Liverpool could finish up this summer’s transfer window with a few final touches to their squad rebuild amid speculations of Manu Kone and a center-back signing.
We are officially in the final weeks of the transfer window and Liverpool have done decent business, to say the least.
But once we look into their plans for the potential transfers they aimed at, it feels like the Reds didn’t get the players they planned on getting.
The case of Caicedo and Lavia are the prime examples of the same. Moreover, they missed out on the potential transfer of Thuram, Kone, and Amrabat, who were considered top of their priority list.
As per BILD’s Christian Falk, the Frenchman returned from injury and his asking price has dropped as a result.
But this comes after a journalist claimed that the Reds wouldn’t be signing any more players for this summer.
Moreover, Klopp has given a hint that they wouldn’t be signing any more players in his latest press conference.
Liverpool ending the transfer window without any signing?
As per reports, Liverpool could get Kone for just £30m as compared to their previous evaluation of around £60m. This is a major discount, considering the quality of the player.
The Borussia Mönchengladbach player is capable of playing as a number 6 or an 8. He makes perfect sense if Liverpool go and get the player.
He is the most efficient way of adding depth and, in a way, replacing Fabinho. Moreover, he is a similar player to Romeo Lavia and at 22, he has plenty of time to get better.
Meanwhile, they might also look into the defence and could turn to David Hancko of Feyenoord. The 25-year-old has been linked to Liverpool and could cost up to £40m. Moreover, it would be a reasonably good deal with such a short window time left.
Being left-footed, Hancko would be equally adept as Robertson or Van Dijk cover. At 25, he still has some improvement to do but would be ready to contribute straight away.
