Kenny Dalglish and Liverpool Football Club have been amongst the big spenders in this transfer window, continuing on from the January window which saw Luis Suarez and Andy Carroll signed up.
So far, Anfield has seen the arrival of Jordan Henderson, Charlie Adam, Stewart Downing and Doni with the promise of more new faces to come.
But with a squad bloated in places, Dalglish knows that before more recruits are brought in, the current squad must be trimmed.
It is in particular the midfield, that now has far too many players competing for places. Indeed competition brings out the best in players when they know there is a teammate waiting in the wings, should the player currently in the first team begin to let performances slip. However, presently Dalglish's squad is too deep.
As preseason training now steps into a far more important critical phase, players, squads and coaches will want to finalise their playing staff sooner rather than later.
Needless to say, there will be quite a few players who will be exiting Liverpool Football Club in the not so distant future.
