Liverpool look to sell quartet to free up funds for summer of spending

Liverpool are looking to sell quartet Jermaine Pennant, Peter Crouch, Steve Finnan and John Arne Riise as Reds boss Rafa Benitez looks to free up funds for the summer. (Daily Mail)

All four players have been linked with moves away from Anfield in recent months as Liverpool get ready for a busy summer in the transfer window.

Crouch, 27, has been linked with a whole host of clubs including Newcastle, Portsmouth and Aston Villa in recent weeks after Benitez confirmed the club would listen to offers.

I feel this is a good move for Liverpool. They need to clean out the large majority of their squad before they can't start fully rebuilding for a title bid next season.
