In theory, Liverpool can spend £273m this month and in this article we’ll look at how this is the case.
The Reds’ only signing in the summer was Ibrahima Konate and the Frenchman has been a fantastic addition to the squad both in terms of his ability on the ball and also in terms of his infectious personality.
It’s clear, when paying close attention to Konate, that he’s a player that Jurgen Klopp will have received rave reviews about regarding his character and personality as the Reds are all about squad morale and unity.
Now that the winter transfer window is upon us, it’s been revealed how much the Anfield outfit is allowed to spend in line with FFP regulations.
According to the Daily Star, “Clubs can spend up to £3.9million more than they earn per each three-year assessment period, though only losses of £35m will be allowed in that timeframe.”
Liverpool can, in theory, spend £273million this month and will not fall foul of UEFA and their Financial Fair Play regulations although it’s unlikely the Reds will make any signings let alone go on one of the biggest transfer spending sprees of all time.
Raphinha has been linked with the Reds since last summer and even his agent said the Reds were interested but Leeds United will not let him go as they need him to stay up in the Premier League.
A midfield replacement for Georginio Wijnaldum would also go a long way as Thiago and Naby Keita find it difficult to avoid injury at the best of times and that’s before you take COVID-19 and injuries to other central midfielders into account.
While Liverpool might be able to spend £273m in theory, I would be shocked if that total was used up at all by the end of the month when it seems more likely to be increased by a sale that Fabrizio Romano has discussed.
