Jurgen Klopp will be financially aided to meet his requirement of rebuilding the Liverpool squad this summer. They have been through challenges this season and currently stand at 10th in the league after 20 games.
According to a few, the main declining factor is the squad’s age group, with key players such as Jordan Henderson, Fabinho, Mohamed Salah, and Virgil van Dijk all in or nearing their 30s.
Klopp to receive financial backing to rebuild the Liverpool squad this summer
Reports suggest Klopp will have a chance to upgrade his aging side, as the manager has a strong desire to stay at the club and will be given financial backing to sign new names. Some names have come up as the possible target, England’s star midfielder Jude Bellingham being one. Another name is Wolves’ Matheus Nunes.
Reports also claim that the club will be buoyed by the initiation of a new head of research as the club has already chosen a candidate who is ‘working in the game and regarded as a leading operator in the football data field.’
This will signify Dr. Kan Graham’s replacement in the role, which might prove to be a difficult task to follow as he has had a vital role in lots of Liverpool’s crucial signings, including Klopp, in the last decade. Currently, he’s believed to be in his notice period till May.
A bright approach
This new approach might be fruitful in the near future. However, at present, the Reds are having a tough time, being winless in the league in 2023. They suffered defeats in each of their three away games, conceding three goals each.
The new names brought in this year, including Darwin Nunez and Cody Gakpo, with high expectations, have struggled to perform as per the mark. Since the year beginning, Liverpool has scored just one goal.
They’re set to take on Everton next.
