Jurgen Klopp shouldn’t allow Sheyi Ojo to leave this summer

After Liverpool’s summer splurge, the club is now looking to offload some of their backup players.

With the amount of business Liverpool have done this summer, the Reds seem primed and ready to put together a title push.

With those additions to the squad, however, comes the need to cut out some deadwood from the squad. Liverpool will likely sell Divock Origi, Lazar Markovic, and Simon Mignolet. The club are also willing to let Sheyi Ojo go and according to The Guardian, West Brom and Wolfsburg are all considering a move for the young winger.

The Breakdown

According to the report, Liverpool are looking for £15 million for the youngster. Although Ojo had a good year on loan with Fulham, the £15 million price tag attached Ojo may seem fairly steep.

While the 21-year-old may not have a clear path to the first-team, selling the Liverpool academy graduate could be a big mistake by Klopp.

Yes, Ojo doesn’t have much experience, the winger has tonnes of talent. Moreover, at 21, Ojo still has plenty of time to develop and could benefit from training and playing with Mane and Salah every day. Equally, during a long and tough Premier League and European campaign, it’s unlikely that Klopp will be able to keep his front three fit and healthy throughout the duration. With Lazar Markovic told that he can leave the club, Ojo could well take his spot.

Liverpool need depth, and with Ojo, they have it already in house. It’d be a big risk for Klopp to sell the youngster, even though the winger may not have much experience, he could well be of value over the season.
