With so much talk orbiting around big money arrivals at Liverpool, it has been easy for the Reds in the Transfer Tavern to forget that the players Jurgen Klopp choses to sell this summer could have just as big an impact on shaping his squad.
Though the German has been active in the transfer market already, the type of player he choses to sell as he bids further craft a squad in his own enigmatic image will be just as fascinating.
One of those could be winger Jordon Ibe, who is thought to have been unhappy at the bit-part role he has had at Anfield under the former Borussia Dortmund coach.
Though clearly a highly rated talented, the 20-year old has failed to progress in what should have been a breakthrough season after the departure of Raheem Sterling last summer.
According to the Liverpool Echo, the Merseyside giants aren’t actively looking to sell the England under-21 international, though are braced for a flurry of interest.
Southampton and Watford are understood to be keeping watchful eyes over his situation at Anfield, with the Hornets having already snapped up Jerome Sinclair from Liverpool.
