With reigning European champions Liverpool looking to invest in new talent ahead of next season, no fewer than five players currently out on loan could be sold in order to help finance their planned transfer dealings.
Click through the gallery above to see the five loaned out players Liverpool could cash in on next season.
At the top of the list of potential departees is Serbia international Marko Grujic. The 23-year-old was Jurgen Klopp's first signing as Liverpool manager, but is currently enjoying the second part of a two-season loan at Bundesliga side Hertha Berlin, where he has been one of the club's standout players.
However, despite his impressive form in Germany, Grujic appears to not have earned a spot in the Reds' already crammed midfield for next season, and it is believed the English giants will look to offload the Serbian, who is valued at €18 million (R343 million), upon his return.
Another player who has been impressing on loan is Wales international Harry Wilson, who has been one of the AFC Bournemouth's star players in the Premier League this season. The 23-year-old has scored six goals in 23 appearances for the Cherries in their bid to stave off relegation.
Wilson, who previously enjoyed successful loan spells in the Championship with Hull City and Derby County, looks unlikely to return to Liverpool and has been touted to leave for a figure that matches his €22 million (R420 million) valuation.
German goalkeeper Loris Karius, whose infamous mistakes in the 2017/18 UEFA Champions League final put paid to any hope Liverpool had of winning the continental title that season, is nearing the end of his two-year loan spell at Besiktas and a return to Anfield is highly unlikely.
A permanent stay in Turkey is an option, but the former Mainz star could be available for as little as €5 million (R95 million) for other suitors who are looking to invest in their goalkeeping departments.
Former England youth internationals Sheyi Ojo and Ovie Ejaria's futures also lies elsewhere, with the latter already confirmed to be joining Reading permanently at the end of the current campaign.
Ojo, who is currently on loan at Steven Gerrard's Rangers, is valued at a lowly €2 million (R38 million), but his sale could help the club rake in more than €50 million (R954 million) in sales if he and the other loanees are all sold.
