Liverpool have been quiet this summer in their quest for new faces at the club, with Ibrahima Konate the only player brought in by boss Jurgen Klopp. The centre-back joined the Reds from RB Leipzig for £36million in May.
But there has been significant movement out of Anfield, with five players departing the club this summer.
Gini Wijnaldum decided to walk away at the end of his contract to join Champions League favourites Paris Saint-Germain, while Harry Wilson was sold to Fulham for £12.6m.
Xherdan Shaqiri, Marko Grujic and Taiwo Awoniyi were also offloaded to land Liverpool another £26.5m for their transfer kitty.
And now the Reds could be willing to allow four more players to head for the exit before next Tuesday’s transfer deadline.
According to ESPN, Divock Origi, Takumi Minamino, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Naby Keita could all be available for the right offer.

Origi has been a bit-part player for Liverpool since arriving from Wolfsburg in 2018 and has had to settle for a place on the bench at best throughout most of his Anfield career.
The 26-year-old Belgium international will go down in Liverpool folklore, however, as he notched two goals in the club’s stunning 4-0 Champions League semi-final victory over Barcelona in 2019. He also scored in the final against Tottenham.
Minamino endured a tough first 12 months at Anfield after arriving from RB Salzburg in January 2020 and was shipped off to Southampton on loan for the second half of last season.
The 26-year-old Japan international impressed at St Mary’s and could well command interest between now and the deadline.

Oxlade-Chamberlain was linked with a move to West Ham earlier this summer, while former club Southampton were apparently keen to take the midfielder on loan.
The England international had been touted for big things following his arrival at Anfield four years ago but has been plagued by injury problems throughout his time on Merseyside.
He missed a year of action after suffering cruciate ligament damage in his side’s Champions League semi-final first leg victory against Roma in April 2018.
And the 28-year-old was ruled out for the first few months of the last campaign with another knee injury.
Oxlade-Chamberlain will be looking to resurrect his career and a move away may help him do just that.
Keita has been another bit-part player for Liverpool after the club shelled out an enormous £54m to land him in 2018.
The 26-year-old Guinea international has failed to establish himself in Klopp’s side, although he has started the opening two games of this season.
Klopp has been clear this summer on the club’s policy of raising transfer funds through the sale of players.
And if they could offload one or two squad players before Tuesday, it will bolster the Anfield coffers for future transfer windows.
