Liverpool exodus

Last summer the Reds had plenty of players they were looking to sell.

However, nobody had any money due to the pandemic.

Plans and players were shelved until this summer with Michael Edwards now having an almighty task on his hands moving on a host of fringe stars.

Marko Grujic has joined Porto and Harry Wilson has signed for Fulham.

Nat Phillips is being tipped for an exit as he looks for first team football whilst Neco Williams may stay put after all.

Furthermore, the future of Divock Origi is up in the air with the striker failing to provide effective backup in recent years.

Xherdan Shaqiri agrees terms with Lyon

This summer will likely see Shaq on his way out.

According to L’Equipe in France, Xherdan Shaqiri has agreed personal terms with Lyon.

The Swiss international is said to have negotiated a salary worth around £73k-a-week.

However, the two clubs still need to come to an agreement on the transfer fee.

What RTK has to say

Xherdan Shaqiri is too good to be sat on the bench but he doesn’t suit our system.

He’ll do brilliantly in Ligue 1, he’ll be a star for Lyon.

Despite his exit it looks as though we won’t be signing a replacement with The Mail reporting that Jürgen Klopp sees Harvey Elliott stepping into the Swiss star’s shoes in the first team.

Hopefully this is resolved sooner rather than later so Michael Edwards can turn his attention to bringing in reinforcements for the front three.
