Kostas Tsimikas 

The Greek left back struggled for minutes last season, making just 13 appearances in the league. Joe Gomez’s strong performances in his position when both he and first choice Andy Robertson were injured will present another hurdle for him to get consistent game time.

Barring a major injury crisis at the back, he’ll need to explore his options this summer if he seeks regular first- team football.

Verdict: Sell

Andy Robertson

Rarely put a foot wrong over the past several months. Robertson continues to provide security in the defensive end of Liverpool’s left hand channel and creativity going forward. Between his quality and senior leadership role in the squad, he should be untouchable this summer. 

Verdict: Keep

Trent Alexander-Arnold

Liverpool should have the same stance on Robertson’s opposite fullback. Between his ability from set pieces, passing range, and versatility to both maraud down the right flank and position himself centrally as an inverted fullback, Alexander-Arnold’s value to Liverpool is priceless.

He has embraced his increased leadership role in his first season as vice-captain- another quality that should keep him off limits this summer. 

Verdict: Keep

Joel Matip

A lengthy injury cruelly robbed Joel Matip of much of the final season of his contract, which expires in June. The 32-year-old has been a fantastic servant for the Reds and will leave many fond memories behind having won every possible trophy at club level throughout his time at Anfield. 

Verdict: Club will let contract expire at end of season
