Football journalist and top transfer expert Fabrizio Romano has claimed that a lot of players 'do not want to join Liverpool' right now.
Jurgen Klopp's side would be a dream destination for any footballer in the world, but Romano has explained why players would be wary of a transfer to the defending Premier League champions.
Speaking on his own Here We Go podcast, the widely popular transfer expert said, "A lot of players now don't want to join Liverpool [and only] play five, six, seven matches, before the big ones are coming back from their injuries.

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba admits the Red Devils cannot say they are on the same level as Liverpool.
"Then [the new signings] are on the bench for one season or more. So, at the moment, Liverpool are still with the same idea: 'We can stay with this team. If we have an opportunity, OK. If we don't, we stay with this one.'"
Liverpool already have a bunch of players, including Xherdan Shaqiri, Alex-Oxalade Chamberlain, Naby Keita, and Divock Origi, who are struggling for regular playing time.
Klopp's side are currently dealing with a number of injuries, especially in defence, and while the German has suggested that the Reds aren't looking to bring in any new faces, multiple players have been linked with a switch to Anfield.
Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez, Joel Matip, and Diogo Jota are all currently sidelined, with Van Dijk and Gomez reportedly set to miss a major chunk of the season.
