The list of names of those that could leave Liverpool in the summer is bound to both increase and decrease in size between now and May.
It appears the future of a number of players at the club is reliant on how Jurgen Klopp’s side finish the Premier League season given how any uncertainty has arose following the dramatic slump since the turn of the year.
The lack of signings in the January transfer window was always going to set up a busy summer market and out-goings are likely to be just as eye-catching as the in-comings.
A ruthless approach from Klopp to constructing this squad to his liking once and for all is perhaps what is needed in order to move forward. That started last year with the departure of the supposed ‘dead wood’ and could be continued come July.
After discussing the uncertain future of Daniel Sturridge, the Guardian’s Andy Hunter proceeded to highlight three more players who are candidates to move on elsewhere.
He said: “Among others who could leave Liverpool this summer are Lucas Leiva, who is out of contract, Alberto Moreno and Emre Can, who has yet to commit to a new contract and has 16 months remaining on his deal.”
It’s only right that Lucas Leiva is treated with the utmost respect no matter what decision is made regarding his future. If he is to leave, the club must do all it can to find the Brazilian the best possible move and set him up in the ideal situation.
Though both Emre Can and Alberto Moreno are still young, their lack of progression has been frustrating and it is difficult to predict what Klopp will do.
