Lack of summer business

This summer the Reds brought Ibrahima Konate on the day the window opened then that was it.

Jürgen Klopp’s side made no further additions after the centre back was signed.

Plenty of players were sold and a raft of players were loaned out. Despite the significant sums raised the club decided against adding more signings.

Many Kopites were left dissatisfied by the window with a number of fans believing we needed to bring in a midfielder and a forward.

Gini Wijnaldum’s departure has left us short staffed in the middle whilst there is a severe lack of depth and competition in the final third.

Liverpool want Marco Asensio

Reports in Spain are claiming that the Reds could move for a man capable of playing as a forward or a midfielder.

The dubious Todo Fichajes has claimed Liverpool want to sign Marco Asensio in January.

The outlet has reported that the Reds maintain an interest in the Spanish 25-year-old with the Real Madrid star keen to relaunch his career.

Michael Edwards is allegedly readying a £30m January bid for the versatile creator Cristiano Ronaldo once named as a potential successor of his.

What RTK has to say

Every other month some site or another links us with Marco Asensio.

Todo Fichajes is particularly unreliable so we’d take this claims with a kilo of salt.

Whilst the Spaniard fits the brief in terms of his age and versatility – he can play on either wing or as a centre midfielder – the Reds aren’t in the habit of making January signings.

We believe any additions to the midfield are more likely to come next summer.
