£12m sale will kickstart Liverpool cleanout - reports

Published Add your comment

Liverpool are ready to sell Raul Meireles in order to finance some of their big summer buys, according to the Daily Mirror.

Charlie Adam, Scott Dann, Charles N’Zogbia and Stewart Downing are all high on Kenny Dalglish’s transfer wishlist, and with the Liverpool manager already spending a reported £16 million on Jordan Henderson, money is set to tighten around Merseyside.

And Dalglish hopes to make a clear out of all dead wood that were purchased before he came to Liverpool, in the hopes of starting with a fresh new squad ready to challenge for trophies next season.


While Meireles had a good first season for Liverpool, possible purchases of Downing and Adam, along with Henderson, will make it difficult for Meireles to feature for Liverpool next season.

Dalglish is hopeful of keeping the Merseyside club out of debt, and showed this in January, where the big money purchases of Andy Carroll and Luis Suarez were almost entirely offset by the £50 million sale of Fernando Torres.

Inter Milan have so far showed interest in the 28-year-old, with Liverpool reportedly willing to speak to the club about a move.

Alberto Aquilani, Joe Cole, Milan Jovanovic, Maxi Rodriguez, Christian Poulsen and Paul Konchesky are also on Dalglish’s hitlist, but the Liverpool manager is hoping to get at least £12 million from the sale of Meireles to kick start the profits at Anfield.
