Report: The real reason behind Liverpool not spending in the winter window revealed
Back in November 2022, FSG declared that Liverpool were on the verge of a takeover but three months after that proposal nothing has changed.
FSG’s true feelings were underlined by a January window in which Jurgen Klopp was allowed to address just one of two glaring weaknesses in his squad on the basis of further funds not being made available until the next financial year.
The Reds only signed two strikers this season. First the Uruguayan international Darwin Nunez, and the second the Holland international Cody Gakpo. But the two signings are not enough to compete at the top level.
Why do Liverpool fans want the takeover from FSG?
The Reds are not close to falling foul of the Financial Fair Play rule and remain rude and healthy financially, so it can be only the owner’s desire to limit the spending.
The club’s recent financial accounts also opened some fans’ eyes. Accounts show debt repayment being prioritized over making cash available for transfers.
The Reds need fresh players especially in the middle of the park to create some kind of impact in the opposition half.
Enzo Fernandez was one of the main targets for the Reds in the winter transfer window. The young Argentine had a Word Cup campaign to be remembered. He was awarded as the best young player of the tournament in Qatar.
Enzo was looking for a new club. The Merseyside were also interested in him but due to no financial pull in the transfer window, the Argentine moved to Stamford Bridge.
The Reds simply only need to shake off the burden of infrastructure project costs inexplicably paid for through short-term debt, as well as their current owner’s desire to keep operational debt at a minimum.
And FSG needs to back the manager otherwise Klopp won’t be able to bring the Merseyside club back among the European elite group.
