Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is preparing to offload some of the players deemed surplus to requirements currently in his squad.
After another busy summer bringing players in, Rodgers is aware of the fact that he may need to trim his squad down.
That could see the likes of Mario Balotelli, Fabio Borini, Jose Enrique and Lucas Leiva all leave given that they are on the fringes.
While Rodgers didn’t single any players out, he accepted that some will want to move on as they are not likely to receive the playing time that they would hope for.
“It is natural at this stage of the season there will be moves for sure for some players. What is clear is that every player is understanding of exactly where he stands in the squad,” Rodgers said, according to Sky Sports.
“The spirit is strong but of course it is a difficult situation with the transfer market still being open until the end of the month.”
In contrast, the Liverpool boss insisted that Alberto Moreno and Lazar Markovic, brought in last summer for £12m and £20m respectively, both have a role to play this year.
