Liverpool have enjoyed a stellar resurgence this season compared to their stagnation during the 2022/23 campaign and this is down to Jurgen Klopp’s diligence in the transfer market.
With the German identifying that his midfield area needed baldy rejigged, out went the likes of Jordan Henderson, Fabinho, James Milner, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Naby Keita during the summer, and he utilised his skills to improve his squad.
Young talent such as Dominik Szoboszlai, Ryan Gravenberch and Alexis Mac Allister have all arrived at Anfield, and they have each made an impressive impact so far, with the trio registering nine goal contributions – four goals and five assists – between them so far this season.
This new midfield trio has helped the Reds win seven of their first ten Premier League matches as they currently occupy fourth place in the table, while the club have also won all three of their Europa League matches so far this season.
Could this be another season where Klopp wins more silverware for the club? It is looking promising so far and with the January transfer window fast approaching, there could be another one or two additions to the squad.
The most unexpected addition to Klopp’s midfield during the summer was the signing of Japanese international Wataro Endo, who cost approximately £16.2 million and came from Stuttgart.
In order to fill the defensive void left by Fabinho’s summertime departure, the manager was anxious to sign Romeo Lavia or Moises Caicedo, but in the end, it was Endo who was brought to Anfield.
The 30-year-old is obviously not a long-term solution for the defensive midfield position, and this may force Liverpool to revisit the transfer market in the upcoming months in an attempt to ultimately find a more reliable alternative for that job.
