Anfield outfit to lose three stars to bring in more.
Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers will offload three big names at the club in the new year in a bid to make sure his squad are re-enforced for the second half of the season after suffering back-to-back defeats in the Premier League this week.

CaughtOffside understands that Brendan Rodgers is already under pressure this season thanks to back-to-back defeats to Aston Villa and West Ham and is now being told that he needs to do something to arrest the alarming slide down the table.
It is believed that he will be backed financially in the January transfer market but has been told that he will have to let three players leave before they can bring anybody in.
Rodgers is hoping that with the kitty that the Liverpool owners give him, the sale of the three stars will allow him to raise up to £40m for new investments in the new year.
Glen Johnson is believed to be the first name on his chopping board, though he is aware that losing the Ivorian will be for the benefit of the wage bill and not the transfer funds as he is now in his final year at the club.
Johnson has come in for criticism lately, with fans judging the England international to be past his best and links to Porto’s Danillo have touted him as a replacement.
