Anfield squad set to get significantly smaller.
Finances at Anfield could be boosted as Fiorentina remain keen on a £4million deal for Emiliano Insua. Juventus have expressed an interest in Albert Riera and Chelsea still hope to wrap up a £6.5m deal for Yossi Benayoun. (Daily Mail)
Whilst almost every player in our squad has been linked with a move to Inter Milan its good to see some others clubs reportedly taking an interest as well. Without a manager at the reins, which is just ridiculous, there are no doubt loads of teams attempting to to deals whilst no one is looking but Christian Purslow says no one will leave until the vacant position is filled so who am I to argue.
That being said this source suggests that this trio are on their way out which brings a mixture of happiness and sadness in equal measure.
First lets start with Albert Riera. The Spaniard will surely leave this summer as he has been pretty damn average since the first day he arrived at the club. Too often the winger makes the wrong decision and almost always fails to deliver. There is no doubting the former Espanyol man has some talent its just getting a little boring waiting to see him use that ability whilst wearing a Liverpool shirt. A move to Serie A beckons.
Emiliano Insua is a good little player. Young and eager to get better I wouldn’t want to see the Argentine full back leave and I would imagine who ever the new boss is, Roy Hodgson seems favourite to take the job today, they will probably try to keep the pint sized 21 year old.
That bring us to Yossi Benayoun. It seemed he was all set to join Chelsea and it does seem a deal is quite far away down the line to being completed. This will be a tragedy in my book. The Israeli always makes things happen and tries his heart out every single time he takes to the field, something you can not easily say about everyone else at the club. If he goes to Stamford Bridge then they will have netted themselves an adaptable player who will give you 100% week in, week out.
Who else do my fellow Liverpool fans think will leave, and perhaps more importantly who do they WANT to see pack their bags and get going?
