Liverpool transfers: Five players who could leave Anfield this summer
Liverpool transfers: Paul Gorst takes a looks at five players who could be leaving the Reds this summer
The biggest concern for Liverpool supporters this summer is the future of Luis Suárez. The Uruguayan striker was the standout player for the Reds last season, scoring 30 goals in 44 appearances for the Merseyside outfit. However, he recently admitted that he was tired of the treatment he receives from the British media and revealed that he wants to leave England. The former Ajax man has also recently hinted at a move to Real Madrid.
Pepe Reina is another key member of Brendan Rodgers’s squad who has been linked with a move to La Liga this summer. The Spanish goalkeeper has been repeatedly talked about in connection with a transfer to Barcelona, with the Catalan giants reportedly ready to bid £10m for the former Villarreal stopper.
Andy Carroll looks certain to leave the club summer after spending a season out on loan at West Ham United. The England striker does not fit into Rodgers’s plan at Anfield and the Reds are looking to recoup around £17m of the £35m that they shelled out to Newcastle United for the powerful forward back in January 2011.
Martin Skrtel is another player whose future has been the subject of speculation. The Slovakian suffered a loss of form and lost his place to Jamie Carragher back in January. Manchester City were interested in Skrtel last summer and there have been suggestions that the club would accept a good offer for the player this time round.
Jonjo Shelvey was the subject of reported interest from Stoke City back in January and with the Reds not involved in European competition next season, they could be willing to cash in on the former Charlton Athletic youngster if a sufficient offer came in this summer. Shelvey recently took part in England’s miserable campaign at the Under-21 European championships, failing to leave a mark on the tournament.
