Tom Werner refuses to comment on Liverpool transfers

Reds’ chairman Tom Werner has refused to comment on Liverpool’s transfer policy while the summer window is open.

Despite a less than inspiring transfer window, Werner insists that Fenway Sports Group (FSG) remain “ambitious” and “committed” and adds that he hopes to see Jürgen Klopp’s side compete for major silverware again this season.

Werner told The Athletic: “I don’t think it makes strategic sense for an owner to comment on transfer policy while a transfer window remains open.

“What I would say is that, as always, Jurgen has articulated the situation really well by pointing not only to the strength we already have but the strength we have to come back.

“Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is back, Rhian Brewster is available properly for the first time I’d say, Naby Keita a year on, I could go on.

“It’s also a very high-quality team and squad, which makes signing players who are better than we currently have more challenging.

“What I would say is that we always remain ambitious and we remain committed to keeping this amazing squad together and at a level where it can be competitive for all the big trophies.”
