New signings ‘unlikely’ without duo exit & latest Norwich team news – Liverpool FC Roundup

Liverpool start the 2021/22 season tomorrow! Bring it on. In the meantime, don’t expect a flurry of transfer activity in the coming weeks at Anfield!


No move for Neuhaus…or anyone else?!

Remember all the talk of the Reds signing Florian Neuhaus from Borussia Monchengladbach earlier this summer?

If you hadn’t already guessed, that’s now off the table.

The midfielder has been told he has to stay this year and play a part in getting ‘Gladbach into the Champions League – and in any case, journalist Florian Plettenburg says, Liverpool never made an offer.

Interest from Jurgen Klopp was there, but no bids were forthcoming.

Moreover, James Pearce of the Athletic says that unless both Origi and Shaqiri are sold, the Reds won’t sign a forward this summer, either, as they have no space in the squad.

“As things stand further signings are unlikely. If Shaqiri goes I wouldn’t expect him to be replaced as Elliott is viewed as being able to fill that gap. If Shaqiri and Origi were both sold then I think they would look to add an attacker,” he said.
