The season in the Premier League is coming to an end, which means that the transfer window will open soon. The newly-made champion of the country, Liverpool, plans to part with several players who receive little playing practice at the club. Here are the main candidates.
Adrian (18 matches, 24 conceded goals)
Even though the Spanish goalkeeper has a contract with the Reds until next summer, he can leave the team already during this transfer window. Adrian’s game in the season left a double impression.
Also, the Merseysiders have a young Irish keeper Kevin Kelleher. Klopp’s assistant Pep Linders said the Liverpool coaching staff sees a good future in him and wants to provide an opportunity for development.
Dejan Lovren (15 matches, 1 goal, 1 assist)
Many Liverpool fans are awaiting Lovren’s departure. The Croatian defender was often mistaken on the defensive, which is why Klopp put him on the bench, making Joel Matip the main center-back. Even after the injury of the Cameroonian footballer, the German replaced him not with Lovren, but with the young Joe Gomez.
But Klopp said Dejan was very important to the team and needed. At the same time, the likelihood of the 31-year-old defender leaving Liverpool is still quite high, because his contract expires already next summer, and there is no talk of extending the speech.
Adam Lallana (22 matches, 1 goal, 2 assists)
Lallana extended the agreement with the Merseysiders with a reduced salary until the actual end of the season. The Englishman will leave the club, as he needs more playing time.
Jerdan Shaqiri (10 matches, 1 goal)
The last time Shakiri entered the field in January in an away match against Tottenham Hotspur. Klopp put the Swiss on the field … for one minute. Since then, the German specialist did not give him a chance to prove himself on the field, leaving the player even out of the application. The Athletic journalist James Pearce has confirmed that Jerdan will leave Liverpool if a suitable offer is received by the Reds.
The problem may arise in the price. According to the authoritative German portal Transfermarkt, Shakiri’s cost is 16 million euros.
