Three players Liverpool should offload in January
After making a club record-breaking start to the 2018/19 Premier League season, Liverpool will be looking to capitalise on their strong market position.
Having spent around £150million on reinforcements in the summer, the Reds will likely be looking to recuperate some money if the opportunity becomes available.
Though Jurgen Klopp currently has the best squad depth available to him since his arrival at the club, there’s no doubt it would be in his best interest to let go of some of his talent, even if it’s to free up funds for replacements.
Here are three players Klopp should look to move on in January.
Clyne has hardly featured for the Reds since a back injury kept him out for the majority of the 2017/18 season.
In his absence, Trent Alexander-Arnold has come into the fold, and thrived as an attacking right-back for both Liverpool and England.
Clyne has 18 months left to run on his deal, and is valued at over £10million by Liverpool. He’s been linked with a move to Cardiff in a move which could suit all parties, as the defender looks to get his career back on track and Liverpool search for a reliable backup.
Former Southampton star Adam Lallana is a favourite of Jurgen Klopp, however he has suffered a torrid time with injuries in recent years.
The England midfielder cost Liverpool almost £30million in 2014, and has a current market value of around £18million according to Transfermarkt.
Lallana is now 30-years-old and has 18 months left to run on his deal, earning an estimated £65,000 per week. Liverpool should cash in on an ageing midfielder and look to reinvest in youth.
Despite his heroics in the Merseyside derby, Divock Origi’s career at Liverpool should be wound up while he still has market value.
Origi has struggled to get going at Anfield and he has been linked with a move to Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Valued at £20million by the Reds, a sale would equate to profit on the £10million forked out on the former LOSC Lille forward, and it would free up funds for reinvestment in a player with a clean slate.
