When does Premier League transfer window open and close? Liverpool learns dates to make signings

Liverpool has learned when the Premier League will open and 'slam shut' this summer's transfer window. It's now less than a month before the Reds can formally make new signings.

From June 14, Liverpool and the rest of the Premier League will be able to add to their squads. The transfer window will close on August 30, a fortnight after the season gets underway on August 17.

The Premier League has also consulted with the EFL and other major European leagues to ensure a uniform approach. The Championship, League One, League Two, Bundesliga, La Liga, Serie A and Ligue 1 will all conform to the same dates.

As ever, we can expect certain leagues to be outliers. Saudi Arabia caused some concern at Liverpool last summer, with its window not closing until September 7 amid a high-profile pursuit of Mohamed Salah. Likewise, Turkey often operates slightly different transfer timelines.

Generally speaking, Liverpool under FSG has preferred to gets its business done early. Last season, Alexis Mac Allister's signing was confirmed at the earliest possible opportunity, while Dominik Szoboszlai was also afforded a full pre-season. However, it took until deadline day to land Ryan Gravenberch, with the Reds making the fullest possible use of the window.

It's a particularly intriguing summer this time around. Liverpool's planning will no doubt have been impacted by the change in manager, with Arne Slot still yet to be formally confirmed as Jürgen Klopp's replacement. Meanwhile, the recruitment team has undergone a major shake-up.

Michael Edwards has returned to FSG in a CEO of Football capacity, and has been busy making appointments. Former Liverpool employees Julian Ward and David Woodfine are both back in new roles, while Richard Hughes has been made the next sporting director. Slot is expected to join as 'head coach' rather than 'manager', which will be a difference in more than mere terminology. says: It would be a surprise to see Liverpool busy on June 14 again this year, with all the upheaval that has been going on. The Reds certainly won't have neglected transfer planning, but it's only natural that the question of identifying Klopp's successor needed to come first.

Then again, with a crack behind-the-scenes team now pretty much assembled, and with Slot seemingly inbound, Liverpool can go full-steam-ahead for the next month. The defense is one area that seems likely to be targeted for new recruits.

Overall, though, it's unlikely to be the busiest of transfer windows. Klopp is leaving behind a squad in relatively rude health, and it needs fine-tuning rather than an overhaul, especially when accounting for all of the young talent.
