  • Darwin Núñes(€75m)

  • Fabio Carvalho(€5.9m)

  • Calvin Ramsey(€4.9m)

  • Arthur Melo (Loan)


  • Sadio Mane (€32m)

  • Neco Williams (€20m)

  • Takumi Minamino (€15m)

  • Divock Origi (Free)


Liverpool usually have a one-in-one-out type of transfer strategy. Sadio Mane, a Liverpool legend, left to pursue a new challenge at Bayern, breaking the iconic Liverpool trident. Darwin Nunez was the marquee signing bought to fill his void. Now, if he can hit the ground running is yet to be seen. He scored on his debut and impressed on his first start, but he then got himself stupidly sent off.

Neco Williams was a big sale, and Calvin Ramsey was brought in to be back up at RB. He’s a young player with potential that Klopp can nurture into a star. However, he’s very inexperienced, and having a quality backup for Trent is crucial as expecting the England full-back to play every game is unrealistic. Williams has shined at Nottingham Forrest, and Liverpool could really use a squad player of his quality.

Takumi Minamino and Divock Origi left with Fabio Carvalho signed to pick up those minutes. He has been played out of position but has adapted well so far and is developing well for his age.

Finally, the signing of Arthur Melo was a bit of a panic buy. The plan was to sign Aurélien Tchouaméni, but then Madrid came in with an offer Liverpool couldn’t match. Then it was reported that Bellingham was the marquee signing penciled in for next summer.

There were unforeseen injuries to Thiago and then Keita and Henderson, which forced the club’s hand. So it was a difficult situation, and a loan signing for a player of Arthur’s quality is not too bad.

Overall this squad is not as strong as last season’s. Mane will be a considerable loss, and we don’t really know how Liverpool will deal with his loss. Overall, it was a modest window for the Reds, and how their new signings develop & make an impact in games remains to be seen.

Final Ranking: B
