Liverpool are reportedly preparing a summer clear-out at Anfield before the transfer window shuts on 1 September.

According to the Liverpool Echo, the Reds centre-back Daniel Agger, wingers Oussama Assaidi and Jordon Ibe, along with defender Sebastian Coates and Jack Robinson will head for the exit.

The Merseyside club have strengthened their squad by adding over eight high-profile names to the squad.

The list includes England international duo Adam Lallana and Rickie Lambert, while Premier League defender Dejan Lovren arrived from Southampton.

The signing of the Croatian international has seen Agger and Coates drop further down the pecking order.

Apart from Lovren, Brendan Rodgers can call upon Martin Skrtel, Mamadou Sakho and Kolo Toure as the other options in the heart of Liverpool's back four.

The former Swansea manager was coy when questioned about the Uruguayan international's future at Anfield, claiming that it would be hard for Coates to get regular playing time.

Agger has also hinted that he could leave his current employers in the ongoing transfer window.

Assaidi spent the last season on loan at Stoke City. The Moroccan winger was set to join Mark Hughes' side as they made a £6m bid for him.

However, the winger's high wage demands saw the deal fall through, but Rodgers is still hoping to offload him.

Ibe was part of the Anfield club's pre-season tour in the US and had caught the eye with his performance.

The Northern Irishman wants to allow the teenager to leave the Reds on-loan in order to develop further by getting more playing time under his belt away from Liverpool.

The signing of Alberto Moreno from Sevilla has seen Jon Flanagan and Glen Johnson (both of them can play on either side) vying for a place in the starting lineup.

The Spaniard is likely to be the first team regular and it is unlikely Robinson would feature regularly this season.

Rodgers is open to letting Coates and Robinson leave Liverpool on-loan or on a permanent transfer.

Should the Reds boss manage to allow these players to leave the club before the transfer window shuts, he would then be able to assess his squad as Liverpool look to compete on all four fronts.
