Comolli outlines Liverpool transfer strategy

Published Add your comment

Liverpool's Director of Football has set a cautious tone over more spending plans at Anfield, as Kenny Dalglish continues to search for an elusive left back.

Damien Comolli, 38, said that it was "difficult to say" whether new players would be coming in, and that the club was more focused on players leaving the club.

But the French director, who has been with Liverpool since the end of last year, didn't rule out temporary newcomers arriving at the club.

The Frenchman said: “I’m sure there will be players going out because some players would like to play more and have more minutes.

“We will probably have a few loans as well, players who we would like them to develop, into the Championship or the leagues abroad.


“In terms of players coming in, it’s difficult to say. I think we are going to sit down, look at the situation, see where we are, see who might leave and then we will reassess later.”

Liverpool are still in need of a left back after Gaël Clichy chose Manchester City over the Reds, and a rumoured £9.5 million deal for French defender Aly Cissokho looks set to be snuffed out.

So far Kenny Dalglish has spent around £300 million since the 2006/2007 season, second only in the Barclays Premier League to Manchester City's £470 million pound bill.
