Our friends at Empire of the Kop recently compiled a list of nine players that they would like to see move to Anfield as part of any swap deal taking Raheem Sterling away from Liverpool.

Premier League trio Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester City have all been linked with the forward. However, while none of the three may be willing to shell out the £50 million the Reds are believed to want for the player, they could all tempt Liverpool by offering Brendan Rodgers some of their ‘dead wood’.
City appear to be in need of a major shake-up following their indifferent campaign last term. A swap deal for Sterling could help them offload some of their unwanted players and also lower the average age of their squad.
Here are three Citizens stars that our comrades at EOTK would like to see move to Anfield should Sterling go in the opposite direction this summer.
