Kaveh Solhekol: This is where Liverpool could strengthen in summer

Sky Sports journalist Kaveh Solhekol revealed that Liverpool could make signings this summer but it was connected to players potentially leaving Anfield.

Jim White asked the Sky Sports reporter during Sky’s new Transfer Show whether he expected the Reds to sign anyone before deadline day and he responded by sharing what he knew.

Solhekol stated that according to the information he had received from Sky’s reporters in Liverpool, the club wouldn’t be making any Galactico type signings.

However, he quickly added the Reds may sign a new right-back if Nathaniel Clyne left, maybe a new goalkeeper if Simon Mignolet exited and that they could recruit a new left-back considering Alberto Moreno has departed.

“The information we have from our reporters in Liverpool are that Liverpool won’t be making any Galactico type signings this summer,” said Solhekol on Sky Sports News (Friday, July 5th, 19:53).

“What they may need to sign is a back-up left-back as Moreno has left, maybe a back-up right-back if Nathaniel Clyne leaves and maybe a back-up goalkeeper if Simon Mignolet leaves.

“Lots of ifs and buts, but no Galactico type signings for Liverpool this summer.”


Solhekol wouldn’t rule out the idea of Liverpool signing a player for their senior squad in the coming weeks, and surely that’s a positive sign. However, it doesn’t sound like the Reds are considering any high-profile names or expensive signings and that will be a bit of a buzzkill for some. Also given that Mignolet and Clyne aren’t guaranteed to exit Anfield, then perhaps the Reds will only consider signing one player in the form of a new left-back. It’s easy to understand why Jurgen Klopp isn’t set to be busy in the transfer market, as the Reds are coming off a successful 2018/19 campaign. Liverpool beat Tottenham 2-0 in the Champions League final and only narrowly missed out on winning the Premier League. The Reds lost only one league game in their latest campaign and racked up 97 points; which means they only lost the title to Man City by a single point. After a season like that, Liverpool know there isn’t too much they need to do to improve their squad in order to be ready to go again.
