Liverpool transfer reaction: Some fans shocked by reports the Reds are done

Could Liverpool be done already in this window? That’s the suggestion coming from a report on Thursday. The fans aren’t happy.

Goal report that Liverpool might be done for this window. Ibrahima Konate is in and that’s your lot – no more transfers.

The money just isn’t there to do more, apparently. There are several new contracts on the table, too, presenting a problem when it comes to recruiting.

It’s a bit of a shock if true. Liverpool lost Gini Wijnaldum this summer and it appears there won’t be a replacement. That was unthinkable a year ago.

Add in Liverpool’s struggles in front of goal last season and not bringing in more attacking depth seems foolish. Not to mention the ageing squad – surely the club need to invest in their future?

And yet, apparently, they’re simply going to wait and see what happens next year. To say it’s a risk is an understatement.

Stunning New Away Shirts For EVERY Premier League Team

Look, we’ve written before about how this is an option. Pool the money, save it up, and have a run at Kylian Mbappe or Erling Haaland.

Maybe another big name star becomes available, too, and that opens further doors. But again, it’s a risk.

Everyone wants those players – including clubs with far more money to offer than Liverpool. And if the Reds don’t get them, then what? Back to square one?

And that’s before considering what happens if all goes wrong this season. If the team has a disappointing season – or another injury crisis that forces one – those star players just won’t be interested.

So it won’t be a surprise to see that Liverpool fans didn’t react well to this report.

Now, we have picked out some fairly negative ones here (though, believe me – there are far worse we couldn’t publish) but some were understanding of the club’s position.

What’s clear, however, is that Liverpool are taking a risk. Not just because the plan might fail but because of the incredible backlash if things do go wrong.
