Jurgen Klopp and Michael Edwards believe that their replacement for Georginio Wijnaldum may already be present within the current squad, according to The Times’ Paul Joyce.
Wijnaldum left Liverpool in the summer, as he pursued a move to French giants PSG on a free transfer ahead of the 2021/22 league campaign.
Jurgen Klopp’s side finished third in the Premier League table last term, and their supporters will be eager to see them find a suitable replacement for Wijnaldum to help improve on that finish.
But Joyce has stated that Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has enjoyed his first uninterrupted pre-season since signing for the club back in 2017, and the club may opt to turn to players like the England international instead of a new signing.
Plenty of Liverpool supporters took to social media to react to this transfer update, with many of the Anfield faithful being left frustrated at the club’s reluctance to find a new signing in the transfer market this summer.
Take a look at the best of the reaction from The Anfield Talk Twitter account, who shared Joyce’s update….
Reds fans fume at transfer update
“Breaking: FSG won’t spend any money because they need money to buy new personalised yacht.”
“Gini a player who never missed a game yeah, let’s replace him with Ox who’s renowned to having injuries every season. Yep smart.”
“Not impressed. Showed speed and enthusiasm, but very poor football-wise. lost every ball he touched, made very bad long balls, every pass put teammates in trouble. This is just not Liverpool quality.”
“No. Not good enough. Would not make any of our rivals teams.”
“This club will be the death of me.”
“Would be such an unnecessary risk. It is more likely that Keita and Ox will get injured than that they stay fit.”
“He can’t replace Gini’s availability.”
“I give up man.”
