Liverpool are expected to part ways with a number of players following reports that the club have received offers for as many as three players.

Neil Jones of Goal reported this week that Liverpool are currently listening to offers for the likes of Harry Wilson, Marko Grujic and Rhian Brewster.

The report also claims that a number of Liverpool players could be set to drop down a league or two with a host of Championship and League One teams enquiring about the availability of certain Reds stars.

Most intriguingly, Liverpool have beyond the transfer deadline on October 5 to sanction a number of deals.

There is an extra deadline for trade between English clubs which runs to October 16 at 5 pm.

This is applicable for both loan and permanent deals.

The Premier League website states: “During this window, Premier League clubs will only be able to trade with EFL clubs (either loans or permanent registrations).

“No transfers can take place between Premier League clubs in this period.”

This could be applicable to a host of Liverpool talents including Ben Woodburn, Yasser Larouci, Nat Phillips and Herbie Kane, who have all be linked with moves across the English footballing pyramid.

This is good news for Liverpool who will look to condense the size of their squad following a number of summer acquisitions.

Reputable journalist James Pearce recently confirmed that Liverpool were happy with their transfer business this summer and that there would be no more incomings, with the club’s priority in the final days of the window strictly focussed on getting certain players out of the door.

According to Goal, Woodburn is in talks with Hull City regarding a potential loan deal while Norwich City have reportedly contacted Liverpool regarding the situation surrounding Larouci.

Phillips had a number of Championship clubs interested in securing his services with Swansea City, Nottingham Forest and Middlesborough among those to have contacted Liverpool.

However, the 23-year-old defender has been suffering with an injury, which has halted any potential switch. The same scenario applies to midfielder Kane, who is still battling back to fitness following hamstring surgery and is likely to be sidelined until after the window closes, which could mean he remains on Merseyside until January at least.

Kane, 21, is a product of the academy system at Kirkby following a move from Bristol City at the age of 15. He has made two senior appearances for Jurgen Klopp’s first team and was previously tipped for big things by his former U18’s manager and Rangers boss Steven Gerrard.

“These boys (Alexander-Arnold and Kane) really caught my eye,” wrote Gerrard in My Story (2016), arguably the most influential captain in Liverpool’s history.

The extra extension to the deadline does provide Liverpool with a safety net to get certain deals over the line as clubs will become more willing to avoid the stress of falling short so close to the final day of the transfer window.

Lucky for Liverpool supporters, the Reds have got their transfer business done well before the deadline meaning that Klopp can focus on what he has rather than what he can still look to bring in.
