Liverpool have completed four signings this summer
Liverpool were expected to strengthen the squad this summer and manager Jurgen Klopp issued a a statement of intent in bolstering his squad in the transfer window by completing 4 signings.
He has splashed out over £170 million to secure the signings of Naby Keita from RB Leipzig, Fabinho from Monaco, Xherdan Shaqiri from Stoke City and Alisson Becker from Roma.
The manager is yet to win a silverware since he took over the charge of the Premier League giants and is keen to mount a Premier League title charge in the upcoming season.
The Reds have been tipped as one of the favourites to win the Premier League title in the upcoming season after an excellent transfer window.
Klopp has revealed all the signings was pieced together before suffering a 3-1 defeat to Real Madrid in the Champions League final back in May. He told reporters as quoted by Goal: “The Champions League final had absolutely nothing to do with our transfer business.
“Everything was already fixed and clear what we wanted. All decisions were made to that point already. I think our areas were obvious.
“If Alisson was not on the market, we don’t move for a goalkeeper. He was on the market so we went for it.
“That we wanted to have more options offensively – that was clear long before the final. I think Shaqiri is a fantastic example of how you can do it.
“He ticks different boxes, he can play wide, he can play No. 10, it looks like he can play eight too and that is cool.
“As for Fabinho, we knew a bit longer that Emre [Can] would not extend his contract so Fabinho was clear as a target, but not clear that we would get him.
“Naby was clear. One left, one came in. Phil [Coutinho] left before then Naby came in. It is not the same type of player but it is a similar position at least.”
