Liverpool have found themselves at the centre of attention during the close season thus far. Brendan Rodgers has been busy in the transfer market, bringing in a total of four new players so far as he attempts to build a squad capable of challenging for the top four.
At the other end of the scale, most of the attention – as per usual – has been on Luis Suarez, with the Uruguayan’s future still very much up in the air.
Whilst he has been pushing for a move abroad, the only club to offer him an escape route from Merseyside has been Arsenal – whose £30 million bid over the weekend was flatly rejected.
Liverpool supporters will no doubt not want to lose Suarez, especially after his heroic performances last season (the bite on Branislav Ivanovic aside) which saw him net 30 goals in all competitions, and play half a season as the clubs only fit and available striker.
There could however be a few that Reds supporters may want to see leave Anfield through the back door, as last season’s inconsistent results often came down to the same players underperforming.
Here we have drawn up a list of 5 players we feel Liverpool supporters would be glad to see the back of.
