Liverpool had a fantastic season in 2021-22. But now that summer is here, all eyes will be on what the transfer window has to offer in the Premier League and beyond.

Jurgen Klopp has already strengthened his squad with the signing of highly-rated Fabio Carvalho. The Reds finally secured the youngster after a lengthy pursuit in January.

He won’t be Liverpool’s only newcomer this summer. As the club continues to tinker with what is already a world-class roster. With expected exits to create a place for newcomers.

Julian Ward, who has taken over as sporting director following Michael Edwards’ resignation, has contracts to straighten out as well.

Here’s all you need to know about the next transfer window.

Liverpool’s Summer Transfer Window

The summer window for the Premier League and the EFL is to open on Friday, June 10.

Clubs will be able to conduct their business until the close of the window on Thursday, September 1 at 11 pm BST – this is 26 days after the Premier League‘s opening weekend.

France, Spain, Germany, and Italy will then see it close on September 1, the same as the Premier League.

Divock Origi has already left. And Sadio Mane is expected to follow, with Bayern Munich looming large. While Takumi Minamino and Alex Oxlade-futures Chamberlain’s are also in doubt.

Liverpool will also want to raise finances by finding permanent homes for Nat Phillips and Neco Williams. With sources estimating a combined target of up to £30 million.

The ball is now in James Milner’s court as a soon-to-be free agent with a contract on the table. While Mohamed Salah, Naby Keita, and Roberto Firmino’s existing contracts all expire in 2023.

In terms of new arrivals, Aberdeen right-back Calvin Ramsay is a known target to provide depth behind Trent Alexander-Arnold. While a midfielder is also on the wishlist, as evidenced by interest in Aurelien Tchouameni.

And Mane’s exit would prompt the Reds to look for a new forward in order to maintain the strength in depth that served them so well in 2021-22.

All of this adds up to a hectic summer for Liverpool as they try to put the pieces in place for another successful season.
