Danny Murphy says Fabinho and three other Liverpool players must leave the club this summer

Former Liverpool midfielder Danny Murphy has named four Reds players that he believes must leave the club this summer.

The Reds are currently in eighth place in the Premier League table, now 10 points off the Champions League qualification spots.

Jurgen Klopp's side do have 10 games left to play, but now have little room for error with every point vital in their pursuit of reaching Europe's top club competition next season.

They take on league leaders Arsenal at Anfield on Sunday, in what can surely be seen as a game that the Reds need to win.

But that will be a difficult task, compounded by the fact that Klopp's side have won just four of their 12 games in 2023.

Speaking after their 0-0 draw against Chelsea on Tuesday, Murphy named the players he thinks need to move on in order to allow the German boss to rebuild his squad.

Murphy explained (quotes via The Anfield Talk): "Fabinho's got to go. [James] Milner's got to go. [Naby] Keita's going. [Alex] Oxlade-Chamberlain is going. That's four midfielders there.

"Liverpool need major surgery. They don't just need a huge chunk of money pumped in, they need to sell a lot of players who aren't good enough and free up the wages."

Murphy then stated the players he believes must not be sold by Klopp, and can play a part for Liverpool going forward.

"[Jordan] Henderson's got to stay. [Andrew] Robertson's got to stay, 110%. [Kostas] Tsimikas isn't good enough as an understudy."

Keita and Oxlade-Chamberlain are both out of contract at the end of the season, with neither player having yet been offered an extension.

Milner, meanwhile, will also see his contract end in June, although Football Insider claimed last month, via sources, that Klopp was keen to offer the 37-year-old midfielder a new deal.

Fabinho has been one of Liverpool's key players since joining the club from Monaco in 2018, but has struggled to find form this season. Either way, it would be a surprise to see him depart Anfield at this point.
