LIVERPOOL are likely to fine tune their first-team squad in the summer transfer window instead of revamping their ranks.

It is a brilliant time to be a Liverpool fan - the club could seal their maiden Premier League title while Champions League glory remains a possibility.

Whether the Reds end their league title drought, a summer of smart signings is expected to strengthen Jurgen Klopp’s squad.

Klopp will need to make room for new additions, however.

Here, Starsport takes a look at six players that are likely to leave Liverpool in the summer.

Daniel Sturridge

The 29-year-old striker is out of contract at the end of the season.

Sturridge previously suggested he was eager to extend his deal but that has not been forthcoming after a season on the fringes.

Liverpool need to provide serious competition for Roberto Firmino and Germany

Real Betis have been linked with a move for Sturridge, who is surely eager to try his luck elsewhere.

Alberto Moreno

The 26-year-old is another first-team player out of contract in June.

Moreno has struggled to win over the Anfield faithful since arriving from Sevilla in 2014.

He is well behind Andy Robertson in the pecking order and Klopp could do with an upgrade on the Spaniard.

Liverpool prospect Adam Lewis, 19, has been tipped as potentially breaking into the first-team squad next term.

Divock Origi

It has been another frustrating campaign for the 23-year-old forward.

He was linked with a move away in January and is likely to be sold in the summer to raise funds.

Origi remains a player with potential but his failure to challenge Firmino should worry Klopp.

He will have one year left on his contract in the summer so it is time to cash in.

Nathaniel Clyne

The 27-year-old left Anfield for Bournemouth on a loan deal in January.

He will return to Anfield at the end of the season because his Cherries switch did not include a permanent option.

Clyne, who failed to make an impression in the first half of the season, is likely to be sold to bring in some cash to the club’s coffers.

Liverpool do not need to upgrade at right-back because of the presence of Trent Alexander-Arnold and Joe Gomez.

Sheyi Ojo

The 21-year-old surely has no future at Liverpool.

A less than productive loan spell at Fulham last term has been followed up by another disappointing temporary move to Reims this season.

Ojo, who impressed Klopp in the last pre-season, signed a long-term contract before heading to Reims.

But it is difficult to see him ever really becoming a first-team regular for the club.

Ryan Kent

Another winger unlikely to make the grade at Liverpool.

Kent has made a positive impression at Rangers since heading to Ibrox on loan last summer.

The Scottish Premiership giants are eager to seal his services on a permanent basis and a £4m price tag has been mooted.

A deal should be easy enough to cut with Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard in charge of Rangers.
