Liverpool owner has spoken out about Premier League spending in an interview with the Liverpool Echo.

The Reds have Newcastle on their mind, with even Jurgen Klopp admitting that the ‘financial possibilities they will have in the future are exceptional’

“There are ever-increasing financial challenges in the Premier League,” Henry said to the Liverpool Echo.

“The league itself is extraordinarily successful and is the greatest football competition in the world”

“But we’ve thought for some time there should be limits on spending so that the league doesn’t go the way of European leagues where one or two clubs annually have little competition”.

“Excitement depends on competition and is the most important component of the Premier League.”

In the summer, it’s been rumoured that Liverpool will have a £200m war chest to spend, with Jude Bellingham at the top of the list.

Croatia defender, Josko Gvardiol is also a main priority as Liverpool look to shore up their defence.
