Liverpool are reportedly set for a major overhaul during the summer transfer window as around 10 players could leave the club.

According to the Daily Mail, Brendan Rodgers faces a battle in holding on to a few key players as they could leave due to Liverpool's failed season, which sees them go without a trophy yet again. Moreover, the Reds could also miss out on next season's Champions League after falling behind in the race for a place in the top four.

Steven Gerrard is the first to depart as he has already agreed a deal to join MLS club LA Galaxy next season, while defenders Glen Johnson and Kolo Toure are both out of contract at the end of the current campaign.

The former is set to leave on a free transfer and the latter is still deciding whether to sign an extension offered by the club.

Among the players who have been key to Liverpool's revival this season, Raheem Sterling is embroiled in a contract stand-off with the club and it looks inevitable that the Reds will have to fend off bids from top European clubs during the summer transfer window.

Martin Skrtel is also entering the final year of his contract with no offer of a new contract in the pipeline. The defender, who has been vital for the Merseyside club this season, could depart with Bundesliga highflyers Wolfsburg reportedly interested in taking the Slovakian to Germany.

Another defender Javier Manquillo is set to return to Spain, after failing to impress in the first of a two-season loan spell from Atletico Madrid.

Among the forwards, Rodgers will have to make a complete overhaul, after summer signings Mario Balotelli and Rickie Lambert failed disastrously to fill in the large boots left behind by Luis Suarez's departure to Barcelona.

The Italian has scored just one goal in the Premier League since his arrival from Italy last summer, but the Reds boss will have a task on hand to convince clubs to sign a striker, who earns £90,000-a-week.

Fabio Borini will also be allowed to leave as the Italian striker failed to nail down a place in the Liverpool team after rejecting a loan move to Sunderland at the start of the season.

And finally, Brad Jones will be deemed surplus to requirements as the report claims that Rodgers will move for a new goalkeeper to challenge or replace the sometimes errant Simon Mignolet.
