Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is looking to add to his transfer budget by selling £100m worth of players, a report claims.

Having missed out by the narrowest of margins in a thrilling title race, Klopp still has a chance to win his first trophy with the Reds in the Champions League final.

The German is nonetheless expected to try and strengthen his squad in the summer window, with cover needed for a variety of positions.

As a result, a report from the Liverpool Echo claims that Klopp is willing to offload a number of fringe players this summer in order to help boost the budget.

Goalkeeper Simon Mignolet, full-back Nathaniel Clyne and midfielder Rafael Camacho are named in the report as likely to be offloaded by Liverpool, with no chance of regular first-team action in the near future.

Mignolet has played second fiddle to Alisson all season and looks set to leave, with his agent apparently informing clubs that he’s available for a fee of around £4.5million, with a move to Turkey touted.

Clyne spent time on loan at Bournemouth last season, while Camacho continues to be linked with a shock move to Real Madrid.

Marko Grujic, Harry Wilson and Ryan Kent could all also depart Merseyside this summer, but it is possible they could only be loan deals.

Grujic has been permanently linked with a move to Hertha Berlin and Atletico Madrid, while Wilson and Kent have both been linked with Leeds in recent weeks.

It is believed that Anfield chiefs have set a target of £100million that they wish to obtain through player sales this summer.
