Liverpool to sanction four exits as Klopp makes forward decision.

Liverpool to sanction four exits as Klopp makes forward decision.

Liverpool have several players supporters would not be shocked to see bequeath the club this summer.

Following word the Reds are willing to allow a permanent exit for Neco Williams should the Wales international wish to depart, the defender’s name joins a list that comprises the likes of Xherdan Shaqiri, Divock Origi, and Harry Wilson.

Last summer, Liverpool were open to proposals for all three players and when suitable offers were not forthcoming, the Welshman was left to leave on loan as the Switzerland and Belgium internationals provided cover at Anfield.

When it comes to the trio this summer, the Reds’ position has not changed.

There is again notable interest in their services, which is likely to only rise for Shaqiri following his powerful showings at Euro 2020, but Liverpool are not ready to sell any of them on the cheap.

If they wish to stay, they will remain members of the Liverpool first-team squad, as was the case for Shaqiri and Origi last season.

If they wish to leave, they would only be entitled to depart for their market value.

However, if the Reds did sell any of the trio, club insiders indicate it is doubtful that a replacement would be sought notwithstanding links with the likes of Patson Daka, Raphinha, and Donyell Malen.

There had been constant speculation that Liverpool would look to recruit a new forward this summer, especially given that Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane are set to play in the Africa Cup of Nations in January.

According to The ECHO, Klopp and his coaching team are much happy with the attacking options they have at their disposal, having already found it a challenge to give all players enough game time last season.

After all, Shaqiri was handed five Premier League starts last season while Origi, along with Takumi Minamino and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, registered just two.

Salah, Mane and Roberto Firmino have been the Reds’ assured front three in recent seasons and there is no sign of any of them leaving this summer, while Diogo Jota became the first player to stake a legitimate claim to break up the trio when shining during his maiden season at Anfield last year.

Meanwhile, the likes of Minamino and Harvey Elliott were allowed to go on loan, alongside Wilson, in quest of regular game time.

The duo will return to the AXA Training Centre in Kirkby for pre-season training next month, with the ECHO already stating that Minamino remains a part of Klopp’s plans.

After shining on loan at Blackburn Rovers, Liverpool retains high expectations for Elliott and it is understood they expect him to come back to the club ready to be a contributing squad player next season.

Liverpool’s attacking positions will also be boosted by the availability of Oxlade-Chamberlain and Naby Keita following injury-plagued campaigns.

And it is the presence of the England international at Anfield which could help reveal why Liverpool currently have no plan to strengthen their hand even if any of Shaqiri, Origi or Wilson move on.

Having predominantly been used in central midfield during his Reds career so far, Oxlade-Chamberlain has surprised Liverpool coaches in training when operating further up the pitch, and will be acknowledged for the number 10 and wide forward roles next season.

Therefore, currently boasting more than two players for each position in the Reds’ traditional front three, Liverpool are not presumed to look to substitute any departing squad options in attack with Klopp believed to be absolutely happy to head into the new campaign with the players he already has at his end.
