Here Is The Easy Money-Making Trick Everyone Is Talking About! Learn More Here!
Jurgen Klopp has since insisted there will be no new arrivals at Anfield before the deadline which is in two weeks’ time.
However, with the Reds experiencing something of an injury crisis and Darwin Nunez set for a spell on the sidelines following his rash red card against Crystal Palace on Monday night, Klopp may well be tempted to dip into the market again after all.
With the Reds looking light in central midfield and Diogo Jota’s injury-enforced absence further limiting Klopp’s forward options, the club may well be considering late reinforcements in the window.
Here are Liverpool’s potential incomings and outgoings before the transfer window slams shut in a fortnight’s time.
Incomings – 3
With Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Curtis Jones already injured heading into Liverpool’s season opener with Fulham, a hamstring strain for Thiago then saw Klopp’s midfield malaise worsen. But despite seemingly being made to rue failure to land Tchouameni at the start of the summer, Klopp insisted there is no need to panic – or panic buy.
“It’s easy for us to bring a midfielder in, it’s not so easy to bring the right midfielder in – for money reasons and contractual reasons,” Klopp told Sky Sports. “It’s because it’s 2022 and people have contracts for four, five, six years – and that’s why we have to be calm and solve the problems with the boys we have.”
While it remains unlikely the Reds will recruit a midfielder over the next two weeks, there’s a possibility Liverpool may be working on something behind the scenes. According to 90min, the Reds are one of a number of teams closely monitoring Brighton’s Moises Caicedo while reports in Italy have recently claimed AC Milan contract rebel Ismael Bennacer could also head to Anfield if the Serie A champions don’t bow to his demands.
Nunez’s suspension and Jota’s injury have seen Liverpool also left light up top and Klopp with something of a selection headache. Again, it seems unlikely the Reds will rush into moving for some temporary cover in that area, however, according to Fabrizio Romano, Villarreal hotshot Yeremy Pino is an attacking option who has been heavily scouted by Liverpool spies.
Outgoings – 4
With Klopp having lost Mane and already trimmed his squad of the fringe players deemed surplus to requirements, it also remains unlikely that Liverpool will let any big names go over the coming weeks. Despite that, a number of youngsters are expected to depart on loan.
Sepp van den Berg, who spent last season in the Championship with Preston North End, may once again benefit from regular game-time elsewhere, while the likes of promising youngsters Paul Glatzel, Max Woltman and Jake Cain may be encouraged to develop at lower league clubs. Cain himself recently opened up on his frustrations of not featuring in Liverpool’s pre-season this summer, while expressing his eagerness to test himself elsewhere.
The young midfielder, who impressed on loan at Newport County last season, told Goal: “I can’t lie, I was disappointed… I need to go on loan again. I need men’s football, and I feel now that I’ll be ready to hit the ground running when the opportunity comes – I know that I’m ready.”
Another name who was expected to potentially depart for pastures new this summer was Nat Phillips. However, with Joel Matip and Ibrahima Konate out injured, and Joe Gomez being eased back into action, the centre-back started against Crystal Palace on Monday night and is likely to be required as continued cover going forward.
