If Twitter and Fabrizio Romano are to believed, we could be seeing some movement in the way of transfer business at Anfield in the next few days.
This comes after the Italian journalist, associated with Sky Sports and The Guardian (among others), and supposedly a specialist in transfers, responded to an inquisitive Reds fan on Twitter on Wednesday.
I hope to give you soon! They didn’t signed anyone yet so… let’s see on next days! 😉 and enjoy your 🏆!

Now, of course, pinch of salt, maybe even a barrel of it, but it’s at least something to read into – whether it’s got any factual truth to it is obviously up for conjecture though.
Jürgen Klopp has already made the £1.3 million signing of young, defensive prospect Sepp Van den Berg from PEC Zwollw, but his arrival – while promising – is not necessarily the kind of arrival some have been hoping for.
With back-up full-backs on either flank seemingly a must (particularly to deputise for Andy Robtertson) plus potentially a new goalkeeper and the desire to strengthen the Reds’ attack, fans are waiting with bated breath to see if the club are going to make a high-profil addition in this window.
So far this summer, we’ve heard – in no particular order of likelihood – the names of Memphis Depay, Nicolas Pépé, Ousmane Dembélé, Bruno Fernandes, Kylian Mbappé, and Junior Firpo (among many, many others) being linked with the Reds.
Time will tell how, when, why, and if, the European Champions add to their already star-studded squad, though the two main lines of thought seem to be:
1. The team is already ‘complete’, low-profile signings will be targeted to flesh out the depth.
2. Klopp needs to capitalise on winning the Champions League, and nearly going all the way in the top-flight, by strengthening while reputation is sky-high.
Where do you fall, Reds? The former, the latter, or somewhere in-between?
