Joe Allen exit not an unfair decision by Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp

ESPN FC's Paul Mariner gives his verdict on Liverpool's summer transfer window.

Joe Allen leaving Liverpool was the least surprising news of the summer. Fans will debate the decision, but it isn't a baffling or unfair one.

Brendan Rodgers insisted on bringing his midfield dynamo at Swansea along for the Anfield ride when signing him for £15 million in 2012. He humorously called him "the Welsh Xavi" but that air of levity haunts him still. Presumably, Rodgers felt his methods needed transplanting from Swansea to Liverpool, aided by bringing an important member of that side...

Liverpool striker Mario Balotelli crashes wedding photos in tracksuit

The ESPN FC crew discuss the rumour that Mario Balotelli could be headed to China.

If you could invite him, everyone would want Mario Balotelli at their wedding. But sometimes the Liverpool striker doesn't even need to be invited to get into the action.

Jurgen Klopp's emphasis on teamwork explains Liverpool's low-key signings

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp explains why he chose to go after each of the Reds summer signings.

When Liverpool tempted Jurgen Klopp to be their manager last October, they acquired their new frontman after predecessor Brendan Rodgers lost his way. The German was a charismatic figure meant to give identity to a club still trying to get over the loss of icons Steven Gerrard and Luis Suarez.

At Borussia Dortmund, Klopp was the star, the key element in the blaze of yellow and black with which the club became German champions in 2011 and 2012, and narrowly lost the 2013 Champions League final to...

Jurgen Klopp's 5-point plan for Liverpool includes starting Loris Karius

ESPN FC's Paul Mariner assesses Jurgen Klopp's five-point plan for Liverpool this season.

This is Jurgen Klopp's first summer as Liverpool manager, the German's first opportunity to fully imprint his mark on this squad by putting the side through a tough preseason and recruiting new players. He'll hope the Reds can build on their two cup final appearances and eighth-placed league finish last season.

Here is a five-point plan for what Klopp needs to do to take Liverpool to the next level:

1. Build the team around Daniel Sturridge

Even missing much of last season couldn't stop Sturridge...

Georginio Wijnaldum would be Liverpool's most intriguing signing yet

Alison Bender looks at whether Georginio Wijnaldum will be a good fit for Liverpool, as the Reds close in on a £25m deal.

If Liverpool finalise a deal for Newcastle United midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum, it would be their most intriguing move of the summer so far.

Every signing they've made to this point has a specific position, and it's fairly clear how and where they fit into manager Jurgen Klopp's plans. Goalkeeper Loris Karius is expected to soon replace incumbent Simon Mignolet; Joel Matip will start at centre-half; Ragnar Klavan will compete for a spot alongside Matip; Marko Grujic will challenge for a place...
