The Echo have reported that Liverpool could receive a whopping £32 million for the sales of Ryan Kent, Rafael Camacho and Taiwo Awoniyi this summer.

The Liverpool-based publication claims that Kent [£12m], Camacho [£10m] and Awoniyi [£10m] could result in the Reds picking up a tidy sum.

And if it materialises, it'll have to be considered a masterstroke by Sporting Director Michael Edwards.

That is because it's a lot of money to get for three lads who are Liverpool players on paper only.


Between them, Kent, Camacho and Awoniyi - who can't get a work permit - have made only three senior appearances for Jurgen Klopp's side.

And to milk £32 million - £4 million less than what the Anfield side paid for Mo Salah - could be an incredible bit of business by Edwards.

They are all good players, but they would have to be exceptional players to have any future under Klopp on Merseyside.

And getting so much money from three lads who probably don't have futures at Liverpool, it's another credit to Edwards if it comes off.
