Transfer Window? Who Cares?

Transfer Window? Who Cares?

The transfer window is open, speculation has already started, clubs have already started wheeling and dealing, and Liverpool have been linked with… Well okay, to be fair, the picture has changed somewhat around Anfield over the last couple of years.
