Liverpool believe that they can raise over £60m from sales of fringe players this summer, as they look to try and reshape their squad.
The Reds head into this summer window knowing that they need to improve the depth of the squad after what happened last season.
Indeed, when called upon, certain fringe players did not step up to the plate and it looks as though a change in the squad’s look is set to take place in this window.
That, according to The Athletic, is the plan at least, with Reds reporter James Pearce revealing all:
“The belief is that Liverpool can still raise in excess of £60 million from sales. Harry Wilson and Divock Origi have similar valuations to Grujic.
“Offers are also expected to come in for Xherdan Shaqiri, who only made seven starts in all competitions last season.
“Taiwo Awoniyi, who is valued at around £8 million, could also be moved on, along with Loris Karius, Sheyi Ojo, Ben Woodburn and Liam Millar.”
ANFIELD WATCH VERDICT
It would be no surprise to see all of these players leave this summer, we’ll just have to see how many of them go and how much money their exits do actually raise.
£60m would be a decent bit of cash to work with to get in a couple of decent signings, alongside any money the Reds should have available anyway, and we’ll just have to see how Michael Edwards and the recruitment team piece it all together.
