25 players Liverpool has discarded in this transfer window

2016_08_15-13_22_40-1087

The summer transfer window for 2016 has finally closed. Liverpool has got rid of a number of fringe players who wouldn’t have played this year. Most noticeably:

  • Jose Enrique
  • Kolo Touré
  • Martin Skrtel
  • Joe Allen
  • Jordon Ibe
  • Luis Alberto
  • Christian Benteke
  • Mario Balotelli

and some youngsters who, unfortunately, have not been able to make the grade:

  • Brad Smith
  • Ryan McLaughlin
  • João Carlos Teixeira
  • Jordan Rossiter
  • Jerome Sinclair
  • Samed Yesil

while Steven Caulker has returned from loan. Additionally, the following players have been loaned to other clubs with the hope that they will develop further and, maybe one day, reach a level where they can play at Liverpool:

  • Adam Bogdan
  • Danny Ward
  • Ryan Fulton
  • Andre Wisdom
  • Jon Flanagan
  • Lloyd Jones
  • Allan Rodrigues de Souza
  • Jack Dunn
  • Lazar Markovic
  • Ryan Kent
  • Taiwo Awoniyi

Good luck to all of them!!!

Liverpool transfers up to now

stats_small

Up to now, Liverpool has sold or released Brad Smith, Jose Enrique, Kolo Touré, Martin Skrtel, Ryan McLaughlin, João Carlos Teixeira, Joe Allen, Jordan Rossiter, Jordon Ibe, Christian Benteke, Jerome Sinclair and Samed Yesil. According to rumours, Luis Alberto and Mario Balotelli are being sold today. Quite a drastic clearing I would say…

To replace them, Alex Manninger, Loris Karius, Joel Matip, Ragnar Klavan, Georginio Wijnaldum, Marko Grujic and Sadio Mané have been acquired. The transfer window closes tomorrow and it is possible for Liverpool to buy until then.

The following first team players are on loan to other clubs for the year: Adam Bogdan, Danny Ward, Ryan Fulton, John Flanagan, Lloyd Jones, Allan Rodrigues de Souza, Jack Dunn and Taiwo Awoniyi.
