Football expert names players likely to leave Liverpool with Klopp


Football transfer expert and journalist Ben Jacobs has spoken on the possibility of key players such as Mohamed Salah, Virgil van Dijk and Trent Alexander-Arnold following Jurgen Klopp out of Liverpool.

He believes that the club would try to keep the players beyond the summer when the German gaffer would be leaving Anfield.

The three players contracts will expire in 2025 and they are yet to pen a new deal as they wait for a new manager to arrive at Anfield.

Klopp would be reportedly replaced by Arne Slot and Jacobs told GiveMeSport that the new manager is keen on keeping the trio.

He admitted, however, that there was a chance of the Egyptian being sold to Saudi Pro League sides to generate money for a squad rebuild.

“The consideration for Slot will be more about how he is going to deal with Trent Alexander-Arnold position-wise, and Liverpool naturally want him to extend [his contract]. In addition, Virgil van Dijk and Mohamed Salah – will they stay or go with Jurgen Klopp?

“Salah in particular, was he to be sold to Saudi Arabia, would generate – in likelihood – enough money for Liverpool to move quite aggressively in the summer market.

‘But of course, Slot and many in the Liverpool hierarchy would also be extremely keen on keeping Salah.”
