Liverpool are set for a summer firesale. The Reds have plenty of fringe players to move on in order to upgrade on the quality in depth in the side. Liverpool star Xherdan Shaqiri shone against Wales, doing Michael Edwards a big favour in the process.
Liverpool summer exits
Last summer the Reds failed to find buyers for their fringe players.
The financial impact of the pandemic curtailed clubs’ spending power, leaving Michael Edwards hamstrung.
This summer should see plenty of these players finally sold as we rebuild the bench.
Harry Wilson and Marko Grujic won’t be sent on another loan.
Meanwhile, Loris Karius, Sheyi Ojo and Ben Woodburn could also be on their way out.
Xherdan Shaqiri against Wales
Xherdan Shaqiri is another player set for a summer exit.
The Swiss international has been persistently linked with a move to Turkey.
This summer the midfielder will be playing a big part for his country at Euro 2020.
Yesterday Xherdan Shaqiri put in a standout performance against Wales.
The midfielder created four chances for his team, bagging an important assist.
He earned an impressive 7.44 WhoScored rating for his creative showcase.
Michael Edwards transfer boost
Shaq only started five Premier League games this season.
The diminutive playmaker was restricted to the bench and injuries didn’t help.
The midfielder showing what he can do at Euro 2020 will be a massive boost for Michael Edwards.
The sporting director can command a higher figure for the 29-year-old after an impressive tournament.
He’s started brightly, if he keeps creating goals for his side then it could be worth millions to the Reds.
