Liverpool target £100m fire sale to boost Jurgen Klopp’s transfer warchest

LIVERPOOL hope to raise around £100million in sales to help bolster Jurgen Klopp’s transfer kitty.

Mohamed Salah arrived last week for a reported £36.9million, making him the club’s new record transfer.

But Klopp is not ready to stop there with moves for Naby Keita, Virgil van Dijk, Faouzi Ghoulam and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain all rumoured.

Liverpool owners Fenway Sports Group have made it clear they are ready to support Klopp and are keen to offload as many players as possible to help.

According to the Liverpool ECHO, up to 10 players could leave Anfield this summer with Klopp viewing them as surplus to requirements.

Mamadou Sakho was sent on loan to Crystal Palace in January after not making an appearance for the Reds in the first half of the season following a row with Klopp.

Palace are understood to be keen on making the move for Sakho permanent and the imminent appointment of Frank de Boer could push the £30m deal over the line.

Daniel Sturridge struggled with fitness throughout last season and even when fit Klopp opted to use Roberto Firmino as his main striker.

With the World Cup next summer, Sturridge will want regular football football to seal a place in Gareth Southgate’s England team but it’s claimed Liverpool won’t accept less than £30m for him.

Lazar Markovic and Alberto Moreno are likely to leave after losing the confidence of Klopp.

Veteran Lucas Leiva could also make way for the arrival of new players while Kevin Stewart’s hopes of regular football at Anfield are slim.

Jon Flanagan, Cameron Brannagan, Pedro Chirivella and Connor Randall are also mentioned as possible departures.
