‘One Melwood insider believes there could a transfer bubbling under that “could blow away supporters”,’ claims respected Echo journalist Ian Doyle.
Who, what, where, why or… how.. Doyle has not made us privy to – but for now, it’s something to cling on to – considering the lack of developments in any proper deals since we secured Mo Salah.
The Egyptian remains the only major signing of the summer, with Liverpool finding our pursuits of Naby Keita, Virgil van Dijk and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain stalling.
Jurgen Klopp is desperate to add sheer quality and not average quantity to fill up a squad – so we can expect this kind of deal will cost more money and take longer to complete.
Fans want big-name arrivals, but are now having to deal with the frustration of going after them – as selling clubs are obviously desperate to keep hold, or at least play hard-ball.
We have no idea if there is a secret, exciting target set to arrive, as Doyle’s source suggests – but are happy to trust Klopp and his vision for next season.
Having some summer friendlies to watch soon will at least break the monotony of the transfer window!
