Liverpool hope to recoup upwards of £45m from selling their on-loan players. It would provide a huge boost for the summer window.
We have to turn to various reports for this but we’ve had a few recently.
Take this from Serbia. They claim that Marko Grujic, on loan at FC Porto, is up for grabs this summer. Liverpool just don’t have a place for him.
A sale wouldn’t be cheap, though. Liverpool hope to get around £26m for the midfielder.
Then there’s this from Fichajes in Spain. They believe Liverpool could sell Takumi Minamino, on loan at Southampton, for around £8.5m.

We still feel that fee is very, very low, should Liverpool sell Minamino. Still, Fichajes claim Sevilla want the 26-year-old and the Reds are open to it.
Finally, there’s this from the Athletic earlier this month. It details how Liverpool have various players up for sale this summer.
One of which is Harry Wilson. The club apparently wanted £15m before this season for the Welshman. Burnley offered £12.5m but Liverpool said no before sending him on loan to Cardiff City.
Now, if Liverpool still want to sell, we imagine that £15m asking-price remains. It doesn’t make much sense for them to send Wilson on loan, only to ask for less a year down the line.
Not with the Burnley offer there.
Combined, then, we’re looking at over £45m for these three players. The Athletic report, however, mentions Liverpool wanting to sell more.
Loris Karius, Sheyi Ojo and Taiwo Awoniyi could also move on for cash this summer. No fees are attached in the article, however.
But assuming Liverpool get as little as £5m for the three – a very conservative estimate – that’s over £50m from selling six players.
That will go far and it’s all for players Liverpool don’t need. If the Reds truly can raise that kind of money without taking a hit to their first-team or future plans, then this could be a particularly intriguing summer.
