Liverpool are seeking to collect £22 million from two transfer exits and are ‘desperate’ to get rid of one ace.
This summer, Jurgen Klopp wants to get rid of the deadwood in his squad.
Liverpool are set on sanctioning a number of sales this summer in order to aid Jurgen Klopp’s transfer budget. Klopp’s current roster is overcrowded, with lots of deadwood that may be used to help raise finances for a midfielder and forward.
In terms of both incomings and outgoings, Liverpool has enjoyed a quiet transfer window thus far.
The signing of RB Leipzig centre-back Ibrahima Konate is thrilling, but the free transfer of Georginio Wijnaldum is a disappointment.
Klopp’s team presently has more than 30 players, therefore additional departures are expected ahead of the 2021/22 season.
According to recent rumours, the Reds are thinking about selling players this summer.
Liverpool are hoping to collect at least £22 million by selling Marko Grujic and Harry Wilson, according to the Daily Mirror.
Wilson’s contract with Liverpool expires in 2023, and the Reds are ‘determined’ to trade him for £10 million.
Wilson has spent the last three and a half seasons on loan, most recently at Cardiff City after a £11 million transfer to Burnley fell through last year.
Benfica and Brentford are apparently interested in the Wales international, who wants to play top-flight football in England or overseas.
According to the Daily Mirror, Liverpool value Grujic at £12 million, with Sassuolo and other German clubs also keen.
Grujic has also spent nearly four years on loan, and Porto, his temporary club last season, is thought to be interested in signing him on a permanent basis.
Aside from Wilson and the Serbian midfielder, Xherdan Shaqiri, Neco Williams, Loris Karius, Sheyi Ojo, Ben Woodburn, and Taiwo Awoniyi are among the periphery players on the market.
After the return to fitness of Konate and Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez, and Joel Matip, one of Klopp’s stars from last season, Nathaniel Phillips, is also free to depart.
With a month and a half left in the transfer window, Liverpool has plenty of time to complete inbound and outbound moves.
The conclusion of Euro 2020 and the Copa America will heighten the urgency of negotiations, especially for clubs looking to sign players before the season begins in less than 30 days.
Liverpool can surely back Klopp further without having to sell players after investing £35 million for Konate.
However, it appears that the team will need to be trimmed before any new additions are made.
