Liverpool has spent a lot of money since January, and is looking to bring some back to Anfield.

The Reds have splashed major dough on Virgil Van Dijk, Naby Keita, Alisson, Fabinho, and Xherdan Shaqiri, the outlay surpassing what came in for Philippe Coutinho, Mamadou Sakho, and Danny Ward.

Now, reports, Liverpool is planning to part ways with seven senior players.

The list includes Divock Origi, Simon Mignolet, and Danny Ings, with Lazar Markovic and Pedro Chirivella also on the block.

The report says Jurgen Klopp would like to sign Marko Grujic to a new deal before a season-long loan to Cardiff City, but that would make a sixth departure. The seventh is Sheyi Ojo, who could be a sale or loan.

Getting rid of both Origi and Ings might seem risky at first glance, but the Reds have depth behind Roberto Firmino that goes further than Dominic Solanke and Daniel Sturridge. Youngsters Rhian Brewster and Ben Woodburn could have a chance to make a dent in Klopp’s First Team plans, though both are candidates for loans.
