Due to the ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic, Liverpool Fc most likely will have a limited transfer budget to work with.
Liverpool Fc (The Reds) will look to adopt more “Horses For Courses” approach. Then depending on the situation, the Reds will first look to offload some players and buy new players that can improve the current squad.
The Reds Players that are likely to Leave During the Summer 2020 Transfer Window:
1. Marko Grujić: Being Jürgen Klopp’s first signing as Reds Manager; Grujić has been on loan for 2 years with Hertha Berlin.
With the upcoming short pre-season the young Serbian may have few chances to shine.
But with Reds stacked with Midfield options, it’s difficult to envisage how he can break into the Reds Starting XI.
Verdict: Given at his age, Grujić would want to play more and be part of the Starting XI on regular basis.
So, it wouldn’t be a surprise that the Reds would look to offload the former Red Star Belgrade player.
2. Harry Wilson: The highly talented young Welshman was part of the relegated Bournemouth side and was quite impressive.
With the ability to play either as Left or Right Winger, Wilson could have been the ideal foil for Sadio Mané or Mohamed Salah.
But that’s looks very unlikely with the recent arrival of the Takumi Minamino from Fc Red Bull Salzburg and Klopp’s preference to play Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in either of the wings.
Verdict: Wilson will be much better suited to play for rival Premier League Clubs or other Clubs that can offer him regular football. For both the player and the club sake, selling the player would be the win-win situation.
3. Divock Origi: The Summer 2020 Transfer Window would be very significant for Origi in particular.
A player that had a lot of memorable performances in the past.
He also surely would bring a lot of debate among Reds Fans about his Reds career.
Klopp’s preference to stick with the formidable familiar trident (of Mané, Firmino and Salah) had consigned Origi to play mainly as a backup.
Verdict: Origi is still young with plenty of potential. Similar to Wilson and Grujić, the young Belgian needs to play regular football.
He needs to revive his career (especially with the postponed Euro 2020 Tournament in mind).
As good as a player Origi is, selling him would be the ideal thing to do, if Reds do decides to bite the bullet. The young Beligan will still be a Reds Cult Hero regardless of whatever happens in the future.
4. Loris Karius: Needless to say, the German has absolutely no future. The unflappable Alisson Becker has firmly established as #1 Goalkeeper and Adrián as #2 Goalkeeper. Besides no one needs to be reminded of his infamous and innumerable goalkeeping blunders.
Verdict: Regardless, selling Karius would be the only logical sense.
3 Players that already departed the Reds during the Summer 2020 Transfer Window: Nathaniel Clyne, Dejan Lovren (Sold to FC Zenit Saint Petersburg) and Adam Lallana (Free Transfer – Brighton & Hove Albion Football Club)
