Liverpool news: The five players Reds must get rid of two they need to give new contract | Football | Sport


Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp and the club’s hierarchy will soon have some decisions to make over whether to keep or let go some of their first-team squad.

That is because there are four players out of contract at the end of this season and another four in the summer of 2021.

Liverpool will have to decide whether they want to cash in on some of them in January or risk losing them for free at the end of their deals.

Express Sport has analysed whether each of the eight players should be kept or allowed to leave Anfield.

Liverpool players out of contract in 2020

Nathaniel Clyne – let go

Clyne has been hampered by injury problems during the last two season and has lost his place in the side to Trent Alexander-Arnold.

At 28, he still has plenty to offer another Premier League side.

Adam Lallana – let go

Lallana has also had a terrible time with injuries during the last two years.

The former Southampton captain needs to move elsewhere to get regular game time again.

James Milner – keep

Milner is Mr Reliable in Jurgen Klopp’s squad and even though he will turn 34 in January, he is definitely worth at least another year.

His coolness under pressure to score the late winning penalty against Leicester shows his value to the Reds.

Adrian – keep

Spanish goalkeeper Adrian has filled in admirably during Alisson’s absence due to injury.

A more than capable back up who will surely be happy playing that role for a couple more years at least.

Loris Karius – let go

Karius has not played a match for Liverpool since that infamous Champions League final defeat to Real Madrid.

Besiktas, whom currently have the German on loan, do have an option to sign him next summer if they so wish.

Dejan Lovren – let go

Lovren was linked with a move away from Anfield in the summer.

He has lost his place to Joel Matip and will want to leave to ensure he stays in the Croatia side.

Georginio Wijnaldum – keep

Wijnaldum defines what Klopp wants from a midfielder.

The Dutchman has started all eight Premier League games so far this season.
