Liverpool's exodus of players has started after the club confirmed that they have agreed to a fee to sell their Argentine left-back to Italian club Fiorentina.

A club spokesman informed that Insua has already left the Reds' Switzerland training camp in Switzerland, and is off to Italy to discuss his personal terms.

The decision to sell Insua brings down the curtain to the 21-year-old Argentines' days in Merseyside. The promising left-wingback joined the Anfield outfit in 2007 after impressing them during his loan spell at Liverpool.

The Argentine has been widely regarded as a very prospective talent and although he did not get much playing time during his first two years at Anfield he grabbed a pivotal role in the squad last season, and had a very good season for the Reds'.

Emiliano Adrián Insúa Zapata or Emiliano Insua as he is known has a good pace that allows him to make dangerous run-ins into opponent's boxes down the wings.

He has the ability to read the game very well and has a good positioning sense. The 5'11" Argentines best attribute is his determination to succeed and his industrious play. But he needs to increase his physical strength as well his heading abilities when in air.

The cash-strapped Reds' have long been linked with a mass exodus of players and although new manager Roy Hodgson has affirmed that their star players Gerrard and Torres are not leaving, there is no certainty over the other players' future.

The sell of Insua might signal the start of more such transfers as the club struggles to find new owners as well as their lost glory.
