The Reds are said to be happy with their current crop of players following three new arrivals this summer, although nothing has been completely ruled out yet for more money to be spent
Liverpool have ensured that their top targets have been secured this summer and, after focusing all of their attention on bringing three signings into the club, they have stressed that no more fresh faces will be walking through the doors this summer.
The Reds said goodbye to Sadio Mane this week after he completed a move to Bayern Munich, and reports have suggested that, despite rumours, a deal for Marco Asensio will not be pursued for now. However, Jurgen Klopp’s side are ‘ready’ to take advantage of Matthijs de Ligt’s contract stalemate with Juventus.

Reds ‘ready’ to exploit De Ligt contract
Having been linked with a move for Mathhijs de Ligt earlier this year, the latest reports have once again mentioned that Liverpool remain interested in the Netherlands international following the news that Juventus are looking to offload him this summer.
According to Italian outlet Corriere dello Sport, via the Liverpool ECHO, Juventus have failed to convince De Ligt to sign a new contract to stay in Turin and the Reds are ready to exploit the contract impasse.
De Ligt is said to be the highest paid player in the Juventus squad and that they do not want to pay him the same amount again. He is thought to be on an annual salary of €8m, which equates to around £132,000 per week.

Asensio move would be ‘really difficult’
Liverpool have also been linked with a move for Marco Asensio this summer after it was revealed that the Real Madrid winger is looking to move on from the Santiago Bernabeu as he goes in search of more regular game time, with Jurgen Klopp being an admirer of the Spaniard.
However, the Reds have insisted that they will not be spending any more money this summer after already signing Fabio Carvalho, Darwin Nunez and Calvin Ramsay, while they also possess Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino, Luis Diaz and Diogo Jota in the forward positions.
As well as this, transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, via the Express, believes that it would be “really difficult” for Asensio to move to Anfield this summer, although the Reds could come back to the situation should they change their mind towards the end of the window.
Liverpool defender completes exit
Liverpool defender Billy Koumetio has completed a season-long loan switch to Austria Vienna ahead of the upcoming campaign, as the 19-year-old looks to continue his development abroad.
With Virgil van Dijk, Joel Matip, Ibrahima Konate and Joe Gomez already in their ranks, Liverpool are well stocked in the centre-back area and this has allowed Koumetio to achieve regular first team football elsewhere.
The 6ft 5in defender has been involved with the first team since the 2020-21 season, where he made his debut as a substitute in the UEFA Champions League group stage draw with Midtjylland in December 2020, before making one Carabao Cup appearance last term.
