As a big club, Liverpool is very open to the presence of foreign players. Currently there are many foreign players who decorate the Reds squad.
One of Liverpool’s foreign players is Mohamed Salah. The Egyptian star is now the Reds’ main goal machine.
However, Liverpool also did not forget local players. Jurgen Klopp’s team in fact also often buy English players.
Not a few English players who achieved great success with Liverpool. Not even a few are recruited with a fairly expensive tag.
Here are the five most expensive English players Liverpool have ever signed.
Nathaniel Clyne put in an impressive performance while playing at Southampton. Liverpool finally signed the player in 2015.
Liverpool redeemed Clyne with a dowry of 17.7 million euros. Unfortunately, the English right-back’s career at Anfield has been plagued by injuries.
The appearance of Trent Alexander-Arnold finally made Clyne out of the Liverpool squad. Clyne was then released on a free after his contract expired in the summer of 2020.
One of Liverpool’s best captains, Jordan Henderson came to Anfield in 2011. The England midfielder was bought from Sunderland for 18 million euros.
After joining, Henderson was able to become the main choice in Liverpool’s midfield. The player who is now 31 years old has recorded 398 appearances with a score of 31 goals and 51 assists.
Not only that, Henderson also managed to deliver the Reds to the title. He has won the Premier League, Champions League, European Super Cup and Club World Cup.
Stewart Downing came to Liverpool in 2011 after being signed from Aston Villa. He was bought at that time for 22.8 million euros.
Downing ultimately did not last long at Anfield. He has difficulty making a real contribution to Liverpool even though he has been brought in at a high price.
During his three seasons at Liverpool, Downing made 91 appearances and seven goals. He left Liverpool in 2013 to join West Ham.
Adam Lallana was brought in by Liverpool from Southampton in July 2014. Unmitigated, the player was redeemed with a tag of 31 million euros.
Lallana had become a mainstay in Liverpool’s attack line. Unfortunately, his career was often plagued by injuries so he ended up being sidelined from the first team.
Lallana left Liverpool in 2020. He joined Brighton after making 178 appearances and 22 goals and 22 assists for the Reds.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain spent six seasons at Arsenal. The England midfielder then continued his career at Liverpool in the summer of 2017.
Oxlade-Chamberlain became a Liverpool player after being redeemed for a fee of 38 million euros. Just like at Arsenal, the player’s career at Anfield is also often plagued by injuries.
So far, the 28-year-old has made 108 appearances for Liverpool. He also won four titles including the Premier League and Champions League.
