Liverpool are known for their business savvy. Under FSG the club has gone from rags to riches. From the brink of administration to record profits. Clever transfer maneuvers have been key to the club’s financial success. This summer could see a Michael Edwards masterstroke if reports of interest in Ben Davies are true.
Ben Davies arrival
The Reds suffered a tumultuous campaign last time out.
An unprecedented injury crisis in the centre of defence derailed the Reds’ title charge.
Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip were all ruled out for the season.
The boss called up Nat Phillips and Rhys Williams from the academy whilst Fabinho and Jordan Henderson dropped in to help out.
Ben Davies was signed in the winter window from Preston but the 25-year-old didn’t make a single appearance for the Reds following the move.
Interest in Ben Davies
We could well see the defender leave before he makes a competitive showing for Jürgen Klopp.
According to The Mail there is plenty of interest in Ben Davies.
The defender has allegedly caught the eye of Bournemouth, Celtic and Sheffield United.
The Blades are said to have submitted a loan enquiry which was swiftly turned down.
Michael Edwards masterclass
We could see a Michael Edwards masterclass if the player is sold.
The Reds paid just £1.6m for the defender in February.
We expect that the club would be able to make a significant profit on this figure should he be allowed to go.
He was a leading Championship defender set to leave on a free before we swooped in.
Michael Edwards bringing him in at a snip only to sell him for a profit a few months later to boost our transfer kitty would be an absolute masterclass.
