Following the acquisition of Roberto Firmino, he joins a rather rag-tag looking list that ranks amongst their five most expensive players EVER!
Though the Brazilian is yet to link up with his new teammates, there is still good grounding to tank him alongside the club’s other big money arrivals.
Below we list the top five most expensive players the club have signed in order of how well they performed.
5. Andy Carroll
Back in the summer of 2011, Carroll’s form with Newcastle made him the hottest young English player and the Reds were so impressed that they sought to cough up £35m for his signature. Nevermind that he wasn’t fully tested in the top flight, the club obviously failed to run him through a rigourous enough medical as a series of debilitating injuries kept him on the sidelines for the majority of his two year stay, reducing him to scoring just 11 goals in 55 appearances.
