    Who should they keep and whose time is up?

    Liverpool squad assessment: Who should they keep and whose time is up?

    Liverpool have been the most in-form team in world football since the turn of the year, having lost just once (1-0 in the Champions League to Inter Milan) in 2022.

    While they will not win the quadruple, pipped to the Premier League on the final day of the season by Manchester City, this is a squad in its prime that could still pick up a cup treble with a Champions League final win over Real Madrid in Paris.

    But what about beyond that? How does the squad evolve? 101 took a look at every member of Jurgen Klopp’s side and took a look at who should stay, and whose time at Anfield may be up.

    Goalkeepers

    Alisson

    A no-brainer. Sharing the golden glove with Ederson this season, Alisson is set to be in goal for the foreseeable future.

    Verdict: Keep

    Caohmin Kelleher

    A brilliant understudy as he showed in the Carabao Cup final. If he is happy to stay then he should do just that.

    Verdict: Keep

    Adrian

    One year left on his contract and not going to get any game time at Anfield. Time to move him on.

    Verdict: Sell

    Loris Karius

    His Liverpool time has been over for some time, and he will leave on a free this summer.

    Verdict: Sell

    Defenders

    Trent Alexander Arnold 

    A truly generational talent going forwards, and still just 23 years old. Unless he chooses to move on in the future, he is expected to remain at the club.

    Verdict: Keep

    Joe Gomez

    Could still fetch a hefty price should he be sold in the Premier League, but seems to have fallen into backup right back at Liverpool. May be worth looking to move him on.

    Verdict: Sell

    Nat Phillips

    Seems surplus to requirements and his stock is high after a good loan spell. Could be another chance to generate additional funds.

    Verdict: Sell

    Neco Williams

    Another who spent last season on loan, and seems to be well off the calibre needed at Anfield. May be best to part ways.

    Verdict: Sell

    Virgil Van Dijk

    One of several untouchable pieces in the Liverpool puzzle.

    Verdict: Keep

    Joel Matip

    Had a brilliant season and is a great option to partner Van Dijk.

    Verdict: Keep

    Rhys Williams

    Can’t get a look in and is likely to leave this summer.

    Verdict: Sell

    Ibrahima Konate

    Enjoyed a great debut season and is sure to improve. A long term leader of the defence.

    Verdict: Keep

    Kostas Tsimikas

    Has proved a brilliant backup for Andy Robertson and the ‘Greek scouser’ has become a cult hero.

    Verdict: Keep

    Andy Robertson

    A key performer on the left-hand side in the prime of his career. Definitely staying.

    Verdict: Keep

    Midfielders

    Fabinho

    The only recognised defensive midfielder in the squad, and one of the best in the world at what he does.

    Verdict: Keep

    Thiago

    Has come into his own this season and offers skills that no one else in the midfield can.

    Verdict: Keep

    Naby Keita

    Has had a mixed season and is out of contract next summer. May be worth exploring what they could get for the 27-year-old, even if it would be a massive loss.

    Verdict: Sell

    Jordan Henderson

    A leader on and off the pitch even as his role in games may continue to diminish.

    Verdict: Keep

    James Milner

    The ultimate professional, Milner would not be worth selling for the value he offers on the pitch when needed.

    Verdict: Keep

    Curtis Jones

    Needs to continue to work but could be a successor to Milner in an ageing midfield.

    Verdict: Keep

    Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

    Has never really shone consistently in a Liverpool shirt, and is out of contract in 12 months. A move to the likes of West Ham or Southampton could suit all parties.

    Verdict: Sell

    Forwards

    Harvey Elliot

    A leg break robbed him from continuing to impress in a Liverpool shirt this season. Will be handed plenty of chances next season.

    Verdict: Keep

    Sadio Mane

    With one year left on his contract, Mane is perhaps in his best Liverpool form. However, on Liverpool’s self-sufficient model, should they need to raise funds it may be hard to turn down a significant bid.

    Verdict: Sell

    Roberto Firmino

    Like Mane, has just one year left on his contract. The same thinking applies.

    Verdict: Sell

    Mohamed Salah

    Mo Salah has already confirmed he will be at Liverpool next season even as contract negotiations roll on.

    Verdict: Keep

    Luis Diaz

    Has been a revelation since arriving in January. Certain to stay this summer and likely many more to come.

    Verdict: Keep

    Divock Origi

    The Liverpool cult hero is joining AC Milan as a free agent.

    Verdict: Sell

    Takumi Minamino

    A very useful squad player who has proven his worth in the cups. One to keep.

    Verdict: Keep

    Diogo Jota

    Had a very good season overshadowed by Luis Diaz, but still remains a top option for Klopp.
