Liverpool fans are desperate for movement in the transfer market. The Reds had a disastrous season last time out and there are a couple of areas in dire need of reinforcements. A Liverpool insider has told The Athletic when to expect a lot of transfer business.
Comings and goings
As we head into the transfer window there is plenty to be done.
Liverpool need to raise funds through the sales of a host of players.
Xherdan Shaqiri appears nailed on for an exit.
Whilst Divock Origi’s situation is more complicated with little interest reported.
Meanwhile, Marko Grujic and Harry Wilson look set to end their loan lives with a permanent move away.
Nat Phillips and Neco Williams could reluctantly be sold as they pursue first team football.
On the incoming front, the Reds need to replace Gini Wijnaldum and sign a forward to add depth and competition to the attacking line.
Liverpool insider on transfer business
Some fans are growing concerned and impatient with the lack of movement whilst the likes of Manchester United are making mega-moves for players such as Jadon Sancho.
Speaking to The Athletic, a Liverpool insider explained:
“There was always an acceptance that with the Euros and the ongoing financial impact of COVID on clubs, that a lot of business would happen later in the summer.”
What RTK has to say
It looks as though we could see an element of brinksmanship at play this summer.
The Reds have allegedly rejected a few bids that haven’t met their asking price for certain players.
As the window drags on we could see buying clubs finally stumping up the cash, triggering our own business.
We signed Diogo Jota and Thiago late on last summer, it looks as though we could be in for a repeat.
