Liverpool players released this summer and what will happen next – fr


Liverpool’s frontal approach means they don’t have too many contract headaches this summer.
Gini Wijnaldum remains the obvious exception and the midfielder will leave the club as a free agent in a few weeks.

Across the rest of the squad, however, many of the club’s top stars are linked until at least 2022.

There will, over time, be work on this front and plans are already in place to speak with representatives like Alisson Becker and Fabinho in July.

Mohamed Salah and Virgil van Dijk may also find themselves at one point or another the subject of discussions on their own terms.

But for now, this summer is quite calm on this front.

Here are the Liverpool players whose contracts are running this summer as ECHO takes a look at what the future holds for them.

Gini Wijnaldum

With a heavy heart, Gini Wijnaldum will summon the time for a five-year decorated stay at Anfield at the end of June.

The Dutch midfielder played 51 times for Liverpool last season and coached them for the final games in the absence of Jordan Henderson and James Milner.

Freely admitting that he would have liked to have stayed beyond his current terms, Wijnaldum will now leave when a deal he first signed in July 2016 expires next month.

Barcelona appear to be in the lead at this point with Wijnaldum’s agent Humphry Nijman and legal adviser Jan Kabalt arriving at Camp Nou on Tuesday to discuss a deal.

“I’m fighting the tears right now,” the Reds midfielder said on Sunday after the 2-0 win over Crystal Palace.

“The people of Liverpool have shown me love during these five years. I will miss them.

“I hope I have played for the club for many years, but unfortunately things have changed. “

The Dutch international is leaving like a great modern-day Liverpool.

Must-see news from Liverpool FC

Adrian

The Spanish goalkeeper signed a two-year contract as a free agent in the summer of 2019.

He probably played more than he could have imagined at the time, having made 24 total appearances for the Reds in the past two seasons.

Injury and suspension of top-choice goalkeeper Alisson Becker have given the former West Ham man the opportunity to play more than just a role in cup competitions during his time at Anfield.

He made 11 appearances in the 19/20 Premier League season to help Liverpool win their first title in 30 years before making three more appearances last time around.

Reports this week suggested the goalkeeper was blocking on a new contract offer at Anfield in hopes of returning to Spain.

Liverpool could still dive into the market for more experience if Adrian leaves, but Caoimhin Kelleher made five appearances last season, indicating he was ahead of his teammate in the pecking order.

Yasser Larouci

The former Le Havre left-back is heading for the Anfield exit gate.

Larouci made his debut in the 1-0 FA Cup victory over Everton in January of last year, but has not made the senior squad once in the recent campaign.

With Andy Robertson recognized as one of the best in his position on the continent and the subsequent £ 11million arrival of Kostas Tskimikas, Larouci’s path to the first team has been blocked.

Leeds and Norwich were both interested last year, while Turkish giants Galatasaray were recently credited with an interest.
