Liverpool have been crowned as the Premier League champions of the season after a 30-year wait. However, despite their achievement Jurgen Klopp’s side could face uncertaintanty concerning the summer transfer window.
Reds are likely to spend less money on transfer targets due the club’s financial conditions in the days of the coronavirus.
“A few weeks ago nobody knew if we could play Champions League next season again. Can you count on the money of the Champions League and how much will it be?” Jurgen Klopp explained when speaking about the case and added: “That is all uncertain and that is what we consider because we are not only responsible for the success of the club, we are responsible for all the people at the club and that means everyone who is working here. That is what we try to do.
As long as we don’t know exactly about things, we have to wait.”
Liverpool have already said goodbye to Adam Lallana, Nathaniel Clyne as they have seen their contracts expired. Dejan Lovren left Anfield for Zenit St Petersburg for £11m.
Xherdan Shaqiri is expected to leave the club as well. Even Mohamed Salah is on the list of the possible outs. That came after the Egyptian’s recent comments on his future: “I just want to enjoy today and enjoy the moment. No one knows the future and what will happen. Let’s see what will happen.
But at the moment we win the Champions League, we win the Premier League, I’m happy.
Let’s see what will happen in the future, but I’m very happy to win and achieve those trophies.”
Liverpool are planning to bring a centre-back, with the club eager to strengthen the defence. Meanwhile, Reds are still in negotiations for Bayern Munich midfielder Thiago Alcantara.
No other fresh players are expected this summer as the third possible contact talks are linked with Gini Wijnaldum.
Meanwhile, Klopp is likely to focus on the youngsters Neco Williams, Curtis Jones and Harvey Elliott that could be ready to play more regular football next term.
