Michael Ngoo released by Liverpool

Published Add your comment

Liverpool have released seven players following their best season for 24 years, with Brendan Rodgers expected to significantly reinforce during the summer transfer window. Among those handed free transfers is Michael Ngoo, who was a notable acquisition by the club aged only 16.

The Reds paid £250,000 when they recruited Ngoo, now aged 20, from Southend but, despite starring in the Liverpool youth ranks, was unable to establish himself in the club’s first-team. Ngoo spent loan spells with Hearts, Yeovil and, most recently, Walsall and is now tasked with finding another employer.

Ngoo’s departure frees up some space for some forward recruitment over the course of the next few months, with Liverpool in need of more options following their return to the Champions League. Liverpool benefitted significantly from their more favourable fixture schedule last season, but the rigours of European football will require investment.

Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge are the only recognised strikers available to Rodgers, and the Liverpool manager will most certainly need to add one or two more players to this department. The duo scored 52 times between them in the league last term, but Rodgers is unlikely to be able to rely on their fitness across all competitions.
