The Merseysiders have the funds to spend big again this summer under the soon-to-be-appointed manager.
But Uefa financial fair play restrictions mean they will have to sell before they can buy.

Everton turned down an £85million bid for Richarlison from Barcelona in January 2020 (Sky Sports).
He is under contract at Goodison Park until the summer of 2024 after signing a long-term deal in 2019.
However, the Brazilian had an underwhelming Premier League campaign as he only scored seven goals in 34 outings.
This is less than half of the 15 goals he scored in the 2019/20 campaign.
His best form came at the end of February as he scored four goals in four games.
Ancelotti, 61, left Everton this week to re-join his former side after just 18 months at Goodison Park.
This leaves the Toffees looking for a fifth permanent manager in as many years.
