Liverpool are going to have a busy summer transfer window. Sweeping changes are expected, we believe it will be a case of out with the old and in with the new. Ageing and injured players are predicted to be moved on with younger and more reliable replacements brought in. Of course there’s always the spectre of interest in our top talents. Twitter has reacted to rumours of PSG interest in Mo Salah.
Possible ins and outs
There is a list of players we can confidently say will definitely be leaving over the summer.
Gini Wijnaldum’s contract is expiring and he is believed to be joining Barcelona.
Meanwhile Marko Grujic could well stick around in Portugal with Porto allegedly keen on making his loan spell a permanent stay.
Harry Wilson has impressed in the Championship again this term with a permanent move somewhere sure to come around this summer.

Meanwhile there are other moves which we cannot be so certain of.
For instance the front three is full of question marks; with revolution needed up top there is no telling who will stay and who will go from the Reds’ trademark trio.
PSG interest in Mo Salah
We aren’t the only club with uncertainty surrounding their attack.
Over in France there is a great deal of speculation surrounding the PSG attack.
The side have failed to tie down Neymar and Kylian Mbappe to new deals.
The young Frenchman is much coveted throughout the game and rumours of his departure this summer are intensifying.
According to Le Parisien, PSG want to sign Mo Salah if they lose Mbappe.
The report states that the French side value the Egyptian at a paltry £69m.
What RTK has to say
Now, we can expect that this valuation will be dismissed out of hand by Michael Edwards.
The Reds’ sporting director is an expert when it comes to squeezing buyers for every penny.
We have managed to wangle £19m for Dominic Solanke in the past, there’s no chance we’re going to lose Mo for £69m.
There is also the consideration that if we were to sell our talismanic winger we’d need to generate enough income to sign an adequate replacement for him.
Many fans will believe that should PSG want Mo Salah to replace Mbappe then they’d have to offer the Frenchman in exchange.
Sure, we’d likely have to cough up a few million quid to sweeten the deal given the age difference between the two players but it could be good business all around.

Fans are displeased on the whole, failing to believe the rumour. Whilst others would only acquiesce if it meant Mbappe coming in.
