Liverpool are known to be a self-sustained club. For better or for worse, this is the way the club has operated in recent history. The pro of this method is it forces Jurgen Klopp to be smart with his signings and he has brought the best out of some budget friendly options like Andrew Robertson and Sadio Mane in the past. The con is that expensive players are hard to come by.

However, the Reds are in luck, as they are due to receive a small financial boost, which may help them when the transfer window re-opens in January.

Liverpool will receive sum of money from the sale of former goalkeeper Kamil Grabara

That’s right, according to Fabrizio Romano on X, Liverpool are set to receive a 20% boost from Wolfsburg’s pre-signing of Kamil Grabara.

The former Liverpool prodigy goalkeeper, who never made his league debut with the Reds, currently plays for Copenhagen. However, Wolfsburg have reached an agreement to sign him in the summer of 2024, although they have the option to in the winter as well. Liverpool will receive money from the €13.5m package deal.

It certainly won’t be a big sum of money but every little helps. Besides, given the strict budgets at Liverpool, Jurgen Klopp would never turn up his nose as the additional resources. Further, this deal shows the importance of clubs including sell-on clauses within their sales, particularly with younger players.

Who do you think Jurgen Klopp will sign in the January transfer window, if anyone at all?
