Even if the sales don't materialise for Liverpool, the smart terms have already generated good income.

When Michael Edwards was Liverpool's sporting director, the club had a reputation for being among the best at negotiating with players.

This has resulted in good income for players like Rhian Brewster, Dom Solanke, Brad Smith, Harry Wilson and many more.

At the same time, the club has been keen to include favourable resale terms in the sales agreements, and this is paying off for the club this summer.

brings in several million

Last summer, it became known that former Liverpool academy goalkeeper Kamil Grabara would leave Copenhagen for German side Wolfsburg in the summer of 2024. On July 1, the deal was confirmed, bringing the money to Liverpool.

The Reds negotiated the right to receive 20 per cent of any resale when they sold the Pole, who Wolfsburg have now paid £11.4m for. That means more than £2m goes to Liverpool.

In addition to Grabara, another former Liverpool player, who many have already forgotten, brought money to the club's coffers.

Luis Alberto was sold earlier this summer from Lazio to Al Duhail for around £10m, and with a resell clause of around twenty per cent, that gives around £2m to the red-clad.

Liverpool have already booked over £4m in revenue without selling any first-team players yet.

When do sales come?

For a long time it was quiet about selling players – with the exception of Anderson Arroyo to Burgos which probably didn't bring much profit to the reds – but now it seems things are starting to move around the players.

Liverpool are said to have rejected offers for Nathaniel Phillips and Sepp van den Berg, while there is also strong interest in Tyler Morton.

Meanwhile, Caoimhin Kelleher, Kostas Tsimikas and Luis Diaz should also be available at the right price.

When sporting director Richard Hughes met the press with Slot on Friday 5 July, he expected the transfer market to pick up steam later this summer.

– It is normal when there are big tournaments in the summer that the focus is there. After it happened a lot in June, it will calm down a bit in July, I see.

“So when August comes around and the managers have worked more with the players, there will be a greater rush to get things right in August. I think July will be quiet, and then there will be more action in August,” Hughes said of the transfer window in general.
