The quadruple chasing Reds are the talk of the town at the moment, with every club in world football wanting a piece of the magic that Jurgen Klopp has created at Anfield.

Something that has been highlighted as a key contributing factor toward Liverpool’s success has been their business in the transfer window; although at times been frustrating for fans when Premier League rivals have looked to have endless spending power.

Nevertheless, Liverpool’s way of doing things in the transfer market is starting to look like the model every top club needs to be adopting, with little money spent and instead focusing on player’s age, future potential, and where they can fit into the club’s philosophy and playing style.

So, with all that said, let’s take a look at Liverpool’s transfer market activity since the start of the 2020/21 season.

Kostas Tsimikas – £11.7 million from Olympiakos

Tsimikas was signed from Olympiakos and was relatively unknown to most Liverpool and Premier League fans but has become one of the signings that highlight the Red’s classy recruiting system.

The Greek international has slotted in perfectly to Jurgen Klopp’s starting XI when needed, as cover for Andy Robertson, and has also provided the Scot with stiff competition for a starting place. He’s also managed to provide six assists in 21 appearances so far this campaign.

Thiago Alcantara – £25 million from FC Bayern Munich

The signing of Thiago Alcantara was hailed as one of Jurgen Klopp’s greatest bits of business, with the star midfielder gracing the pitches of the Nou Camp and the Allianz Arena for years before his arrival on Merseyside.

Despite a slow start to life at Anfield, Thiago has come to life this season and has become a crucial cog in Liverpool’s starting XI; that £25 million price tag is looking more outrageous with every 90 minutes played.

Ibrahima Konate – £36 million from RB Leipzig

You would be shocked to think Liverpool managed to sign Konate for just £36 million from RB Leipzig last summer, considering he’s only 22-years-old in today’s overpriced transfer market, but nearly one season in and Konate is proving to be one hell of a bargain.

The Frenchman has shone in the UEFA Champions League knockout stages scoring twice and providing the Reds with another goal in their FA Cup semi-final against Manchester City.

Luis Diaz – £37.5 million from Porto

Luis Diaz looked set to miss out on a move to Liverpool after numerous months of speculation, however, the Columbian international stars signature was secured in January, and he has become an instant fan favourite and starter in Jurgen Klopp’s starting XI.

Diaz has managed to make Liverpool’s attack even more formidable, something which no one thought could be possible.

Diogo Jota – £40 million from Wolves

When Liverpool first signed Diogo Jota, many fans were amused and puzzled as to why Liverpool had made a move for Wolves’ “second best” forward.

Nevertheless, the Portuguese forward has proven to be Liverpool’s classiest bit of business, becoming one of the Premier Leagues’ most lethal forwards in the process. Jota has scored 21 times in 45 appearances and assisted six for Liverpool this season.
