Virgil van Dijk from Southampton for £75m in 2017
When Liverpool paid £75 million for Virgil van Dijk in 2017, it was the most expensive transfer for a defender in the world. But despite this huge fee, the Dutch proved to be worth every single pound. He consolidated Liverpool’s defence, leading them to their first Premier League title and to their 7th Champions League win in 2019.
Fernando Torres from Atlético Madrid for £20m in 2007
Getting Fernando Torres was not an easy feat for Liverpool and it cost them around £20 million, in addition to sending Luis García to Madrid. At that moment, it was the highest fee that club ever paid and Torres quickly became fan favourite at Anfield, until his disappointing departure in 2011 when he left for Chelsea in another record transfer fee of around £50 million.
Luis Suárez from Ajax for £23m in 2011
Even though his Liverpool career was marred by racial and biting incidents, the Uruguayan striker is one of the best scorers in the recent history of the club. Luis Suárez netted 69 league goals during his three years at Liverpool, before eventually moving to Barcelona for a fee of around £65 million.
Philippe Coutinho from Inter Milan for £8.5 in 2013
After spending a year on loan in Espanyol and struggling to get into the first team at Inter, Coutinho was bought by Liverpool for £8.5 million in 2013. The Brazilian winger spent 5 successful years at Anfield before he was sold to Barcelona for a record-breaking transfer fee of £105 million. This transfer included various add-ons, which made the total fee grow to around £130 million in the end.
Mohamed Salah from Roma for £35m in 2017
The Egyptian winger was brought to Roma from Chelsea after he failed to prove himself at Stamford Bridge. However, Liverpool decided to give him another chance in the Premier League and he repaid that trust by becoming one of the world’s best players and a vital piece in their run to become champions of England after 30 years.
