Anfield manager ready to ring the changes as he looks to improve squad.
Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is keen to sell a trio of players as he looks to bring in extra funds ahead of moves to bring in further additions to his Anfield squad.
Having seen his side beaten by West Brom Rodgers will look to strengthen his squad before the transfer window shuts at the end of the month. Liverpool’s American owners are reticent about pouring money into the transfer kitty having seen Kenny Dalglish spend over £120m only to see the Merseyside club move further away from the top four race.
Therefore Brendan Rodgers will look to partly fund significant moves in the current transfer window by pushing forward with moves to offload players he doesn’t see as being crucial to his plans both in the short and long-term.
Rodgers will work hard to find a buyer for Andy Carroll, a player he already tried to offload to West Ham only for the England international to refuse to make the move to Upton Park. Though the Liverpool boss is willing to use the forward he would prefer to accrue funds from his sale to help bring in an attacking alternative.
The Northern Irishman may even be willing to lower his valuation of the 23 year old to as little as £14m, less than half the £35m paid for the player just over 18 months ago. Brendan Rodgers will hope that such a move could entice prospective suitors to make an offer for Andy Carroll this month, with Newcastle United said to be the most likely to take the bait.
