Liverpool hope to bring in huge £65m for 3 non-starters this summer

Liverpool hope to bring in around £65m for three non-starters this summer. It remains to be seen if they’ll get their wish.

The Athletic reports that Liverpool hope to bring in around £65m when selling three non-starting players this summer. Of course, that depends on teams paying their asking prices.

Caoimhin Kelleher is the priciest of the trio. The Irishman has made no secret of his desire to be a no.1 goalkeeper going forward, something that isn’t going to happen at Liverpool unless Alisson Becker leaves.

The Reds are going to hold onto him until a big offer comes in, though. The asking price is at £25m but no team has put anything close to that on the table. Nottingham Forest did make a bid of around £15m back in January, but Liverpool rejected it.

Tyler Morton is another who could leave. Liverpool want £20m for him and RB Leipzig are interested in signing the midfielder after an impressive year on loan with Hull City.

There’s still a very good chance that Morton earns a place in Arne Slot’s plans this preseason but Liverpool are open to selling him for a big offer.

Sepp van den Berg is a very interesting one. Again, Liverpool want £20m but the Dutchman has been very firm on his desire to leave. Van den Berg even publicly claimed the Reds are jeopardising his career with a high asking price - he’s eager to leave for below that figure.

Liverpool to sell squad players

Morton feels like the most likely to leave for the asking price, in truth. Van den Berg will push to leave for lower - and clubs will surely try to take advantage of that.

Kelleher, on the other hand, may not leave at all. Liverpool need three reliable goalkeepers next season and Adrian is almost certainly leaving on a free transfer. Letting Kelleher leave makes little sense without a huge fee but it’s completely unclear who would pay £25m for him right now.

£65m would be incredible business for three players that aren’t first-team regulars - two of whom have never been senior squad regulars, in fact. But there’s a long way to go.
