Liverpool have the opportunity to raise further funds this summer, by selling five bit-part players…

Liverpool are in the midst of a huge turnover in players this summer, as they prepare their squad for a return to Champions League football after a four year absence.
The Reds have already seen star striker Luis Suarez leave for Barcelona in a £75m switch while fringe players Iago Aspas and Luis Alberto have completed loan moves to Sevilla and Malaga respectively.
Meanwhile, Brendan Rodgers’ side have already recruited Southampton pair Adam Lallana and Rickie Lambert, Bayer Leverkusen’s Emre Can and Benfica’s Lazar Markovic this summer in deals totalling around £60m.
However, with the Anfield club keen on making more signings, including the trio of Loic Remy, Dejan Lovren and Divock Origi – who are all believed to be close to sealing their respective moves to Merseyside, the Reds could do worse than to raise around £40m in additional funds by selling these five unneeded, bit-part players:
Many Liverpool fans will be devastated to see the loyal fan-favourite, Daniel Agger, leave the club this summer – but having already found first-team opportunities limited last term, the Danish international could be left out in the cold when Dejan Lovren arrives at the club.
The Reds already count Martin Skrtel and Mamadou Sakho among their first-choice centre backs, while Lovren will push Agger down to at least fourth choice. Brendan Rodgers also has the likes of Kolo Toure, Sebastian Coates, Martin Kelly and Tiago Illori on his books, and Agger’s £80,000-per-week wages could be enough to convince the Reds boss to let the 29-year-old leave.
