In the wake of winning the Champions League last season, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp decided to only make cosmetic changes to his squad for the 2019/20 campaign.
Liverpool-focused Twitter channel @AnfieldWatch tweeted a summary of the Reds’ transfer business, with only three players coming in and seven leaving the club permanently for a fee.
Liverpool 19/20 summer transfer business.

The only newcomer with a confirmed transfer fee was Sepp van den Berg, who signed from Zwolle in Netherlands, with Harvey Elliott’s signing fee undisclosed. Goalkeeper Adrian joined on a free transfer while Andy Lonergan came to the club on a short-term deal.
Danny Ings, Simon Mignolet, Ryan Kent, Rafael Camacho, Ovie Ejaria, Bobby Duncan and George Johnston all recouped transfer fees for the Reds with a combined total of around £48m, according to @Anfield Watch, while the likes of Harry Wilson, Ben Woodburn and Marko Grujic have been loaned out for the season.
These Liverpool fans on Twitter feel that, despite the comparative lack of incomings, it has been a very good transfer window for the Reds:
What’s there to discuss!…genius!

Very good. Next summer I can see us replacing the older players. Grujic coming back to play and a few signings.
