According to The Mirror, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has told six players that they would be better off leaving the club this summer, including striker Christian Benteke.

Klopp has added a number of new faces to his squad this summer, with goalkeeper Loris Karius, defender Joel Matip and winger Sadio Mane arriving so far, whilst January addition Marko Grujic will now begin his career having stayed on loan with Red Star Belgrade.

With new faces brought - and potentially more to come - some players will be heading out of Anfield, and whilst Kolo Toure, Jose Enrique, Sergi Canos, Jordan Rossiter and Martin Skrtel have all gone already, more appear to be following them in leaving Merseyside.

The Mirror report that manager Klopp is keen to let fringe players leave the club, and has allegedly told six players they would be better off leaving the club than staying at Anfield and not playing next season.

It's claimed that goalkeeper Adam Bogdan, defender Tiago Ilori, midfielder Lucas Leiva, winger Lazar Markovic as well as striker Christian Benteke and Mario Balotelli have been told by Klopp that their days are numbered at Anfield.

Bogdan has endured a nightmare spell since signing from Bolton last summer, and with Karius signed to compete with Simon Mignolet, it's clear that the Hungarian is not wanted by Klopp.

Defender Ilori has only made three appearances since signing from Sporting Lisbon in 2013, and after loan spells with Granada, Bordeaux and Aston Villa, he now looks set to leave permanently.

Midfielder Lucas has made over 300 appearances for Liverpool since signing from Gremio in 2007, but now looks set to depart the club for first-team football, whilst striker Benteke could bring his time at Liverpool to an end just one year since signing from Aston Villa.

2014 summer signings Markovic and Balotelli made little impact under Brendan Rodgers and both spent last season out on loan at Fenerbahce and AC Milan respectively, with full-time exits now on the cards.

Do you think Liverpool should keep any of these six players?
