Belgian striker Christian Benteke has already been frozen out at Anfield.
However manager Jurgen Klopp is playing hard ball over the transfer fee from interested parties.
West Brom, Crystal Palace and Everton are said to be in the running. Palace has officially bid but their latest offer of £30m, is believed to be £23m up front plus £7m in add-ons – and doesn’t impress Liverpool.
The 25-year-old signed for the Reds for £32.5m in July 2015, a Brendan Rodgers transfer. LFC is believed to want a straight fee of 30 million.
He scored 10 goals even though he was mostly used as a substitute.
