A number of Liverpool supporters are relieved that the Reds didn’t sign James Ward-Prowse this summer amid a revelation that they were interested in the midfielder.
Jurgen Klopp was expected to sign a replacement for Gini Wijnaldum in the summer transfer window, but no such move materialised.
The Dutchman was an influential player for Liverpool over a five-year period, so there is a clear risk in not signing anybody to fill the void he left behind.

These Reds fans took to Twitter to show their relief, believing that the midfielder isn’t good enough for Klopp’s side – perhaps given that his Southampton team finished a lowly 15th in the Premier League last season.

“What else does he bring to the table?“
“I looked at Jennifer Lawrence and…“
“Then Southampton wanted money for him and we decided not to“
“Who are they trying to convince with them stories?”
“What is the point now”
