Liverpool Ready To Let Two Promising Players Leave: How Much Will It Affect The Reds?

After spending almost £250 million this calendar year, Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp is looking to balance his spreadsheet by allowing the sale of some players. Two of the players who are set to a move away from Anfield are Danny Ings and Marko Grujic. The former looks set for a permanent move whereas the latter is going to spend another season on loan.

Danny Ings joined Liverpool in 2015 after having an impressive season with Burnley but has failed to maintain his fitness since then. He suffered ruptured cruciate ligaments in 2015, followed by a cartilage damage in the next season. In his three seasons with the Reds, he made only 14 Premier League appearances.

Marko Grujic also admitted that he would prefer a loan move rather than warming the bench at Liverpool and only play for the under-23s.


Many Premier League clubs like Crystal Palace, Newcastle United and Leicester City are interested to sign the Liverpool striker, Ings. Marko Grujic, on the other hand, has declined a loan move to Crystal Palace and is likely to favour joining Cardiff City. He helped Neil Warnock’s side gain promotion last year and Bluebirds want him to join up with the team for another season.


Liverpool has immense squad depth in both, the attacking and midfield department. Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah are the pre-decided front three for Liverpool. Xherdan Shaqiri, Daniel Sturridge, Divock Origi, Dominic Solanke and Lazar Markovic are the other options in the attacking department. After two frustrating seasons, Danny Ings will find it very hard to make his place in the starting XI.

After buying two midfielders for a hefty fee, Liverpool are stocked up in the midfield section as well. Naby Keita, Fabinho, Henderson, James Milner, Georginio Wijnaldum, Adam Lallana and Ben Woodburn have to fight for two or three positions available in the centre of the park.

Marko Grujic is a talented lad but will find it very hard to break into the first-team. Continuing the process of his development at this age is very important and a loan move is an ideal choice for him right now.

Liverpool should sell Danny Ings to lighten some pressure on their wage structure and also help the player kickstart his career once again. Marko Grujic was Klopp’s first signing but failed to cement his place in his team. He is still young and has three years left in his contract. Letting him leave for a loan spell at a club where he will play week in and week out can be the best deal for Liverpool as he remains a player with great promise and potential.
