Liverpool’s seven-figure windfall from transfer of player who didn’t play for the Reds

Liverpool’s seven-figure windfall from transfer of player who didn’t play for the Reds

Liverpool are understood to have pocketed £2million after Kamil Grabara’s £11.4million transfer from Copenhagen to Wolfsburg.

The Reds forked out just £250,000 to sign Grabara from Polish side Ruch Chorzow in 2016, and then made a tidy profit when he moved to the Danish capital for £3million five years later. He is now making an even more substantial move to the Bundesliga, and Liverpool are reaping the rewards of a clever sell-on clause, The Mirror reports.




While the earnings won’t make much of a dent in the expected outlay this summer, every penny counts if Slot is to chase some of the big names linked with a move to Anfield. And Liverpool will appreciate the injection considering they haven’t had to invest much in developing Grabara along the way.

Despite being on Liverpool’s books for five years, he never took to the pitch for a senior Liverpool match. His only appearance was in a pre-season friendly against Tranmere in 2018 under Jurgen Klopp.

The towering 6ft 5in goalkeeper spent two years with the reserves and trained regularly with the first team before being loaned to Danish side Aarhus in January 2019. He was on the move again that summer when he joined Huddersfield for the 2019/20 season.

After starting 28 Championship matches for the Terriers in that period, a season-ending head injury cut short his time in Yorkshire. Another loan spell was on the cards when he returned to Aarhus, then made Denmark his permanent home by signing for Copenhagen in 2021.
