Anfield boss begins clear-out.
Trio set to exit as Dalglish begins Liverpool clean out
Kenny Dalglish has begun a long-awaited cleanout at Liverpool, with Milan Jovanovic the first of a trio set for exits from the club over the next few weeks.
“On August 2 I will know whether or not I will move to Anderlecht,” Jovanovic told Belgian press.
“Then I have a meeting with the board. The interest is serious and the board really wants me.
“There is a big chance an agreement will be made.”
But Jovanovic isn’t the only Liverpool star looking at an exit from the club.
Alberto Aquilani has long made his ambitions to stay in Italy clear, and though a deal between Fiorentina and Liverpool looked to have fallen through, Aquilani’s agent insists a move is still on the cards.
“It remains possible”, said Zavaglia about Aquilani’s move to the Italian club.
“The deal is not at risk. I don’t know what to say in England, but he wants a transfer on a permanent basis.”
Thomas Ince is also looking to have completed an agreement with Championship side Blackpool, according to the Daily Mirror, leaving Dalglish to free up some funds to bring in new players to the Liverpool line up.

Kenny Dalglish has been heavily financed by Liverpool’s owners and after spending over £100m on new additions in 2011 it appears that the Anfield club are keen to get rid of some deadwood before the transfer window slams shut at the end of the month.
Serbian international Milan Jovanovic is almost certain to complete a move back to Belgium after a fairly pointless year at Liverpool, where more often than not he was used as a makeshift winger by Roy Hodgson when the bulky forward is more suited to playing up front.
Alberto Aquilani has impressed many with his pre-season performances but still looks likely to leave and a number of Serie A sides are reportedly tracking the former Roma man who last season did well during a loan spell at Juventus, unfortunately the Turin side were reluctant to meet Liverpool’s valuation. However AC Milan and Fiorentina have stated they’re interest in the 27 year old midfielder.
Though Kenny Dalglish appears more than willing to blood Liverpool’s young talent, with the likes of Jay Spearing, Martin Kelly, Jack Robinson and John Flanagan all featuring last term, it appears that Paul Ince’s son Thomas may be on his way out and a move to Blackpool would probably suit all concerned although some reports that such a move may only be a temporary one at first.
