Liverpool: Fee agreed for Liam Millar sale

Liverpool: Fee agreed for Liam Millar sale - Liverpool News

Liverpool ‘have now agreed’ a £1.3million fee with Swiss side FC Basel for forward Liam Millar, according to The Athletic‘s James Pearce.

The lowdown

Millar joined Liverpool from Fulham back in 2016 and has since been loaned out on three occasions.

He had two spells in the Scottish Premiership with Kilmarnock, for whom he scored two goals and provided three assists in 36 appearances.

The Canadian then joined Charlton Athletic, this time posting nine direct goal contributions (three goals, six assists) in the latter half of the 2020/21 campaign.

When he was Liverpool Under-18 boss, club legend Steven Gerrard hailed Millar as an ‘athlete’ with ‘turbo pace’.

The latest

In a ‘good deal for all involved’, the Reds have been able to negotiate a 20% sell-on clause.

Millar’s move could kick-off what’s ‘expected to be a busy few weeks’ of sales on Merseyside.

Pearce has previously reported that, after the £35million signing of Ibrahima Konate, Liverpool will have to fund further moves through outgoings.

The verdict

Liverpool have done some good business here. During his time at The Valley, Millar underlined his promise, and at the age of 21 he can still make huge strides.

But the Reds have staved off any potential regret through that hefty sell-on clause, and he was unlikely to ever make a major impact in the first team given the quality of attacker at Jurgen Klopp’s disposal.

Attention must now turn to more lucrative sales, though those could depend upon more realistic price-tags. Otherwise, New York Times journalist Rory Smith has warned the club that ‘they’re in for a real shock’.
