Jurgen Klopp was in charge of Liverpool in the year 2015. Since then, he has led the Reds to Premier League titles, Champions League trophies, FA Cup, EFL Cup, UEFA Super Cup, and FIFA Club World Cup.
The German manager is best known for his coaching philosophy and drawing out the best of all the players on his team. He turned some great players like Mohamed Salah and Virgil van Dijk into soccer superstars.
The recruitment made by Klopp in Anfield has been great so far. As soon as Klopp is confident of the player’s talent, he splurges a lot of money on them. Since arrival at Anfield, the German has spent £540m on player transfers (excluding Darwin Nunez).
According to the reports on Sky Sports, The Reds have added Benfica striker Darwin Nunez to the list. They signed him with an add-on for £ 85m and became the most expensive player in club history.
Top 3 Most Expensive Transfers by Liverpool
1. Virgil Van Dijk
As per the reports by Sky Sports, Dutch center-back Virgil Van Dijk joined Liverpool from Southampton in January 2018 for £75m. He has established himself as one of the best defenders of this generation. Vandyk has made 129 Premier League appearances in the Reds and has never lost a league match in Anfield.
He won six trophies in Liverpool. He also won the 2018-19 Premier League Player of the Year Award and participated in the PFA Premier League Team of the Year three times.
2. Alisson Becker
Liverpool raised a lot of eyebrows when they signed AS Roma’s Allison Becker for £67m. However, goalkeepers have withstood the test and are now considered one of the best in the world. He has played 136 times in the Premier League and holds 64 clean sheets in those games.
The 29-year-old shot-stopper won the Premier League Golden Glove twice and was named FIFA’s best goalkeeper in 2019. He was nominated for the PFA Premier League team for the 2021-22 season.
3. Naby Keita
