Liverpool plan £20m sale, Klopp eyes four targets, Phillips drops transfer hint

Liverpool are expected to splash the cash and shift some of their deadwood this summer in a bid to return to the top of English football next season.

The Reds went out with a whimper in the defence of their Premier League crown last term, with Jurgen Klopp conceding the title as early as February.

Reports therefore suggest he is set to undergo a squad revamp at Anfield in the summer transfer window and boost their chances of reclaiming top spot in the 2021/22 campaign.

Several players are being tipped to both leave and arrive on Merseyside over the coming months, and Daily Star Sport are on hand with the latest Liverpool transfer developments below.

Grujic price set

Marko Grujic is likely to seal a permanent move away from Liverpool after spending the last three-and-a-half years out on loan at Cardiff, Hertha Berlin and Porto.

The Liverpool Echo are reporting that Reds chiefs value Grujic, 25, at around £20million and are looking to cash in on him this summer.

The Serbia midfielder, who joined in a £5million switch from Red Star Belgrade back in 2016 and has made 16 appearances, is believed to be attracting attention from Porto following his recent loan stint.

Klopp eyes four stars

According to the Express, Klopp has urged Liverpool director Michael Edwards to sign four players in the summer transfer window.

Leicester and Brighton midfielders Youri Tielemans and Yves Bissouma are understood to be targets for the Reds boss, who is looking to replace outgoing star Georginio Wijnaldum in the middle of the park.

Leeds winger Raphinha, who is also attracting attention from Manchester United, and Red Bull Salzburg striker Patson Daka are also believed to be on Klopp's radar.

Phillips drops transfer hint

With Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez set to return from lengthy spells on the sidelines, and a £36million deal for Ibrahima Konate agreed, it remains to be seen where Nat Phillips' future lies next season.

The 24-year-old has hinted that he would be prepared to leave Liverpool this summer in search of regular first-team football, telling the Echo: "I have loved every minute of it and would love to carry on playing for the club.
