Liverpool are unlikely to spend vast amounts of money during the forthcoming transfer window with the Reds making big money investments in players over the last two windows.

Jurgen Klopp has made significant improvements to his squad over the course of the last few transfer windows, with those additions proving vital in helping Liverpool challenge for the Premier League title and reach the Champions League final this season.

Those additions include PFA Player of the Year Virgil van Dijk, who has transformed Liverpool’s defence since moving from Southampton for £75million in January 2018, whilst the signings of Alisson, Fabinho, Naby Keita and Xherdan Shaqiri have all added extra quality and depth to Klopp’s squad.

However, Liverpool are reportedly set for a far less active summer transfer window this year, with Klopp thought to be mainly content with his squad ahead of next season, with the Reds only looking to make a few slight tweaks to their squad, according to the Liverpool Echo.

That means that despite reportedly being linked with summer moves for both Juventus forward Paulo Dybala and Ajax defender Matthijs de Ligt, Klopp’s side are unlikely to be making the sort of significant transfer bids needed to sign players of their respective caliber.

Although this maybe slightly disappointing news for Liverpool supporters ahead of the transfer window, it is probably a wise move from the club to not invest too heavily this summer.

Liverpool already have a squad that has proved they can challenge for both domestic and European titles this season, therefore making any massive investments would potentially at this stage only risk upsetting the dynamics within Klopp’s talented squad.

However, Liverpool must be cautious of not adding any further competition for places to their squad, given that Manchester City are likely to improve their squad this summer, with only Chelsea out of the other top six Premier League club’s at the moment unlikely to be investing in their squad this summer due to a transfer ban.

It will be interesting to see who Liverpool do manage to sign this summer, and whether their reported approach of keeping with most of the squad who have performed so well this season will pay of next season, as Klopp’s side look to once again mount a Premier League title challenge.
