There are around seven players at Liverpool who could still leave in this transfer window. We run down just how likely it is.
Liverpool have at least seven players who could leave in the next two weeks before the window shuts. Not all would leave permanently, of course, while many may stay.
So just how likely is each?
Karius might stay at the club purely because no one buys him. It’s an awful situation and one that, per the Liverpool Echo, could result in a season of no football.
Liverpool don’t have enough room in their squad to register Karius. He’d effectively just be around to train. We imagine the Reds will be quite desperate to find anyone who wants him before the deadline.
There are mixed reports on Neco Williams. The Athletic said back in June that he was actively looking to leave the club.
But now the same source claims he’ll stay. We imagine Liverpool would rather have him around but if he pushes for a move – and there’s a buyer – it sounds like they’ll sell.
Rhys Williams is an interesting one. He’s currently sixth-choice in the centre-back pecking order but proved himself last season.
The 20-year-old clearly has potential but he’ll need game time to reach it. A loan seems very sensible, likely to a Championship side. We’d be shocked if Liverpool kept him around to do nothing next season.
The Athletic reports that Liverpool would accept around £15m for Phillips. It amazes us that no one has paid that.
But things could change in the next few weeks. We rate Phillips very highly but he’s currently fifth-choice at the back. That surely won’t bring him the games he deserves.
Someone will almost certainly make a decent bid.
It sounds as though Woodburn might actually leave as soon as today. The Edinburgh Evening News claims he has an agreement to join Hearts on loan.
Woodburn briefly appeared to have a future with Liverpool this season. Instead, they’ll send him away for six months to see what he can do.
Shaqiri is another one that could kick off in the next few days. Per the Athletic, Lyon will use the money they get from Burnley for Maxwel Cornet to bid for the Swiss playmaker.
Whether Liverpool will get the offer they want or not is another matter. But it certainly sounds as though something will happen imminently.
The Telegraph claims Wolves, Crystal Palace and West Ham United like the look of Origi. He’s almost certainly available for transfer, too, given his limited game time over the last two seasons.
Liverpool would supposedly want around £15m to £20m for the Belgian, per the Athletic. Stats suggest that’s a decent price, too, and that we shouldn’t be overly disappointed if he stays.
