Fabrizio Romano’s transfer update explains why Liverpool still haven’t signed anyone yet

Posted by

It’s June 24 and Chelsea have seemingly snapped up an academy’s worth of young talent.

Meanwhile Arne Slot’s Liverpool remains intriguingly quiet in the summer market.

Fabrizio Romano has weighed in on the situation, informing supporters that the Reds, among other clubs, are waiting to see how the dominoes fall in the current window.

“I think because of the Euros. I don’t think anything will happen before the end of the Euros for Ivan Toney. Also because he’s 100% focused on the English national team and also Brentford. They wait to see what happens in terms of proposals. But at the moment, nothing is concrete on the table yet,” the CaughtOffside columnist spoke on The Debrief podcast.

“I think many clubs in England, we mentioned Arsenal, it’s the same also for Liverpool and many others are waiting to see what happens in terms of [transfer] dominoes also after the Euros.

“So it will take probably some time before we know what’s going to happen for the future of Ivan Toney. But For sure, the interest is still there for many clubs. And I think around July, August, things could happen for Toni because his desire is to move to an important club. With respect to Brentford, he wants to try some different kind of opportunity.”

The full extent of variables like the circumnavigating of PSR and the potential impact on the market and player valuations remains to be seen.

Patience can be a virtue for Liverpool

Where will Liverpool find value in the market this summer?

We’re entirely supportive of Richard Hughes and the recruitment department’s plans for the summer.

As appealing as options like Yankuba Minteh, Crysencio Summerville, and Leny Yoro are, waiting for “the right man” has often served Liverpool well in windows past.

Provided, of course, we don’t wait too long for a cue to enter the market and bolster the squad before the 2024/25 campaign!

With Hughes coming highly recommended by Michael Edwards (now CEO of Football), you can rest assured that any new incoming will have been identified by the same rigorous processes that landed the likes of Mo Salah and Gini Wijnaldum during the peak Jurgen Klopp years.

  1. FSG standard behaviour I wonder !!!

    Pretend to be doing big business, argue over 4-5 million in a transfer for 50-60 million and the end up doing Thiago injury signings and with no time for the squad to bed in

    Then another season wasted as we finish outside of Champ League and lose out on £80m champs league money. Existing players want more money to stay without champions league games.

    Its all false economy

    You saved £60m last year on salary bill (no Ox, Milner, Kieta, Hendo, firminio)
    Now you will thankfully say bye to (Thiago, Salah, Marip and Adrian) another £50m salary saved and maybe £150m for Salah
    You saved £120m on the last min transfer that fell through
    And let’s say another £120m transfer kitty this year
    So without selling Trent Allison Diaz each for £75 and the salary savings (so excluding )
    You should have £500m to spend before net spend

    Come on FSG , get stuff done quick
