Liverpool player sales

This summer the Reds need to raise a significant amount of money.

Jürgen Klopp needs a striker and ideally a midfielder as well.

As a result Michael Edwards will have to set up shop with his finest fringe players on offer.

Deals will be sorted for Divock Origi and Xherdan Shaqiri with the two backup forwards not doing enough with their chances in the past couple of years.

Harry Wilson and Marko Grujic will also be on their way after a number of loan moves in recent seasons.

Meanwhile Nat Phillips will likely be sold in an effort to grant the Bolton Baresi more first team football elsehwere.

Liverpool selling Neco Williams

Last week reports surfaced that Liverpool are open to selling Neco Williams.

The Welshman has played second fiddle to Trent Alexander-Arnold in the past two seasons, making 25 appearances in all competitions.

According to The Athletic the 20-year-old is looking for more first team football and the Reds are willing to let him leave if a bid of around £10m comes in.

Leeds United, Southampton, Aston Villa and Burnley are cited as interested parties.

Buyback clause needed

This lad has mountains of potential.

If Liverpool are going to sell Neco Williams then we need to insert a buyback clause.

What happens if in a few years’ time Trent is in centre mid? It’d be handy to be able to bring Neco home if he realises his potential.

Otherwise we run the risk of letting a gem slip away because he came through at the wrong time.
