leighton Clarkson – Blackburn Rovers

Leighton Clarkson follows in Harvey Elliott’s footsteps by joining Rovers for the season. He’s a midfielder with plenty of talent and, hopefully, this deal proves the making of him.

Ben Davies – Sheffield United

This deal effectively guarantees Liverpool profit on Ben Davies. That’s definitely a bonus, given they unfortunately haven’t gotten anything out of him on the pitch.

Ben Woodburn – Hearts

An interesting one and we see it as a final chance for Ben Woodburn. Unlike the other loans, this one is only until January, at which points the three parties will reassess.
