There will be a major revolution in Liverpool’s squad in the upcoming summer after their performance this season. Notably, the list of players to be cleared out by The Kop will include some unexpected names.
Liverpool is having a forgettable 2022/2023 season with consecutive disappointing results as well as negative news. They were eliminated from the Champions League this season after a minimum-score loss to Real Madrid in the second leg. Klopp’s team could not create surprises at the Bernabeu and had to stop in the round of 16.
Thus, Liverpool has run out of opportunities to win more titles this season as they have been eliminated from the FA Cup, Carabao Cup, and Champions League. Klopp’s team will only have one goal left, which is to qualify for the top 4 of the Premier League.
Liverpool is having a disappointing season despite it only being mid-March. There are many players in the current squad who lack motivation and this has angered the management. They have decided to undergo a major overhaul of the team during the upcoming summer transfer window.
Players who have fallen out of favor, whose contracts are expiring, or who have not performed well will have to leave Anfield at the end of this season. These players include Joe Gomez, Nathaniel Phillips, Milner, Matip, Keita, Chamberlain, Kelleher, and Tsimikas.
In addition, Curtis Jones and Fabinho will also be on this list due to their poor performance this season. Liverpool has also confirmed the departure of striker Firmino as he did not renew his contract.
Therefore, at least 11 players will leave Liverpool next summer. In addition to the four players whose contracts are expiring (Milner, Keita, Chamberlain, and Firmino), the Anfield club hopes to generate €50-60 million from the sale of the remaining seven players on the clearance list to finance Liverpool new signings.
The recent loss at the Bernabeu has hurt the pride of a team that has been one of the strongest in Europe in recent years, like Liverpool. From this defeat, Klopp’s team realized their weaknesses when facing a makeshift midfield. The German coach may have realized this and will join the club’s management in the race for Jude Bellingham’s signature in the upcoming summer transfer window.
At present, Liverpool’s midfield is showing a shortage of both quantity and quality due to numerous injuries to key players. The familiar faces in The Kop’s midfield include Henderson, Elliot, Bajcetic, and Fabinho, none of whom excel at supporting the attack. This is the reason why the Reds have become so unbalanced.
We can expect to see a completely new look for Liverpool transfer done deals in the coming season after undergoing a strong squad overhaul. Manager Jurgen Klopp and key players like Van Dijk, Arnold, and Salah are also not safe and will be threatened at any time if they fail to perform.
Their recent match as visitors at the Bernabeu was Liverpool’s final game in March. They will have nearly two weeks of rest to serve FIFA Days before returning to a grueling schedule in April, facing Chelsea, Arsenal, and Man City within a span of just 8 days.
