Liverpool’s business in the transfer window looks to be over.
Jurgen Klopp has spent £170m to bring Fabinho, Naby Keita, Xherdan Shaqiri and Alisson Becker to Anfield. The German has strengthened Liverpool’s areas of weaknesses, and the Reds look well equipped to challenge Manchester City for the Premier League title next year. Despite links to both Nabil Fekir and Christian Pulisic, the Reds’ spending is more than likely over until January.
While first-team signings might be out the question, Klopp will still have funds to use in the final week of the transfer window. Danny Ings is set to leave for Crystal Palace for around £25m while Danny Ward signed for Leicester in July for approximately £13m. With a host of youngsters leaving Tottenham this summer, Liverpool would be wise to lure Marcus Edwards to Anfield.
Valued at £450k by Transfermarkt, the 19-year-old joined the Lilywhites at the age of eight and quickly progressed through the ranks; signing his first professional contract back in 2016. He joined Norwich on loan in January but made just one appearance before returning to North London. Edwards is now reportedly looking to leave the club and Liverpool should offer him the chance to join their development squad.
Spurs manager, Mauricio Pochettino, once compared the Englishman to Lionel Messi – a testament to his excellent dribbling ability. While he hasn’t been able to put it all together at Spurs, a change of scenery could be just what he needs. After watching youngsters such as Trent Alexander-Arnold and Joe Gomez progress quickly to the first-team, Liverpool would be an attractive option.
With Bayer Leverkusen also thought to be interested, Liverpool must move quickly to secure the promising winger.
