Decisions to be made

There is a number of players facing an Anfield exit this summer.

Xherdan Shaqiri will get a move away if the price is right.

The Swiss international has shone at times but he isn’t at the required level to provide consistent backup and competition for the Reds’ front three.

Meanwhile Harry Wilson, Marko Grujic and Divock Origi will also leave according to various reports.

Takumi Minamino’s future is up in the air, along with the fates of Nat Phillips and Ben Davies.

Liverpool to use Harvey Elliott

Last season the Reds sent their boy wonder on loan to the Championship.

Liverpool loaned Elliott to Blackburn Rovers and the winger stood out for the second tier side.

Only turning 18-years-old in April, the teenager managed seven goals and 11 assists in a thoroughly impressive campaign.

The Liverpool ECHO has reported that the Reds expect Harvey Elliott to be a contributing squad player next season.

What RTK has to say

Liverpool would be showing massive faith in Elliott by not sending him on loan again.

It would be an understandable decision; he was phenomenal last term.

He may benefit from developing alongside the Reds’ first team instead of playing with lesser quality teammates.
