Liverpool turn their focus to getting rid of players with their ‘incoming business finished’ | Daily Mail Online

Liverpool have reportedly finished their incoming business for this transfer window following the acquisitions of Thiago Alcantara and Diogo Jota last week. 

A report in on Tuesday stated that the Reds were still keen on strengthening their attack, with a £36m deal for Watford striker Ismaila Sarr and a loan move for out-of-favour Barcelona winger Ousmane Dembele on the table. 

However, after Jurgen Klopp moved for Thiago and Jota last week for a combined outlay of £65m, the  says those deals concluded Liverpool’s transfer business in terms of signings this summer – though a number of first-team players could still be on their way out.

Out-of-favour Barcelona winger Ousmane Dembele has also been linked with a loan deal

The Reds earlier in the window also bought Greek left back Kostas Tsimikas from Olympiacos for £11.75m. 

However, the report details that some members of the first-team could still be on their way out before the international transfer deadline on October 5. 

The future of 20-year-old striker Rhian Brewster is not certain, with Crystal Palace interested in the England Under-17 World Cup winner. 

Klopp would prefer a loan move for the young striker, who missed the decisive penalty in the Community Shield defeat to Arsenal last month, but the Premier League champions have not ruled out a permanent deal.

Sheffield United are also eyeing a move for Brewster, who scored three goals in pre-season for the Reds. 

Midfielder Marko Grujic, who spent the last two years on loan with Hertha Berlin, is another player who could leave Anfield in the coming weeks, as could Xherdan Shaqiri. 

The Swiss international has struggled for form and fitness since his signing in the summer of 2018, with the Reds privately setting an asking price of £25m for the 28-year-old. 

Harry Wilson, who spent last season on loan at Bournemouth, is another fringe player who could be sold by the champions before the deadline in 12 days’ time.

Newcastle United, Southampton and Leeds are all reportedly interested in the free-kick specialist. 

Loris Kairus, who has returned to the club after the conclusion of his two-year loan deal at Besiktas, is surplus to requirements, while Ben Woodburn is attracting interest from Eredivisie side Sparta Rotterdam. 

Sarr, meanwhile, is also of interest to Everton and Manchester United, while Aston Villa have entered the race, believing the lure of first-team football could swing things in their favour.
