5 players who could leave Liverpool in the summer.
Liverpool may be looking at a busy summer ahead in terms of departures. A few names on the list would shock the readers.
Liverpool FC is having one of their best seasons in recent years under the German boss, Jurgen Klopp. The Reds currently sit third in the Premier League points table only two points behind arch-rivals Manchester United.
The style of football under the German boss has been impeccable at especially at Anfield. Liverpool have scored 61 goals in the league alone and put up sensational attacking displays in front of the fans.
However, the defensive frailties of the Reds have let them down. They have dropped countless points from winning positions courtesy of their unassured defence. Klopp had splashed a record fee over Van Dijk in January to bolster his team's back-line but the move has not yet started to reap any dividends for the club.
Klopp is believed to be planning another big summer of spending to revamp his defence to mount up a serious title challenge for the 2018-19 season. While a few players' form is attracting interest from across Europe, a large number of departures are expected for the summer.
Having said that, let's take a look at the players who could possibly be leaving Anfield for all the various reasons.
#5 Dejan Lovren
Liverpool fans do not need a reference to their visit to Wembley where they were left humiliated by their agony in the defence.
Dejan Lovren was one of the prime culprits of Liverpool's shambles at the national stadium against Spurs. The Croatian was left devastated on the turf, pleading it to open up and swallow him so as to save him from the wrath of his manager.
Not only at Wembley, but against Everton at home, when Liverpool were looking certain to get past the merseyside rivals, the centre-back conceded a penalty. The team dropped two crucial points in a game which they should have deservedly won.
Klopp has often been left embarrassed by his defenders who fail to see through the game easily. Liverpool having splashed serious cash over Van Dijk would be looking to add more depth to their defense.
The Reds would also be looking to offload the players surplus to their requirements to balance the books. Therefore, Dejan Lovern's days at the club appear to be numbered.
