This summer will be an exciting one for Liverpool fans. The fanbase are expecting fireworks given how quiet the last two windows were for the club and how strongly the club have been performing financially. Whether or not anything happens – it’ll be exciting. According to The Independent’s Melissa Reddy, Liverpool are expecting Adam Lallana and Nathaniel Clyne to leave at the end of the season.
The Liverpool Nike Deal is one of the driving forces of the excitement surrounding this summer’s transfer window.
However, the only sure business so far is two departures.
Adam Lallana and Nathaniel Clyne are out of contract at the end of the season and according to Melissa Reddy the club are resigned to letting the pair go.
Unfortunately for the ex-Southampton duo they have had their Anfield careers hampered by injuries.
Lallana arrived with mountains of promise and has delivered on multiple occasions but he has spent a majority of his time on the sidelines.
Clyne has managed more minutes but injury and the ascendancy of Trent Alexander-Arnold have seen him forgotten by many Kopites.
What RTK has to say
This seems like a sensible decision, particularly financially.
It is no secret that Adam Lallana is earning a hefty packet, according to Spotrac he is pulling an incredible £110k a week.
Given that he is rarely fit enough to play a full 90 minutes, that is an enormous amount of money.
Letting the England star go at the end of the season will help us free up some of the wage budget whilst also allowing him to secure more minutes elsewhere.
With Clyne also heading for the exit door we can expect Neco Williams to step into a more senior role as he is the backup right back heir apparent.
There’ll be no tears shed over the two leaving but they will likely be fondly remembered by the Kop, Lallana in particular often inspired the fans with his work rate.
