Michael Edwards Ready to Make Brutal Decision on “World-class” Liverpool Star with Three Targets Being Scout

Michael Edwards, the recently appointed CEO of Football at Liverpool, is purportedly plotting to offload a “world-class” player from the Reds this summer, while simultaneously scouting three potential replacements.

Last summer, Liverpool impressively revamped their midfield, parting ways with Fabinho and Jordan Henderson while opting not to extend contracts for Naby Keita, James Milner, and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

Jurgen Klopp orchestrated these changes, bringing in Alexis Mac Allister, Dominik Szoboszlai, Wataru Endo, and Ryan Gravenberch, bolstering their midfield and propelling Liverpool into a formidable Premier League title challenge.

With a strengthened midfield, Liverpool now turn their attention to reinforcing other areas in the upcoming summer transfer window. Bayer Leverkusen’s Jeremie Frimpong has emerged as a target after a stellar season, contributing eight goals and seven assists for the Bundesliga leaders.

Sporting CP’s Ruben Amorim has emerged as the frontrunner to take the helm as the new manager ahead of the next season’s kick-off.

The incoming manager faces the crucial task of securing key players like Trent Alexander-Arnold, Virgil van Dijk, and Mohamed Salah, whose contracts expire next summer, with no extension agreements currently in place.

Additionally, Joel Matip and Thiago are set to become free agents at the end of this season, indicating that they are unlikely to renew their contracts and will depart the club.

As per the latest report from HITC, Edwards is prepared to offload Salah during the upcoming summer transfer window, marking a significant decision on his part.

He is willing to allow him to move on “if as expected, the former Chelsea player makes it clear he is ready to make the move to the Middle East”.

Nico Williams, Pedro Neto, and Florian Wirtz, from Athletic Bilbao, Wolves, and Leverkusen respectively, are potential replacements if the 31-year-old departs, offering youthful and exciting options on the wings.

While it’s unlikely for Salah to join the Saudi Pro League this summer given his current form, the Egyptian winger, still close to his prime, remains a world-class talent despite a quieter spell since returning from injury, as noted by Klopp.

At 31, Salah likely has several years of quality play ahead, particularly considering his diligent self-care.

However, if Edwards deems this summer as an opportune moment to sell him, his track record in transfers warrants confidence, as former Liverpool CEO Peter Moore hailed him as a “genius” in the market. Nonetheless, it’s a significant decision that may be judged unfavorably in hindsight.
