Liverpool have reportedly backed an extension of the transfer window, which could see the early deadline scrapped next week.
The Reds had initially supported the earlier closure on the eve of the season, introduced prior to the 2018/19 season.
But according to the Times‘ Chief Sports Report Martyn Ziegler, Liverpool are now in favour of reverting back to the old system.
This comes amid growing support for the measure, and the backing of such a big name is likely to prove crucial.
Premier League clubs will meet next week and could agree to realign with Europe by moving the deadline to September 1.
The Reds were, of course, very quiet in the summer, focusing on the addition of bright young talent.
But still, Jurgen Klopp (as quoted by the Independent) publicly his expressed his frustration with the English model, insisting that it made ‘no sense’ with clubs on the continent able to remain active.
The switch is looking very likely now, so let’s hope managers don’t resume their old complaints that a longer window for incomings causes disruption.
