Liverpool are reportedly open to offers for six more players after Ki-Jana Hoever leaves the club to join Wolves on a permanent deal.
This comes from the Liverpool Echo. The outlet claims that the Reds could offload as many as six more fringe players after Hoever completed a move to Wolves.
The teenager, who joined Liverpool two years ago, heads to the Midlands for an initial £9m that could rise another £4.5m, per the BBC.
And he may not be the last. The Echo names Marko Grujic, Harry Wilson, Rhian Brewster, Nat Phillips, Yasser Larouci and Loris Karius as ‘on the market’.
Now, Liverpool would need the right fees for all, of course. But they’re not entertaining loans – they want the players gone.
What RTK has to say
In truth, these players are barely fringe players. None of them were first-team players last year, with five of the six away on loan. Although, that could change for some this season.
We expect Brewster, in particular, to play some role this year if he doesn’t disappear. The others, however, face uphill tasks to say the least.
Selling them all would represent some fantastic business. Reports indicate that Liverpool want at least £60m for Brewster, Wilson and Grujic – the other three would merely add to that.
The Echo report itself mentions £20m for both Brewster and Grujic, while Goal recently claimed the same for Wilson.
That £60m, along with the money for Hoever, would nearly cover the entirety of the incomings at Liverpool this summer. It’s hard to view that as anything other than exceptional work.
