Liverpool board has bared manager Jurgen Klopp from signing more players this summer.
According to the Liverpool Echo, Klopp is unable to register any non-homegrown players at the club until he frees up some room in his squad - meaning new signings are currently off the table.
The Reds currently have a total of 17 non-homegrown players on their books following the acquisition of Ibrahima Konate from RB Leipzig and the return of Takumi Minamino from his loan spell at Southampton.
This means that Liverpool has reached the maximum number permitted by both the Premier League and UEFA.
The move means that the Reds can't name any more foreign players they may sign in their squad for the new campaign unless they start offloading individuals already at the club.
There have been reports that Minamino, Divock Origi, and Shaqiri are some of the players that the club is willing to let go this summer but their wage demands are another issue for their suitors.
While Origi is being linked with a move to Germany, Shaqiri is attracting interest from Italian clubs with Minamino set for another loan spell at another Premier League team.
