Liverpool will be mandated to sell a large number of players, both owing to a shortage of room in the squad to accommodate newcomers and to let rid of players who are no longer productive and account for a large portion of the pay cost.
Although the Reds prepare for the arrival of players such as Jude Bellingham, Mason Mount, Matheus Nunes, and others, they must also strive to let go of many more.
Around ten players are thought to be on the verge of leaving Liverpool for a variety of reasons, including a lack of playing time due to poor performances and an expiring contract that the club is unwilling to renew.
There are a few names that are already attracting attention from throughout Europe, and the Merseyside club must give equal attention to that in order to make way.
According to rumours, Liverpool midfielder Naby Keita has piqued the interest of a Spanish club as he remains set to leave the Reds when his contract ends this summer.
According to Sport, FC Barcelona has indicated interest in bringing the Guinean midfielder to the Camp Nou, as the talent continues to garner interest from other major European teams.
Keita has clearly fallen well down Jurgen Klopp’s favourite midfielder list for all the obvious reasons. He is no longer the player he once was, and as the club prepares to bring in new talent in the category, his future at Anfield appears to be bleak.
His contract is slated to expire at the end of the season, and there have been no solid advancements in any extension discussions between the parties as of yet. The player, on the other hand, remains a target for many powerhouses where he may obtain better and more opportunities to resuscitate his career.
It remains to be seen how the player handles the situation and which club he finally chooses to join.
