Players Who Could Potentially Attract Currency


Goalkeepers

With Adam Bogdan already leaving the Club following the expiration of his contract along with Karius playing out the 2nd season of his two-season loan with Besiktas, it seems unlikely Liverpool will sell Mignolet as he remains a decent back-up to Allison. However if Mignolet doesn't want to sit on the sidelines for another season, he could be sold for a price tag of around €10-15 million.


Defenders

The meteoric rise of Virgil Van Dijk to become the world's premier centre-back has created a new found stability in the Liverpool backline. Robertson and Alexander-Arnold have formed a lethal full-back combination that worry defences worldwide. With such a settled backline, Liverpool might see some of their fringe players transferred out of the club. Alberto Moreno and young defender Connor Randall have already felt the effects of this impressive defence.


Dejan Lovren

Position: Centre-Back

Age: 30

Market Value (According to Transfermakrt): €18 Million

The arrival of the youngster Sepp van den Berg spells bad news for the self proclaimed 'world's best defender'. The Croation, never fully in favour with the Kop could be sold due to his age as well as a lack of opportunity. Still with plenty of good football left in him, Lovren could attract a juicy price tag.

Potential Revenue: €20-25 Million


Nathaniel Clyne

Position: Right-Back

Age: 28

Market Value (According to Transfermakrt): €10.8 Million

The emergence of Liverpool's super full-backs is bad news for the Englishman who looks certain to be sold in the transfer-window. Spending the second-half of last season out on loan at Bournemouth was the beginning of the future for Clyne. Still a valuable player, he will be welcomed by many other Premier League clubs for a decent fee.

Potential Revenue: €10-15 Million


Anderson Arroyo

Position: Left-Back

Age: 19

Market Value (According to Transfermakrt): €150 Thousand

The young Colombian defender struggled out on loan at Gent and might be forced out due to a dearth of opportunity.

Potential Revenue: €500 Thousand-1 Million



Midfielders

With this Liverpool side winning trophies and seemingly top of their game, it looks as if some of the young talent will have to look elsewhere for opportunity. Exciting Serbian has not been sold and instead loaned out again for another season at Hertha Berlin. The likes of Keita, Fabinho, Wijnaldum, Henderson, Milner, Oxlade-Chamberlain and Lallana fighting for spots leaves little room for others.


Ovie Ejaria

Age: 21

Position: Central-Midfield

Market Value (According to Transfermakrt): €900 Thousand

Ejaria had a decent season out on loan last season, racking up the minutes in Scotland and in the Championship. However he did not light the world on fire and with so many options for Liverpool in midfield, he would've had to have made a bigger impact to stay at the Reds.

Potential Revenue: €2-4 Million


Pedro Chirivella

Age: 22

Position: Central-Midfield

Market Value (According to Transfermakrt): €800 Thousand

The Spanish midfielder had a disappointing season out on loan in the Spanish 2nd division and at 22 it looks like his time at the Reds has come to an end.

Potential Revenue: €1-2 Million



Forwards

Welcome to one of the most potent front-lines in world football, where flair, pace and clinical finishing come together in a lethal combination. Although the Reds have many exciting prospects pushing for a spot, the pure strength of this frontline seems unlikely to be messed with as 'if it ain't broke don't fix it'. These players should be therefore sold with high price tags on the table in order to generate substantial revenue. The sale of Danny Ings for around 20 million, Rafael Camacho for 5million and the release of Daniel Sturridge highlights the Red's aggressive transfer policy.


Harry Wilson

Age: 22

Position: Right-Winger

Market Value (According to Transfermakrt): €10.8 Million

After an outstanding breakout season with Derby, Wilson has attracted the attention of many top clubs who will be keen to take the talented Welshman off Liverpool's hands. Due to his potential, the price tag will be mouth-watering. It is a shame if he has to leave Liverpool but unfortunately a pathway into the side looks tough and it would be a waste to see such a player sit on the sidelines.

Potential Revenue: €25-35 Million


Ryan Kent

Age: 22

Position: Left-Winger

Market Value (According to Transfermakrt): €1.75 Million

A similar situation appears for the talented Ryan Kent who didn't hit the same goal scoring heights as Wilson but impressed nonetheless over in Scotland on loan at Rangers. Playing under Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard is an enticing proposition for the winger who has already expressed a desire to join the club permanently. With interest of both parties, Liverpool may be able to reign in a decent profit for Kent.

Potential Revenue: €10-15 Million


Taiwo Awoniyi

Age: 21

Position: Centre-Forward

Market Value (According to Transfermakrt): €4.5 Million

The powerhouse Nigerian forward has been an enigma for Liverpool fans as since joining Liverpool in 2015, he has been unable to pull on the jersey for his side due to the inability to obtain a working visa in England. This has meant multiple loan spells for the striker who as recently as the last 6 months scored 11 goals from his last 16 games. An exciting prospect, but the continual visa frustration has proven insurmountable. With CSKA vying for his signature, Awoniyi should be sold in the transfer window for quite a decent price. Despite his lack of games, being brought into the club for 400 thousand pounds and sold for upwards of 15 million is a decent bit of business.

Potential Revenue: €15-20 Million



Revenue So Far: €25 Million

Total Potential Revenue: €93.5-132 Million

This huge income would provide a huge boost to Liverpool's transfer budget without any substantial loss to the successful side that won the Champions League and were the most impressive runners-up in the history of the Premier League.

It is unlikely Liverpool will be very active in terms of acquiring players this summer, however this kind of profit might allow them to target one or two of football's big names on the market.
