Ronnie Whelan: Liverpool and Klopp look transfer market amateurs

Former Liverpool captain Ronnie Whelan has branded his old club transfer market "amateurs".

The Reds have so far shelled out around £45million on deals for Mohamed Salah, Andy Robertson and Dominic Solanke.

“Set against the business United and City have done, Liverpool and Jurgen Klopp look like amateurs," Whelan told the Irish Independent.

“Worse, Ronald Koeman and Everton have been spending like they've found a money tree.

“I think there there is deep frustration among Liverpool fans that the club cannot seem to push on and make the kind of signings a blind man can see that Klopp needs to make.

“I think everyone was unsettled by Klopp's admission that he is not in control of the (Philippe) Coutinho situation but even more worried that Liverpool's transfer policy seems to drift along.

“Everyone can see that Klopp needs better defenders and more goalscoring options up front and yet the biggest transfer story of the last month at Anfield is about a big player leaving."
