'What a disaster': Some Liverpool fans 'so annoyed' after Chelsea make announcement
Liverpool fans have been left frustrated after they failed to push ahead a deal for Saul Niguez, who ended up signing for Chelsea.
Saul joins Chelsea
Saul was heavily linked with a move to Liverpool throughout the summer in Mundo Deportivo.
However, when the deal became possible, it was Chelsea who pushed to make it happen.
The Blues signed Saul on loan for the season for under £5 million (Sky Sports), and Liverpool fans can’t understand why they didn’t pursue a deal.
All quiet at Anfield
Liverpool had a relatively quiet summer with only Ibrahima Konate arriving.
Jurgen Klopp’s side have still started the season fairly strongly, but there are concerns from supporters that they may not have the depth to compete with the likes of Chelsea and Manchester City.
Liverpool did lose Georginio Wijnaldum so there is a space for a midfielder in their squad.
However, Klopp has backed his current options to see him through the season.
The emergence of Harvey Elliott as a genuine first-team option has helped in that regard.
But whether he will be able to last the entire campaign as a starter still remains to be seen.
