There are five Liverpool players whose future for the 2021-22 season is currently up in the air in a special way: Georginio Wijnaldum, Divock Origi, Shaqiri, Oxlade-Chamberlain and Ozan Kabak. As the Liverpool Echo portal underlines, each one for their own circumstances. At the end of this season, which is being so hard for the Premier League champion, the club and those involved in some cases will have to decide.
Wijnaldum’s contract ends at the end of the season and, although he said that it would be “devastating” for him to leave Liverpool, if the ‘red’ club does not offer him conditions that the medium, at 30, one of the leaders of the champion team of the Premier, consider suitable to renew could go away. Barcelona has him among its objectives and, among others, Inter is also interested in Wijnaldum.
Shaqiri was about to leave Liverpool in the winter market, heading to Spain or Italy, but in the end he preferred to stay. The Swiss winger then had more minutes to play, but an injury left him out for a month. He has only started 5 games out of 19. Sevilla, Lazio and Fenerbahçe would be among the clubs interested in Xherdan Shaqiri, 29, whose contract ends in 2023.
The English media missed the first 3 months of the season due to a knee injury and afterwards he is not managing to get a position in the team. Klopp is a fan of Oxlade-Chamberlain and praised his performance last Monday against Wolves (0-1 for the ‘reds’, entered in 67′ by James Milner), but it cannot be ruled out that the former Arsenal player, 27 years and whose contract ends in 2023, change clubs this summer.
After his historic goals against Barcelona in the semifinals of the 2018-19 Champions League and in the final against Tottenham, Liverpool renewed the Belgian striker, but since then 25-year-old Origi, whose contract ends in 2024, has not been able to return to have great prominence. In fact, he has only started 9 of the last 67 Premier matches. Borussia Dortmund is one of the clubs that are said to be interested in Origi and there is talk of an offer of 13.8 million euros.
The young Turkish center-back arrived at Liverpool in the January market on loan from Schalke and, if he wants him to continue, the ‘red’ club, which has a non-compulsory purchase option, will have to pay 20.7 million euros. Ozan Kabak is going from less to more as a Liverpool player, in which he begins to shine as a couple in the axis of the rear with Nat Phillips.
