Liverpool look to make £100m for selling fringe players

Liverpool could raise as much as £100m this summer as Jurgen Klopp prepares to sanction the sales of several of the club’s fringe players.

The Liverpool boss is preparing for another important summer in the transfer market, with the club likely to raise significant funds from the departures of several out-of-favour stars.

The club are believed to have received enquiries for several of their loan stars, with youngsters Marko Grujic and Harry Wilson having impressed in spells away from Anfield.

According to the Liverpool Echo, Klopp will make a decision on whether to retain or sell that duo this summer, with both having shown promise. Neither is likely to break into the first-team next season, and each player could attract a bid in the region of £20m.

Wilson has been a stand-out performer for Derby in the Championship this season, scoring 18 goals in all competitions for Frank Lampard’s side. The Rams have reached the play-off final and should they earn promotion would likely be interested in retaining the 22-year-old’s services, either on-loan or a permanent basis.

Midfielder Grujic has also impressed during a spell in the Bundesliga with Hertha Berlin. Klopp is believed to be a fan of the 23-year-old, though with competition for a midfield place high at Anfield he could be sold to generate funds.

Full-back Nathaniel Clyne looks certain to move on having spent the second half of last season at Bournemouth. Eddie Howe’s side could be interested in a permanent deal but will face competition with Liverpool valuing the 28-year-old at around £15m.

Goalkeeper Simon Mignolet is also believed to want first-team football, with the Belgian international having spent the majority of the past two seasons as back-up. Liverpool would likely demand a fee in excess of £10m for the former Sunderland goalkeeper.

Elsewhere, young talents such as Rafa Camacho and Ryan Kent could also leave. The former is attracting interest from his native Portugal with Sporting Lisbon readying a bid.

Kent has impressed during a loan spell at Steven Gerrard’s Rangers, being nominated for PFA Scotland’s Players Player of the Year. Rangers would like to secure the winger on a permanent basis, though are unlikely to be able to match Liverpool’s £12m asking price.

Youngsters such as Sheyi Ojo and Ovie Ejaria are also likely to move on. The duo spent last season on loan at Stade Reims and Reading respectively and will be deemed surplus to requirements.
