Five Liverpool Stars Look Set to Depart Alongside Jurgen Klopp This Summer

Several Liverpool players might soon depart alongside Jurgen Klopp.

It’s not just Jurgen Klopp bidding farewell to Liverpool this summer as several players are expected to depart alongside the German. After nine years at the helm, Klopp is stepping down, making way for Feyenoord’s Arne Slot.

While the club have secured Klopp’s replacement, they must also address potential departures from the playing squad. Up to five players may leave in the coming weeks, with three facing contract expirations.

Joel Matip

Liverpool are approaching the end of Joel Matip‘s current contract without extending a new offer, despite his successful tenure since joining in 2016. It’s becoming increasingly likely that he won’t be with the team next season.

Adrian

Similarly, veteran goalkeeper Adrian, who hasn’t seen any competitive action this season, is expected to leave when his contract expires in the summer.

However, the possibility of him staying hinges on the decisions of the incoming manager, Slot.

Thiago Alcantara

Thiago Alcantara‘s tenure at Liverpool appears to be reaching its conclusion, as he’s unlikely to receive a contract extension. Despite a promising start in 2020, his tenure has been plagued by persistent injuries, leading to unmet expectations.

Nathaniel Phillips

In addition, Liverpool might bid farewell to players with contracts extending past this season. Nathaniel Phillips, keen on consistent playing time, could depart permanently following numerous loan stints away from Anfield.

Caoimhin Kelleher

Caoimhin Kelleher, Liverpool’s second-choice goalkeeper, might consider seeking a starting position elsewhere.

He’s shown his quality and is drawing attention from clubs like Nottingham Forest and Celtic, according to report. While it’s uncertain if he’ll depart, the question remains if he’ll accept another season as backup to Alisson Becker.

Although Klopp rates him highly and he’s contracted until 2026, the club might entertain offers if the right opportunity arises.
