Liverpool seem to be out to shift the deadwood.
The club moved a number of players on in the summer transfer window, allowing some long-serving names to find new clubs, while also sending a clutch of youngsters away on loan.
In terms of permanent deals, Rhian Brewster, Dejan Lovren, and Ovie Ejaria have left, while the likes of Adam Lallana and Nathaniel Clyne have found new clubs after agreeing free transfers.
But they may not be done.
The domestic transfer window runs until Friday, allowing clubs to trade with EFL sides and Goal reports that there are a number of players who could leave before the end of the week.
Harry Wilson could move on, with Goal understanding that the club are open to offers for the winger, who spent last season on loan at Bournemouth.
Nat Phillips, a young defender, is also wanted by Championship sides, and Ben Woodburn could also move on, with League One clubs interested.
Both Liam Millar and Herbie Kane are also reported to be in line for loan moves as the window comes to an end.
Wilson is by far the most experienced of the five, playing regularly in the Premier League last term with Bournemouth.
Between the five, they have made 17 senior appearances for the club; Woodburn has made 11.
GIVEMESPORT’S Harry Sherlock says…
This makes complete sense but it does speak rather to talent hoarding.
Liverpool have clearly brought in a number of youngsters they simply don’t have room for.
The players here aren’t exactly fledgling; Wilson and Phillips are both 23 while Woodburn, Millar, and Kane are 21.
Their careers have not exactly stagnated but they may well have stalled, and one has to think that they should be looking for permanent deals instead of loan moves away.
One cannot imagine any of the quintet finding their way into the starting XI.News Now - Sport News
