LIVERPOOL, ENGLAND - AUGUST 19: Liverpool Manager Jurgen Klopp speaks to Wataru Endo of Liverpool during the Premier League match between Liverpool FC and AFC Bournemouth at Anfield on August 19, 2023 in Liverpool, England.

Unfortunately, as the transfer market continues to explode and player valuations steadily increase, it has become clear Liverpool and FSG will not always be able to keep their spending under a set threshold.

The club found bargains in the form of manageable release clauses for Alexis Mac Allister and Dominik Szoboszlai.

However, their pursuit of the the Belgian teenager Lavia from Southampton proved to be quite cumbersome.

Southampton were very clear from the beginning that £50 million was what it would take to get a deal across the line.

As it were, Chelsea swooped in with a £48 million bid for Lavia.

This lit some kind of fire at Liverpool as they abandoned all interest in the Belgian and instead agreed to a potential record £110 million deal with Brighton for Caicedo.

Yet, even though the clubs agreed, the player, his agent or his camp, depending on who you ask, decided Chelsea was his only destination as the Blues had been chasing him all summer.

This very public rejection sent shockwaves throughout the footballing world as the Reds were left exposed.

He also chose a big money move to Chelsea.

Had Liverpool forked over £50 million over a month earlier, they would have had their long-term solution to the No.

What has happened since shows that maybe Liverpool might not have learned as much as we hoped they would have.

Their response to such public embarrassments was to sign Wataru Endo from Stuttgart for a fee of €18 million.

The Brazilian season is hitting a crucial point and it’s obvious Fluminese will not be bullied or tricked.

At 22, Andre would prove to be a great signing for now and the future and for an almost nothing cost compared to the numbers being thrown around in the market.

Yet, Liverpool have deemed him as of this writing, not worth an extra £10 million.
