Comolli cools Liverpool transfer talk

Published -1 Comments

Liverpool director of football Damien Comolli believes this summer's transfer window will be the quietest during Kenny Dalglish's second spell in charge of the club.

Since taking over last January, the Scot has spent big to bring a number of top players to the club. Andy Carroll and Luis Suarez moved to Merseyside for over £55 million in his first month at the club, and seven other new faces followed suit at the end of the season.

After winning the League Cup last weekend, Comolli suggested a number of 'big players' were already in the sights of the Anfield outfit, but the Frenchman has cooled talk of another huge spending spree in 2012.

"It is early days. We will probably make some adjustments in the summer but nothing that we've done before," said Comolli.

"We signed nine players since Kenny came back so there will be a few adjustments but nothing massive. We have done the hard work and now it is a question of making some adjustments in certain positions.

"Kenny has said it several times that we have a very competitive squad and all positions are covered by two or three players, quality players, and we have a lot of young players coming through as well."

Comolli was understandably delighted to see the Reds win at Wembley on Sunday, with victory against Cardiff securing the club's return to Europe with months remaining in the season.

But, the former Spurs-man knows there is still plenty for the side to play for this season, with the possibility of a fourth-place finish and return to the Champions League potentially on the cards. A win against Arsenal tomorrow would be a good first step to achieving the goal.

"It is a fantastic statement and also we are back in Europe early in the season. We know it will bring us positive dynamic for the rest of the season," he concluded.

"It is a fantastic way to end February with a trophy already but we know we have a lot to play for until May."
