Five players who could leave Liverpool this summer

Ahead of the transfer window opening, we've marked out five players who could be set for an Anfield exit featuring Luis Suarez, Daniel Agger and Pepe Reina.

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has wasted no time in trying to land his transfer targets in the close season.

The Reds have already added Rickie Lambert to their ranks this summer, while Bayer Leverkusen's Emre Can looks set to be confirmed in a £9.75 million move in the coming days.

Rodgers is also said to be keen on a £17.9 million move for Sevilla left-back Alberto Moreno, and could yet return for Dnipro's Yevhen Konoplyanka after missing out on the Ukraine winger in January.

However, there are some who are set to be shifted out as the Reds begin to plan for life in the Champions League next season, and ahead of the exits, we've listed five who could be on the move this summer with a likelihood rating out of five.

Pepe Reina

The Spain international spent last season on loan at Napoli after Rodgers brought Simon Mignolet to the club last summer. Reina is almost certain to be shipped out with the Reds reportedly looking for around £6 million for the former Villarreal shot-stopper.

Likelihood rating: 5.

Fabio Borini

Another player who was out on loan last season, the Italian forward was a big success during his time with Sunderland, with his goals going a long way to securing the Black Cats' safety.

Sunderland are reportedly weighing up a £10 million bid for the forward, and the Reds could be tempted into doing business if a firm offer arrives.

Rating: 4.

Iago Aspas

In short, Aspas' time at Anfield has been a failure. The striker signed from Celta Vigo for around £8 million last summer, but only scored one goal - in the FA Cup against Oldham Athletic.

The Reds will sell the Spaniard on if they can recoup what they paid the La Liga side last summer, but it remains to be seen if any potential suitors will make an offer.

Rating: 3.

Daniel Agger

Agger has been linked with a move away from Anfield in recent weeks after he gave an interview last month explaining his frustration at a lack of first-team opportunities.

Speaking to media in his native Denmark he said: "I don’t know [why I don't play]. That’s up to the manager. I can’t put myself on the team sheet.

"It definitely wasn’t great to be left out, but I don’t make the decisions. I think it is because the manager doesn’t think that I’m good enough."

However, Agger captained the Reds for the first time against Chelsea in December and started the victory against Newcastle at Anfield on the final day of the campaign - a game where the Reds still had a chance of winning the title.

Rating: 2.

Luis Suarez

It just wouldn't be a transfer window without Real Madrid's interest in Luis Suarez flaring up. The La Liga giants have been continually linked with a big-money move this summer, with stories springing up on a daily basis.

However, Suarez, who has constantly reiterated his happiness with life on Merseyside, only signed a new contract back in December, and Rodgers does not want to lose his star player.

Rating: 1.
