Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp attended a secret transfer meeting to sign Sofyan Amrabat

According to The Mirror, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp attended a secret transfer meeting to sign Fiorentina midfielder Sofyan Amrabat. The player has attracted much attention following his performances for Morocco at the World Cup in Qatar.

But, as per Foot Mercato (h/t Mirror), the Reds are not in the race to sign the Moroccan international, as he is close to a move to Spanish side Atletico Madrid.

Post the World Cup, the Reds were interested in signing the midfielder. But, it seems like they have been dealt another blow in their quest to bolster that department. We have seen that happen in the summer too when Real Madrid beat us to the signature of Aurelien Tchouameni.

Missing out on Amrabat is not the end of the world though. Speaking in the press conference ahead of the game against Brighton and Hove Albion, Klopp looked deflated when updating that he does not expect any business to be done between now and the end of this month (Liverpool Echo).

If that indeed is the case, Liverpool are running a narrow rope with a big hole below. The spending in the last few years, even with the Champions League has been on a shoestring level, to say the least.

If we miss out on that at the end of this season, one can only dream of the owners splashing the cash from their pockets to help the club make big-money signings in the summer.

It is a situation where things are not looking good, and it almost feels like the club is letting Klopp down. He deserves to get backed with what he has done in the last seven years.

We face Brighton, a team who can pass the ball around our midfield for fun. If the ambition of finishing in the top four is to be ignited, only a win against the Seagulls would suffice. If not the win, then at least an encouraging performance can light some hope.
