Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp plans to clearout his midfield this summer.
Klopp's ageing midfield is one of his main priorities once the transfer window re-opens.
Room will have to be made in Klopp's squad for any new arrivals - and a fresh report states a decision has already been made regarding departures.
The Athletic reports he will allow former England midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, 29, and Guinea's Naby Keita, 28, both to leave as free agents when their contracts expire.
And he will not try to sign Brazilian Arthur Melo, 26, on a permanent deal once his season-long loan ends.
