Six Liverpool players who could leave this summer as Jurgen Klopp plots changes

Spread the love

Liverpool have looked like champions elect for much of the Premier League season and, barring any coronavirus interference, will be officially awarded a first title in 30 years at some point.

But Jurgen Klopp is still yet to win a domestic trophy and will be keen to reclaim the Champions League.

Excellent recruitment, led by sporting director Michael Edwards, has been the cornerstone of Liverpool’s rise in recent times and will no doubt be called upon again.

The Reds opted for continuity over change last summer with no major new faces coming in – it is unlikely that will be the case again come this summer.

This Liverpool side has very few flaws, but the German is very reliant on a cluster of players who tend to start the majority of games.

That has inevitably led to suggestions certain players could quit the Reds in an effort to further their careers elsewhere.

Divock Origi

The Belgian only signed a new contract in the summer but could still depart this summer having failed to force his way into the starting XI regularly enough.

Dejan Lovren

The defender was linked with an exit last summer but remained on Merseyside.

Xherdan Shaqiri

The forward’s exit does have a sense of inevitability about it.

He will always be remembered at Anfield for his two-goal performance against Manchester United which effectively ended Jose Mourinho’s tenure.

Naby Keita

The midfielder’s future hangs in the balance, Jurgen Klopp will be desperate to make the move work for all parties.

Loris Karius 

The villain of the 2018 Champions League final has not played for Liverpool since that fateful night in Kiev. 

Nathaniel Clyne 

Once a Liverpool and England regular, Clyne has suffered from several injuries in the last few years, ruling him out for long spells and allowing Trent Alexander-Arnold to make the Liverpool right back spot his own.
