Liverpool will not be embarking on a significant spending spree this summer, according to Christian Purslow.

The Reds, who are top of the Premier League, are set to bring in at least £30m in additional revenue this summer with qualification for next season’s Champions League all but secured.

But former Liverpool managing director Purslow feels that the Merseyside outfit are unlikely to spend more than they bring in during the summer transfer window.

“I think the new Liverpool owners are absolutely committed to spending what they earn on the pitch,” Purslow told talkSPORT.

“Liverpool will earn maybe £30m more next year because they’re in the Champions League. This will contribute to strengthening the squad next year. No question about it.

“Will they go beyond that with their own money? I somewhat doubt it.”
