Liverpool are yet to name a new manager to succeed Brendan Rodgers, but it has already been an eventful summer with many changes to the Reds' playing personnel.
Steven Gerrard, considered by many to be the best player to ever don the club's red jersey, has finally ended his 28-year long association with Liverpool this summer, choosing to leave on a free transfer after the expiry of his contract.
In his prime, he established himself as one of the best midfielders in world football. Now 35, Gerrard has found opportunities in the first team harder to come by, and is set to spend the remainder of his professional career in the United States with LA Galaxy.
Racking up 504 appearances in the Premier League for Liverpool and serving as captain for 12 years, it will be no easy feat to find another player like him.
Apart from the man affectionately known as Stevie G, many other departures have taken place. Among the expected sales of unneeded players like Iago Aspas, Fabio Borini and Sebastian Coates, one transfer is especially significant for the Liverpool fans.
Hero to villain: Raheem Sterling left Liverpool for green pastures at Manchester City
It is no secret that wantaway winger Raheem Sterling has been angling for a move to a better side and he finally got his wish after Manchester City came in with a £44 million bid.
The youngster had proved himself to be an important member of the first team and would have been instrumental in Liverpool's relentless quest for a Champions League finish this season.
Furthermore, the acrimonious manner of his Merseyside desertion has certainly not gone down well with the fans. Formerly viewed as a hero, Sterling is swiftly transforming himself into the Kop's latest villain and can expect a passionate reception the next time he returns to Anfield.
With a total of £55 million gained from transfers out, what about the transfers in? The absence of a manager has not deterred the club and the infamous transfer committee have worked to bring in no less than 7 players for a combined fee of £67 million.
Liverpool's frequent activity in the transfer market has naturally caused excitement among the club's supporters. In a negative viewpoint, however, the potential risk of a new boss having to work with a summer signing he did not want is growing with each new purchase the club makes on its own.
James Milner, Adam Bogdan and Danny Ings were brought in on free transfers, although the latter is subject to a tribunal fee that is yet to be determined.
Milner, a reliable midfielder who has played in over 300 Premier League games for the likes of Aston Villa and Manchester City, is expected to partner Jordan Henderson in the center of the pitch. Bogdan was brought in from Bolton Wanderers to replace Brad Jones, and Ings could turn out to be a prolific signing having scored 11 goals in his debut season in the top flight with Burnley.
At the back, 18-year-old Joe Gomez comes in from Charlton for £3.5 million and £12 million is also splurged on Southampton right-back Nathaniel Clyne, who will slot straight into the first team following the expiry of Glen Johnson's contract and the long-term injury of Jon Flanagan.
There will be an added weight of expectation on Christian Benteke to perform well
The two big money signings, Roberto Firmino and Christian Benteke, will come at the cost of £28 million and £32 million respectively.
Firmino has been slowly but surely gaining prominence after exceptional performances in the Bundesliga with Hoffenheim and the offensive-minded midfielder could add an extra dimension to Liverpool's attack. The man that will hopefully deliver the goals is Benteke, who managed to score 42 goals in 89 games for former side Villa.
As the most expensive summer signing so far, and with Daniel Sturridge stuck on the sidelines with an injury layoff, there will definitely be an added weight of expectation on Benteke to bang the goals in.
Regardless, Liverpool's transfer business is looking solid, although it is hard to envision their manager-to-be getting any funds for his own targets after the amount of money that has already been spent.
And that brings us back to the Reds' most pressing issue this summer. Two primary targets, Jurgen Klopp and Carlo Ancelotti, have turned down the chance to manage at Anfield and there appear to be very little candidates left in the pool.
With the majority of transfers for the club looking to be done and dusted, Liverpool owners Fenway Sports Group now have to focus their efforts on finding the right man to take over.
