These 2 Players Might Leave Liverpool In The Summer And It Would Be Better For Them If They Did
Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool have been the most exciting side this season in the Premier League and stand as the top goal scorers in the country. Their issues with sides that sit back and defend has cost them dearly this season as they are in 4th in the points table, with a decent chance of qualifying for the Champions League. Klopp is confident that his team have what it takes to finish in the top-4 and has been looking to improve the squad this summer. The German has been linked with some of the brightest prospects in Europe and this might see a few players leave by the end of the season. A couple of players are on the fringes of the first team and they might not be at Anfield come the start of the next campaign:
Not many fans will agree with this one but Liverpool might let the French international leave the club on a permanent basis at the end of the season. The first choice defender for Klopp in the last few months of the previous season, Sakho was stuck in a drug abuse charge by the WADA that spoiled his club and national career in the space of a couple of months. Though he was freed of all the charges, his antics in the pre-season tour at the start of the season angered Jurgen Klopp who froze him out of the first team even before the start of the season. Sakho has since not played for the Liverpool senior side and was sent out on loan on the deadline day in January. He has been exceptional under Sam Allardyce at the Selhurst Park keeping 3 consecutive clean sheets but it is hard to see Klopp give him a chance in the first team at Anfield next season, especially as he is looking to add another defender to his squad in the summer. Linked with a move to Kostas Manolas and Virgil van Dijk in the summer, Liverpool have no real place for Sakho and are left with just one option, which is to let him go. Surely, he will not be playing for the club come the start of the next season.
Leiva is the player with most appearances for the club in the current squad, and he is a favorite for Jurgen Klopp and the Anfield faithful. Klopp has used him extensively in a center-back role this season and has brought him on when they needed to close games off but Lucas is far from the first choice at the club this season and would be willing to look elsewhere for regular game time. At 30, he has enough football left under his belt for at least a couple of years, and with Liverpool ready to strengthen the midfield and the defence of the squad, the Brazilian might find it hard to get any kind of game time next season. The likes of Galatasaray, Stoke City and Atletico Mineiro are still interested in him and it might time for the long-serving midfielder to quit Anfield at the end of the season.
