Liverpool fans lament club’s summer transfer plans

With Liverpool seemingly not coming close to signing any of the transfer targets supporters want, social media has been full of frustration of late.

Reds fans are desperate for this to be a pivotal summer in the transfer market, with Jurgen Klopp in charge and hoping to mount a return to the Champions League next season.

The club are being linked with many top players, but time and time again, those reports are frustratingly being denied.

The Liverpool Echo‘s James Pearce reports Liverpool won’t be pursuing a move for Germany left-back Jonas Hector, instead the club are “looking for a young left-back who will grow and develop under the guidance of Klopp.”

With youngster Ben Chilwell seemingly Klopp’s first-choice target, an unproven player yet to make his Premier League football to his Premier League debut, supporters have started to vent their anger at the current situation.

Chilwell, Piotr Zielinski, Sadio Mane and Mahmoud Dahoud are instead names as the Reds’ targets, and not exactly the proven quality fans feel the club need to sign to prevent another mid-table finish.

Loris Karius has already been signed, as well as Joel Matip and Marko Grujic, but more reinforcements are much-needed between now and August.

Klopp though should be trusted in the transfer market, but fans seems skeptical of the owners still. Mind, the transfer window hasn’t even opened yet…

Here is how social media has been reacting to the situation, with some supporters more positive than others:

If we can’t get a Leicester reserve to challenge the clown Moreno then it’s a Hull player. The big boys will be quaking. Klopp looking as clueless as Rodgers.

Jason Rowlands

Can’t understand this tbh. We could easily bid for Hector, Ricardo Rodriguez, they wouldn’t be much more than either of these and are far more proven.

We are a club that targets Gotze and ropes in Townsend. That’s us in the transfer market.

We are never going to compete for the premier league why we have a transfer committee.

Truth is it is all still guess work. The club seems to be very tight lipped this summer. Either that or nothing is happening at all.


Not a bad window but not exactly a good one either which would be disappointing because we now actually have a top class manager.


Once we lost out on europe our window was always gonna be uninspiring. We don’t need a big squad for a domestic season so once again we’ll be “rebuilding for the future” with more outs than in.
