Liverpool are willing to let six players leave Anfield in the next 48 hours, according to a report.
The former Borussia Dortmund manager has brought in six new players this summer, and needs to trim his squad.
The Liverpool Echo claims that versatile defender Andre Wisdom is set to move north as Celtic look to sign a right-back this summer. Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers gave Wisdom his senior debut at Liverpool in 2012 and is a fan of the former Under-21 international.
Luis Alberto has been told he can leave after making just 12 appearances for the Reds since signing in a £6.8million move from La Liga side Sevilla.
Italy international Mario Balotelli has also been looking for another club, with teams from France’s Ligue 1, Italy’s Serie A and Turkey’s SuperLig all interested after the striker was told to train with the reserve side.
Serbia international Lazar Markovic is also on the transfer list at Anfield, after the signings of Sadio Mane and Georginio Wijnaldum pushed him further down the pecking order. A loan move to Galatasaray last term failed to improve his first-team prospects.
Four European clubs are said to be interested in taking Tiago Ilori on loan, after the Portugal Under-23 international has had loan spells with Granada, Bordeaux and Aston Villa since his Merseyside switch.
Youngster Connor Randall is another that is expected to leave in a loan deal, with Championship new boys Wigan expected to snap the 20-year-old up.
In other Liverpool transfer news, this midfielder has signed for these Euro giants after reportedly interesting Liverpool earlier in the window.
