A fee couldn’t be agreed though with Steven Caulker the only player to arrive that month.
Predictably, things didn’t improve for Liverpool in the league after that with a disappointing eighth-placed finish.
But patience eventually paid off as Liverpool won the battle to sign Sadio Mane from Southampton that following summer, along with the signings of Joel Matip and Georginio Wijnaldum to kickstart Klopp’s era at Anfield.
That following season, Liverpool propelled themselves back into the top four with Mohamed Salah arriving a year later.
Eventually, things started to click for Liverpool due to their smart activity in the transfer market and they’ve grown from strength to strength.
Arsenal fans may have some frustrations at the lack of a striker being signed last month, but Liverpool are living proof that patience is the most valuable commodity for the Gunners right now.
