Liverpool learns of Roberto Firmino’s initial injury diagnosis, which could alter his transfer plans.
The impact of Roberto Firmino’s hamstring injury on Liverpool’s transfer deadline day strategy has been discovered.
Liverpool will not finalize any additional moves before Tuesday’s 11pm deadline, according to reports that Roberto Firmino’s hamstring injury is “not serious.” During the Reds’ 1-1 tie with Chelsea on Saturday, Firmino limped off just before halftime.
The striker was making his first start of the season, but he suffered an injury in the first half that was concerning. He grumbled as he hobbled away, and Diogo Jota took his position.
The paucity of transfer activity this summer has been criticized by certain Liverpool fans.
Liverpool’s sole major transaction thus far has been the activation of Ibrahima Konate’s £36 million release clause. From RB Leipzig, the defender has arrived.
If Firmino’s injury keeps him out for a lengthy time, it has been suggested that Jurgen Klopp may be obliged to make a transfer.
According to The Times, the initial diagnosis indicates that the hamstring problem is “not significant.” The 29-year-old will be subjected to more tests.
Liverpool’s title hopes were thwarted last season by a terrible injury crisis, but the majority of those players have since recovered to full fitness.
Virgil van Dijk’s season was cut short in October, and Joe Gomez, Joel Matip, Jordan Henderson, Fabinho, and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain also lost significant amounts of time last season.
Klopp has stated time and time again that he does not need to add to his roster.
“Do I anticipate a hectic four days for us? To be honest, I don’t think so, but you never know,” the German told reporters before his team’s 1-1 draw with Chelsea on Friday.
“That’s the way things are. It’s evident that some teams’ options haven’t gotten any worse, but, as I’ve mentioned before, there are so many other reasons to win a football game.
“It’s not only about bringing in new players and something like that.
“It’s a little upsetting that I have to keep mentioning that we brought in Ibou Konate, who wasn’t a bargain or anything; he cost money as well.
“But, sure, all these offensive, attacking players that other clubs are signing, it’s obviously something they thought they needed and could afford. That’s how things are.”
