Liverpool To Sell Quartet for £22m: One Good; Three Average

Four heading for Anfield exit.

The Rumour

Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez hopes to raise transfer funds by selling fringe players this summer.

The Mirror says with the likes of Ryan Babel, Andrea Dossena, Andriy Voronin and Sebastian Leto all up for sale, Benitez could raise another £20m for his kitty.

The Analysis

This source seems confident that Rafa is in a forced predicament of having to sell before he can buy and to be fair regardless of the financial situation Benitez could do with rooting out some of the deadwood but are all these four in need of offloading?

Clearly Voronin won’t be back, especially after recent comments from his wife about how England is the last place she wants to return to. Dossena is more than likely to be sacrificed as the off form full back looks to resurrect his career back in Italy. Argentine Leto has had a mountain of problems whilst at Anfield, mostly relating to passport issues and he looks likely to not return to the club.

That leaves Ryan Babel, the player of the four who would of course bring in the most funds but should the Liverpool boss sell the winger? After two up and down seasons the jury is well and truly out on the Dutchman but if I were Benitez i would hold off on selling the former Ajax man and maybe even consider sending him out on loan instead?

The Likelihood

Four to leave Liverpool: Three are probably already packing their bags.
