Fabrizio Romano explains why Liverpool have been inactive in January transfer window

Posted by

Fabrizio Romano has claimed that Liverpool’s lack of activity in the January transfer window ultimately boils down to the side’s desire to secure viable, long-term options rather than short-term fixes.

The Reds have, in the eyes of many commentators, a need to furnish themselves with some additions across the midfield and forward departments.

“By the way, they didn’t do any [further] signings in the summer and they are not planning to do anything in January if nothing is going to happen – talking about injuries or bad things around the team,” the Sky Sports journalist spoke on his official YouTube channel.

“Why? Because they want to find players that are for the long-term and not just for six months.

“This is why in January we don’t expect Liverpool to do anything.”

This will certainly be approaching an absolute necessity as the uncertainty over Mo Salah, Sadio Mane and Bobby Firmino’s futures continue in light of their expiring contracts in 2023.

With prior concerns being raised over the average age of our midfield too, we’d expect some movement on our recruitment team’s part come the end of the season when a more thorough analysis of potential transfer options can be made.

It should be noted, of course, that injuries and COVID-19 have exacerbated such issues with our squad devastated by a recent outbreak that forced the closure of the AXA training centre.

Now that, hopefully, the worst has come to pass, we’ll be keeping our fingers crossed that Jurgen Klopp’s men can manage to safely navigate the rest of the season and finish on a high with some silverware.

  1. The lack of signing to compete at the top is seriously flawed. We have a small club mentality. One with an objective just to stay in the premier league.

  2. I completely agree the owners and klopp are both rigid. Klopp is not a serial winner like a don’t or pep or else he wed have pushed for signings. In a matter of weeks we have lost the league title to city and we will soon be out of CL.

    I don’t think we have enough squad depth

  3. Liverpool should sign Luiz Diaz, I strongly believe
    that signing Him would add more strength in our attacking forward.

  4. 😠just dose not make any sense. Get all these player’s being named all the fans get let down again. All we won’t is to be back were we belong. Get the Yanks out get someone who cares about wining.

  5. More excuses from the owners…..always next summer….the rebuild is coming etc etc etc.
    When we know it will be more excuses ie funding Mo’s contract, giving skinny kids a chance…blah blah blah!

    FSG can’t or won’t spend sufficiently to give us a chance of winning the league. Adding players in dribs and drabs to suit finances won’t cut it. They’re wasting Klopps time at the club moving forward
    They should sell up and move on…but they won’t until they’ve rinsed the club for maximum value.

  6. What a ridiculous statement , we are not like the scum , shitty or Chelski . We don’t have unlimited funds like them so we have to buy wisely . We need cover for our African players , but not players like Dembeli who want £500000 a game .
