Liverpool fans’ frustrations with the club’s transfer business continued after no more signings were added in the final days, with some calling it ‘nothing short of an embarrassment’.
The Reds only signed one player in Ibrahima Konate from RB Leipzig back in May, but according to Neil Jones at goal.com, interest in the likes of Jarrod Bowen, Harvey Barnes and Ismaila Sarr was real.
However, after the sales of Harry Wilson and Xherdan Shaqiri, the club decided keeping only Takumi Minamino and Divock Origi was sufficient back-up to the first-choice forwards.
Origi has never hit the heights anticipated in 2014 when he was signed from Lille, despite some memorable moments, mustering just two Premier League starts last season and not a single top flight goal.
Minamino’s experience in the Premier League was summed up in his loan spell with Southampton last season- scoring only two goals.
Liverpool have started this campaign well with two wins and a draw against Chelsea, but whether they’ve done enough in the market to compete for the duration of the season remains to be seen.
Liverpool fans unhappy with incomings
These Reds fans took to Twitter to show their unhappiness at the lack of signings, with one fan claiming it to be an ’embarrassment’.
“What a joke. no offense to Divock and Taki tho”
“It’s just an excuse”
“Nothing short of an embarrassment Origi and Minamino are lower half premier league/championship calibre players at best lol”
“This is like rubbing salt to the wounds. I won’t complain if James Pearce and other journalists just straight up tell us the truth that the club is broke and owners won’t spend a single penny of their own. Why lie every year. Have some integrity at least.”
