Despite not completing any transfer deals so far, Liverpool is still not going to be pushed into paying over the odds for any of their targets. The Reds have been struggling to complete a deal for AS Roma winger Mohammed Salah, but it appears that the Italians want them to break the bank for the Egyptian.
Liverpool has reportedly had a bid of around £28 million rejected by Roma as the Italians continue to ask for a fee that would see the Reds break their transfer record currently held by Andy Carroll, whom they signed for £35 million pounds in the summer of 2011.
Liverpool has generally been careful when it comes to spending in the transfer market, and despite the inflated rate of players in the market right now, they still would not like to pay too much for any player.
According to the Liverpool Echo, the Reds are instead looking for alternatives, should they fail to meet the valuation of their first choice targets.
Jurgen Klopp shares the same vision of only spending the right amount for the right target with the Liverpool board. However, this approach may see them sign only average players as the transfer market is now more inflated that ever before.
