6 Liverpool stars put up for sale by Jurgen Klopp in the transfer window
Liverpool could raise substantial funds for incoming signings this summer in a bid to reclaim the Premier League title by putting six marginal stars on their transfer roster.
Jurgen Klopp and his side have failed to build on their winning 2019/20 season and are expected to miss out on Champions League qualification following Leicester’s victory over Manchester United.
While the FSG may have advanced more funds following the recent protests in an attempt to keep supporters aside, the likely failure to reach the top four will have financial ramifications.
Daily Star Sport described six fringe players who could leave in order to increase their incoming budget, including one of their 2018/19 Champions League heroes.
Divock Origi could leave Anfield this summer having managed just one goal in 17 outings in all competitions under Klopp so far this season.
The 2018/19 Champions League hero may have scored the crucial second goal of the final, but he’s no longer getting regular minutes from the bench like he did in the past.
With his contract running until summer 2024, Liverpool are expected to be able to recoup the £ 10million they paid for his services in 2014.
Xherdan Shaqiri has slipped even further down the pecking order at Anfield following the arrival of Diogo Jota, with Harvey Elliot returning this summer expected to be more bad news.
The 29-year-old has managed seven goals in just 44 Premier League appearances since joining relegated Stoke in 2018, scoring once in 21 appearances this season.
With his contract until 2023, Liverpool are in a strong position, and it is likely that many clubs will be interested in catching him if he is available.
Loris Karius didn’t have the impact he would have hoped for joining Liverpool from Mainz 05 in 2016, making 49 appearances in two seasons and struggling in the Champions League final.
The 27-year-old is currently on loan at Union Berlin after spending two seasons with Besiktas, and has one year left on his contract with Liverpool.
Despite his difficulties, there could be an interest in the Bundesliga where he has impressed in the past.
Harry Wilson was once tipped for big things at Liverpool but could now leave the club after a fifth loan deal away from Anfield in just six seasons.
The Welsh international has managed seven goals in each of his last two seasons with Bournemouth in the Premier League, and now Cardiff in the league – where he added 12 assists.
The 24-year-old, on contract until 2023, is sure to generate interest from second-tier sides who are aiming for promotion and possibly even mid-range outfits in the Premier League.
Marco Grujic could finally leave Liverpool this summer after four loan deals away from the club since being signed from Red Star Belgrade in 2016.
Although Klopp had plans for the Serbian after his first loan deal, he could now leave Anfield for good despite his ongoing contract until the summer of 2023.
The 25-year-old could stay in Portugal with Porto, or even return to the Bundesliga where he spent two seasons with Hertha BSC between 2018 and 2020.
Sheyi Ojo is another player who may not have done enough to earn a first-team spot at Liverpool next season, despite glimpsing his talent with Cardiff this season.
The 23-year-old was loaned out to Wigan, Wolves, Fulham, Reims and Rangers ahead of the current campaign, having been listed at Anfield since 2011.
Despite his contract until 2023, Liverpool could cash this summer.
