Liverpool may be signing multiple players, but this will not come without at least one key loss.
The Reds have decided to sell 24-year-old defender Sebastian Coates to Sunderland for £4m after he disappointed in his Anfield stint.
Coates was expected to develop into a star player for Liverpool, but these expectations have not panned out as manager Brendan Rodgers hoped.
Sunderland already experienced Coates playing for their team in the 2014-15 season, as he was there on a loan deal.
They were able to escape relegation, as they finished in 16th place in the Premier League standings.
Coates coming to Sunderland also paid off for the team, as he showed promise for them as a defensive asset, so a £4m deal could turn into a bargain.
Although Coates was not a good fit for Liverpool, the Reds will still need to make every effort possible to shore up their defence that collapsed in a 6-1 loss in the regular season finale against Stoke City.
