Liverpool to offload two expensive recruits

BentekeLiverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern are shocked today to read reports that new Reds manager Jurgen Klopp is plotting to offload two expensive recruits next year.

The German arrived at Anfield last week, replacing Brendan Rodgers, and former Liverpool man Stan Collymore believes Adam Lallana and Christian Benteke, who signed for a combined total of over £50m, will be offloaded by Klopp.

“Benteke and Sturridge will almost have to reinvent themselves. Daniel can do it, make no mistake. But he’s going to have to prove his fitness to be in the manager’s long-term plans. As for Christian, I honestly don’t know if he’ll make it.”

“Adam Lallana is another player who for me doesn’t fit the profile.”

Despite Collymore’s views, both players will have a chance to prove themselves to their new boss as the window doesn’t reopen until January- which means Klopp will have to cope with what he’s got at Anfield for the time being.

Our Liverpool punters are under no illusions that these two Brendan Rodgers signings, who they’re uninspired by, must up their game if they are to have a long-term future at Anfield.

Liverpool fans, would getting rid of Lallana and Benteke be a major mistake? Let us know in the comments below!
