Liverpool could sell six out of favour stars this summer and in doing so could generate £100m in sales, the Daily Record reports.
Ryan Kent, Harry Wilson, Sheyi Ojo and Nathaniel Clyne, Ovie Ejaria and Marjo Grujic are all likely to leave Liverpool permanently this summer.
Jurgen Klopp has worked wonders as Liverpool manager and while supporters are over the moon with where the club is heading, there is an unexpected downside to having such high standards.
After finishing the Premier League season on 97 points and winning the Champions League in Madrid, Liverpool will have little margin for error next season.
They will be expected to match the same unprecedented heights and go one better by winning the league for the first time in 30 years which leaves little room for Klopp to give young players a chance in the side.
The Daily Record reports that Kent, Wilson, Ojo, Ejaria, Clyne and Grujic are all in the shop window this summer, with the Reds expected to raise £100m from player sales.
Given how strong Liverpool’s squad is, it’s going to take a few expensive signings to make a difference next season so if Michael Edwards can raise an extra £100m+ to negate the costs involved, Fenway Sports Group will be very happy.
Nicolas Pepe’s reported move to Anfield could cost £70.9m, according to L’Equipe, which would be covered by player sales and some.
The likes of Matthijs de Ligt and Bruno Fernandes would also cost a huge amount so it’s important that Liverpool make the most of player sales this summer
