Three Liverpool players Jurgen Klopp must look to replace

Liverpool’s meteoric rise to challengers for the Premier League is due largely in part to manager Jurgen Klopp.

Since the German’s arrival at the club, Klopp has taken Liverpool from European outsiders to European finalists, and is now embarking on going one step further – silverware.

During his three years at the helm, the ‘normal one’ has seen many players come and go, and it can hardly be argued that Klopp has improved his side year upon year.

Though the squad is definitely at its strongest since Klopp took over in October 2015, the Reds could still get stronger.

With squad depth naturally comes the progression of careers, and some appear to have run their course at Anfield.

Here’s three players who Klopp must soon look to replace at Liverpool.

Alberto Moreno

With Marseille and Arsenal rumoured to be weighing up moves for the Spaniard, the Reds have a ready-made replacement in 18-year-old Adam Lewis of the youth team.

The Belgian was tipped for much success when he was signed by Brendan Rodgers, and despite a couple of stellar moments – such as a hat-trick against Southampton – he’s never lived up to the promise.

With Wolves expected to make a move for the forward in January, the Reds have set a £20million+ asking fee, and the only question is how much of a loss Klopp will determine him to be.

Adam Lallana 

Despite being a Klopp favourite, Lallana has struggled with injuries for much of his Liverpool career, and seems to be over the hill judging by his recent performances.

Replacing the injured Mohamed Salah in the Champions League final in May, Lallana failed to add anywhere near the level of threat that his Egyption teammate did before he was subbed off.

Injured early this season, Lallana featured in the embarrassing loss to Red Star Belgrade, and hasn’t appeared since.
