“We will attack the title, not defend it” this was the thoughts of Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp who is clearly not worried about the lack of transfer funds to add to his squad for next season.
And with the myriad of youth talent coming through the ranks and add to that the players that are due to return from their loan spells, it is easy to see why Jurgen is not worried about lack of transfer activity this summer.
Liverpool have two players out of contract this summer with right back Nathaniel Clyne already gone and Adam Lallana set to follow at the end of the season but with the emergence of Neco Williams & Curtis Jones this season their places have already been taken.
Xheridan Shaqiri & Dejan Lovren look set to leave Anfield in search of regular first team football with Shaqiri only amassing a total of 174 minutes of Premier league action this season and Lovren 777 minutes however Klopp again is more likely to look internally for replacements then externally.
Dutch pairing Ki Jan Hoever and Sepp Van den Berg will both be vying to replace the void left by Lovren while Fabinho can also play in the centre back position if needed with plenty of cover in midfield already at the club plus Marko Grujic looking is likely to return after his loan spell at Hertha Berlin.
Harvey Elliott has been hugely impressive ever since he joined from Fulham last season and with Shaqiri moving on this should give him even more of a chance to shine next season as he looks to push on with the next stage of his development.
Some may worry about the lack of quality in the frontline if any of the famous front three of Mane, Salah or Firmino is out but yet again Liverpool do have a couple of players out on loan that would hope that their form while away is enough to convince Klopp that they can be relied when called upon next season.
Harry Wilson has scored 7 goals in the Premier league this season for struggling Bournemouth while Rhian Brewster has bagged an impressive 6 goals in only 14 appearances for Swansea City in the Championship and with Origi & Minamino also capable to deputise, lack of fire power should not be an issue.
Paul Glatzel & Joe Hardy will also be hoping they can push on next season as they look to step up from the u23s and into the first team setup and I would not be surprised to see either of them in a League cup line up.
So while there may be a lack of transfer activity there certainly will not be a lack of talent available to Jurgen Klopp in the coming season as he aims to attack the title once more.
