The Merseyside club brought in talent from all over Europe including Mamadou Sakho from PSG, Iago Aspas from Celta Vigo and Tiago Ilori from Sporting Lisbon.
Liverpool have also loaned in Victor Moses from Chelsea to add depth to an already well stocked wide midfielder role.
Despite spending just over £50 million, they have added to all of the four positions that need covering including Simon Mignolet who replaced Pepe Reina who left on loan to Napoli this summer.
Again as previously mentioned, Liverpool have sold, relased, loaned or in Jamie Carragher’s case, retired.
Liverpool finally managed to offload Andy Carroll who signed for West Ham this summer for a fee thought to be worth just over £15 million.
