The Merseyside club are in something of a financial mess at the moment, with their American owners owing around £350 million to creditors, and unable to stump up the cash at the moment. Will they have to start flogging players in January?
The bookmaker Paddy Power has reacted to the latest news at Anfield by creating odds on the next Liverpool player to be sold by the club. While it’s no surprise to see Jermaine Pennant as favourite (credit crunch or not, there’s enough rumours about the winger being sold on), there are some interesting prices for some of the other players in the Liverpool squad.
Fernando Torres may be telling everyone how much he loves life at Anfield, but the Spaniard would be first to leave if the club were in a desperate rush to try and raise funds. It’s interesting to note that they have a short price about Xabi Alonso leaving next, despite the midfielder featuring heavily for the team this season. Which player do Liverpool fans expect to see leave next?
