The entire summer the line coming from the club and journalists on the patch has been that we’ll be doing minimal business. The one recurring link to a big transfer (Pepe) has been dismissed strongly by the club. I’m pretty convinced that at this point other than any further additions to the youth setup we won’t be doing anything else. I know a lot of kidology goes with this stuff but at some point I feel like we have to believe what they’ve been saying for two months.Looking at our signings last season, Fabinho announced right after CL Final, Keita was already signed season before and Shaqiri and Alisson came around this time in July.
Pretty sure Klopp would want any signings who he wouldn’t class as a pure and simple back up eg a left back, in now that almost all the players are back in training.
I really can’t see money being the issue regarding the lack of signings as I’m certain the Club would pony up a few extra million to bring someone in as early as possible if Klopp wants them in. Particularly given how good our transfer business has been in the last two years.
Makes me think that either an announcement is imminent or the player(s) Klopp wants has been playing in the Copa America or the AFCON and so wouldn’t be back training yet anyway.
