Liverpool Sporting Director Michael Edwards has been working overtime this summer.

Edwards has had to put in extra time to secure the best possible deals for Liverpool when selling their fringe and loan players.

So far, he has done just that.

The magical money man has once again managed to sell perennial loan players for inflated fees, gathering the necessary funds to further improve Jurgen Klopp's squad.

Liverpool have announced three outgoing transfers so far in this window.

Harry Wilson, Taiwo Awoniyi and Marko Grujic have all left Liverpool on permanent transfers.

Harry Wilson made a £12.60 million move to Championship side Fulham, Taiwo Awoniyi made a £6.5 million move to his former side Union Berlin and Marko Grujic made a £10.5 million move to FC Porto.

To save you from doing the math, this is £29.6 million in total.

For comparison, Diogo Jota cost Liverpool £40.23 million so Liverpool have nearly acquired the necessary funds to sign a player of his stature.

Two different reports, however, claim Liverpool have very different plans for the remainder of the transfer window.

PA Media sports reporter Carl Markham has reported that it is unlikely Liverpool Football Club will bring in any additional players following Ibrahima Konate's £36 million transfer.

This rightfully sent Liverpool supporters into a downward spiral.

However, there is reason to be optimistic. 

Melissa Reddy who is the Senior Football Correspondent for The Independent has said that Liverpool FC are actively looking to recruit players in midfield and attack this summer.

While it is unsure what report is true, Reddy is very reliable when it comes to Liverpool and has been correct multiple times in the past.

With rumours continuing to pop up involving Liverpool, it is hard to envision that the club's transfer business is finished.
