Just how much profit did Liverpool make over the course of the 2021/22 transfer window? We have a look at the available numbers.
Liverpool made a total of six player sales for cash in this transfer window, though that doesn’t make up all of their income. They also secured some loan fees – the only significant one was for Ben Davies, however.
The Mirror says Liverpool landed £500k from Sheffield United to take Davies. That’s a small start, then.
The first proper transfer, though, was selling Kamil Grabara to FC Kobenhavn. Liverpool got a reported £3m upfront for the Pole, though that could rise.
One other minor sale was sending Liam Millar to FC Basel. The Canadian nets Liverpool a fairly modest £1.3m.
Harry Wilson departed for Fulham not long after that. It would turn out to be Liverpool’s biggest sale of the window, bringing in £12m.
One final sale, then, and the most significant. Xherdan Shaqiri joined Lyon for £9.5m. Shaqiri was the only player of the bunch to play a significant role for Liverpool and was in fact the only one who was there last season.
All in all, Liverpool brought in a reported £43.3m this summer, through six sales and a loan deal.
How much profit then?
A fairly simple one, this. Liverpool only signed one player and it was all the way back in March.
So overall, Liverpool made a reported £7.3m in profit in the transfer window this summer.
