Obviously, many players contracts expire on Friday, June 30th. As a result, there will be many free agents in this summer’s transfer window.
After the signing of Alexis Mac Allister from Brighton Albion. Jurgen Klopp is hell-bent on reshuffling the midfield, so as to be balanced next season.
As a result, the Reds have reached an agreement to sign Dominik Szoboszlai from RB Leipzig. And he will undergo his medical exam in the coming days.
Literally, Liverpool have now signed two midfielders. Frankly, Jurgen Klopp is most likely to continue the 4-3-3 formation next season.
Since the Reds are most likely to welcome more new players in this summer’s transfer window. They will dismiss many players to balance the squad.
Liverpool have confirmed the departure of 11 players after their contracts expire on Friday. Of course, they will definitely sign another player after Dominik Szoboszlai.
Without being sentimental, Jurgen Klopp has his defense and attack covered. At least, he has some brilliant, talented, and reliable players in that position.
The Reds were poor in all competitions in the 2022-2023. The German manager was dragged down several times, because of his poor results, particularly in the UEFA Champions League.
As a result, Jurgen Klopp doesn’t want to settle for less in all competitions next season. Therefore, he wants to compete with the likes of Chelsea, Manchester United, and the rest.
For the German gaffer to have a very balanced and composed team next campaign. Liverpool have decided to open the exit door for some players.
Who are the 11 players Liverpool dismissed?
Roberto Firmino has already bid farewell to Liverpool, as his deal expires last month. As a result, he’s currently a free agent in the summer transfer window.
Nevertheless, the Brazilian striker is the verge of signing for a Saudi Arabian club. He was recently linked to Real Madrid, but later collapsed.
In the midst of Diogo Jota and Darwin Núñez. There’s no need for the Reds to extend Firmino’s contract. Therefore, they have announced his departure.
Also, Jurgen Klopp’s side have dismissed James Milner, Naby Keïta and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. They desire to have enough space in the midfield.
Milner has already joined Brighton Albion as a free agent. Meanwhile, he successfully spent more than seven years at Anfield, making more than 300 appearances.
At the same time, Naby Keïta has joined Werder Bremen on a free transfer. However, they have already gotten Alexis Mac Allister as his replacement.
The Guinea international was sidelined many times for Liverpool last season. So, he didn’t really contribute anything to the team’s offensive and defensive performances.
Jurgen Klopp likes Roberto Firmino. Regardless, he cannot accommodate the likes of Darwin Núñez and Diogo Jota up front.
In addition, Liverpool also confirmed the departure of some academy players. Jack Bearne was one of the young players dismissed despite his potential.
Meanwhile, he made an appearance for the Reds in the FA Cup quarterfinals in 2019. Nevertheless, he has left as a free agent as his contract expires.
Other young players who were shown the exit door are; Fidel O’Rourke, Iwan Roberts, Liam Hughes, Oscar Kelly, Charlie Hayes-Green and Oludare Olufunwa.
