£35 million Liverpool QUARTET set for exit !

Liverpool quartet John Arne Riise, Peter Crouch, Xabi Alonso and Danny Guthrie could finally complete their moves away from Anfield in the next week or so with moves to Roma, Portsmouth, Juventus and Newcastle respectively looking on the cards.

Riise joined the Merseysiders in 2001 and has made nearly 250 appearances since his arrival bagging 21 goals in the process. The Norwegian has gradually drifted away from the Reds starting line up over the last few seasons and it is definitely time for the 27 year old to move on. His £5 million move to AS Roma looks set to be done and dusted later this week.

Peter Crouch's future at Anfield is currently hanging in the balance. Obviously out of favor last season especially with Rafa's one striker policy, Crouch is looking for regular first team football and although I'd say the majority of Reds fans would like to see him extend his time at the club, his international career will also start suffering because of the amount of time he spends in the Anfield dugout.

Xabi Alonso is the third player whose Liverpool career is in doubt, talks with Juventus are currently on going but a £17 million move could be completed after the conclusion of Spain's Euro 2008 campaign. And finally last seasons loanee Danny Guthrie could eventually make a permanent move away from Liverpool with Newcastle thought to be eying up the 21 year old in what could be a £1 million move.
