Liverpool FC transfer news: BBC journalist does not believe Jurgen Klopp will spend big in the summer

BBC journalist David Ornstein claims Liverpool will not spend big in the summer and are looking at a couple of signings (h/t Metro).

The Reds signed four players in the previous summer window with Alisson joining for a then world-record fee before Chelsea broke it with the signing of Kepa Arrizabalaga.

Naby Keita and Fabinho also joined for huge sums while Virgil van Dijk was signed from Southampton more than a season ago.

The report claims that the Reds will not spend more than the £13m they paid for Xherdan Shaqiri on any player in the summer.

A full-back and a striker required at Anfield

Ornstein (h/t Metro) further claimed that Jurgen Klopp will sign a back-up left-back and a striker.

The Metro adds that Nathaniel Clyne and Alberto Moreno are set to leave the club in the summer, and the Reds need cover for Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andy Robertson.

English striker Daniel Sturridge is also expected to leave once the season is over, and Klopp will move for a striker, according to the report.

The report adds that the manager doesn’t want an out-and-out striker but a versatile forward who can play across the front-line.

The Reds have seen Divock Origi’s rise in recent weeks and the Belgian has played a big role for us this season.

Another star in the making is Rhian Brewster, and the youngster should get some games for the first-team next season after recovering from a serious injury.
