No fewer than three members of the midfield ranks at Premier League giants Liverpool are in line to move on next summer, according to reports.
Jurgen Klopp’s options in the middle of the park, of course, have long represented something of a contentious subject amongst those of a Liverpool persuasion.
This comes amid the collective agreement that the powers that be at Anfield have long come up short in efforts to supply the club’s head coach with a crop of midfielders capable of competing with the best the continent has to offer.
Add to this the alarming dip in form suffered by Fabinho of late, and Thiago Alcantara’s ongoing fitness woes, and the situation becomes an even more pressing one.
In turn, it will no doubt come as music to the ears of Reds supporters across the globe to hear of a shake-up being prepped to the engine room ranks on Merseyside.
As per a report from the Liverpool Echo, no fewer than three midfield stars are in line to depart Liverpool come the close of the campaign.
The trio in question? Soon-to-be out contract James Milner, Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.
