Exclusive: Liverpool now makes 2 first-team players available for transfer
Curtis Jones and Nat Phillips are two players at Liverpool who are at very different stages of their careers.
Jones, the midfielder, was highly regarded as a young talent but has not lived up to expectations, while Phillips, the center-back, has been a useful squad player but may be looking for more regular playing time.
Time of departure for Jones?
For Jones, it may be time for him to move on from Liverpool in order to kickstart his career. Despite showing promise early on, he has not developed as expected and is not good enough to start for a top club like Liverpool.
However, he could still be a valuable asset for mid-table Premier League clubs and could benefit from a fresh start.
Liverpool could use the funds from his departure to invest in high-quality central midfielders who can help transform the team into title contenders once again.
Phillips may seek new opportunities
As for Phillips, while he has been a useful player for Liverpool, he may be reaching a point in his career where he needs to play more regularly.
With Liverpool likely to invest in a new center-back, it may be a good time for Phillips to seek a new opportunity elsewhere.
Liverpool could also benefit from selling him while his value is still high and using the proceeds to invest in a new center-back who can partner with the likes of Virgil van Dijk.
Overall, Klopp has a major rebuild ahead of him at Liverpool and will need to make some tough decisions about which players to keep and which to let go.
While both Jones and Phillips have contributed to the team in the past, it may be time for them to seek new opportunities elsewhere, while Liverpool can use the proceeds from their departures to invest in the high-quality players they need to become title contenders once again.
