Arsenal boss Freddie Ljungberg praises Liverpool FC’s transfer business
Freddie Ljungberg praises Liverpool FC for their recent transfer business under Jurgen Klopp
Freddie Ljungberg has praised Liverpool FC for their astute transfer business in recent years under Jurgen Klopp.
The Reds have made a number of top signings in recent seasons, including bringing the likes of Mohamed Salah and Virgil van Dijk to Anfield.
Van Dijk is widely considered to be one of the finest defenders in the world, while Salah has been consistently near the top of the Premier League goal-scoring charts since his move to Anfield in 2017.
Ljungberg is currently in temporary charge of Arsenal as the Gunners look for a permanent replacement for Unai Emery at The Emirates.
The former Sweden international has hinted that he will not be involved in Arsenal’s January transfer business, after having praised Liverpool FC’s approach to the market in recent years.
Speaking in an interview quoted by Metro, Ljungberg said: “Liverpool have been extremely good in the transfer market.
“They see something they need, they go in big and get it. They have had some tremendous success.
“Of course, part of football is the transfer market but I’m working on a day-to-day basis. There have been no discussions with me about transfers.
“I’d like to think about planning long-term for this and that but I can’t because it’s a day-to-day job and I try not to tease my brain that way.”
Arsenal – who are outside of the top four as things stand – will travel to Everton in their next Premier League game on Saturday lunchtime, before they take on Bournemouth away from home on Boxing Day.
The Gunners will then face testing home clashes against Chelsea FC and Manchester United in what is set to be a hectic festive period in the Premier League.
