Still only 19, he has been capped 12 times by Belgian and has bags of promise, but Liverpool cannot rely on Origi to start banging in the goals when he arrives.

” Despite spending over ?100m in the summer, Liverpool look well short of a team capable of challenging for the top four. The sale of Luis Suarez and injuries to Daniel Sturridge have hit the Reds hard, while their defending has gone from bad to worse. Something has to change if Liverpool’s fortunes are to be reversed and we’ve nominated five players who are fighting for their Anfield career, with another five who could be brought in.

Who would you like to see Liverpool buy and sell? Comment below… 10 OUT! Mario Balotelli – Click the arrow to see who Liverpool MUST sign to replace him – Liverpool have gone from nearly winning the title, playing superb attacking football, to also-rans in a matter of months.

But all is not lost, because the January transfer window offers a chance to rectify some of their problems and potentially save their season, while next summer will be another important period. Liverpool simply MUST get their business right to get back in contention with the Champions League contenders. That surely means it’s time to admit the Mario Balotelli gamble has failed.

The Italian’s style and demeanour is totally at odds with the dynamic team ethic that fired Liverpool to title contention and there can be little doubt he was a last minute panic buy who isn’t the answer.

Wilfried Bony – Now click the arrow to see another liability Liverpool should ditch! – The Swansea striker has scored more goals in the Premier League than any other player in 2014, notching 20 for the South Welsh club. A proven Premier League goal scorer entering the peak years of his career, Bony would significantly boost the Reds attacking resources, whether in tandem with Daniel Sturridge or in his absence. ?I hope Liverpool sign him,”” Jamie Carragher is reported as saying of Bony. “”If Liverpool sign Balotelli for ?16m, Bony is worth ?20m or ?25m.

I wish Liverpool got him this summer and I hope they?re looking at him in the future.”” 10 OUT! Simon Mignolet – Click the arrow to see who the Reds should go all out to replace him with! – You know things are bad when your goalkeeper is dropped for a game at Manchester United and replaced by Brad Jones.

Mignolet’s confidence is shot to pieces and it is difficult to see him ever attaining the level of his predecessor Pepe Reina, who was consistently one of the best goalkeepers in Europe for years. The Belgian simply doesn’t command his penalty area, which is a recipe for trouble in the Premier League, while he gives Liverpool’s defenders nightmares when playing with the ball at his feet.

The Reds’ sensational attacking in 2013/14 overshadowed Mignolet’s faults, but since the goals have dried up, they have been there for opponents to punish and make Liverpool suffer. 10 IN! Petr Cech – Click the arrow to see which underwhelming midfielder Liverpool should sell – It’s doubtful Chelsea will let Cech go in January with the Blues still competing on so many fronts, but next summer will be a different matter.

The legendary goalkeeper will surely not tolerate being second choice for another season and, with Liverpool a long way off posing any threat to the London club, he could be allowed to leave for Merseyside, as the departures of Juan Mata and Frank Lampard have shown that Mourinho is not scared to lose players to other English clubs. At 33 next summer, Cech will be two years younger than Edwin van der Sar was when the Dutchman signed for Manchester United, proving that goalkeepers can still be world class well into their 30s.

10 OUT! Joe Allen – Click the arrow to see which defensive midfielder would make a brilliant replacement – Allen is a favourite of Rodgers, who took the midfielder with him from Swansea to Anfield, but does the Northern Irishman have the ruthlessness to admit the Welshman hasn’t cut the mustard? Tidy in possession, Allen may rarely give the ball away, but then he rarely seems to play a pass that could hurt the opposition.

Nor is he a particularly good defensive midfielder, having been rolled for Basel’s crucial goal at Anfield in the Champions League, then embarrassingly nutmegged by Valencia for the first goal in the 3-0 defeat at Old Trafford. Allen is no doubt a hard working, honest pro, but at the highest level a midfielder needs to do more than pass the buck. 10 IN!

Morgan Schneiderlin – Click the arrow to see which expensive flop Liverpool should cut their losses on… – Yes, Liverpool have been pilloried for spending ?50m on Southampton players last summer, only to find themselves well adrift of the south coast club in the Premier League table. But Schneiderlin is the type of player Liverpool are absolutely crying out for: a quality defensive midfielder.

It is surely no coincidence that since Schneiderlin got injured in the home game to Man City, Saints’ results have taken a significant turn for the worse. In fact, his performances in front of the Southampton back four last season probably helped make Dejan Lovren look like a ?20m player. With Lucas injury prone and Emre Can both inexperienced and not a specialist holding player, Schneiderlin would be perfect for Anfield.

Assuming Rodgers could coach a team to defend properly, of course. Speaking of which, click the arrow above to see a defender who has looked absolutely shambolic in a red shirt. 10 OUT!

Dejan Lovren – Now click the arrow to see the solid defender Liverpool should pursue – The Croatian had a very good season with Southampton, earning himself a ?20m move to Liverpool, so what’s gone wrong? As discussed previously, Lovren was playing in a Saints team with personnel and tactics that perhaps masked his defensive deficiencies.

He is a player, believe it or not, who can look brilliant ? commanding in the air, confident on the ball ? but can equally look awful when exposed, and it is certainly a case of the latter at Liverpool. Can he recover? Lovren’s confidence looks shot to pieces and the way Rodgers’ teams open up it looks like he could be in for more choppy waters ahead.

Sometimes the best defenders are the ones you don’t notice so much, because they do the dirty work that doesn’t make a YouTube highlights reel, doesn’t appear on a heat map, but does make life difficult for the opposition attack. Like the man you’ll see on the next page… 10 IN!

Scott Dann – Click the arrow to see which waste of money forward Liverpool must sell – Liverpool were linked with Dann three years ago when he was earning rave reviews at Birmingham City, but he ended up signing for Blackburn Rovers for ?6m. It wasn’t the best move, as Rovers were entering a period of turmoil and ended up being relegated, but Dann proved to be a defensive rock for the club through difficult times, being named captain in 2013.

His displays earned a return to the Premier League, when Tony Pulis signed him for Crystal Palace on deadline day in January 2014, and he has since quietly gone about his business in an impressive manner. “”10 years ago every Premier League club had a Scott Dann,”” said Jamie Carragher, describing the kind of reliable English defender who performs week in, week out. “”Now it’s just him.”” At 27, Dann, a former Liverpool season ticket holder, is entering the peak years of his career and represents the kind of consistency Liverpool have lacked since Carragher himself hung up his boots. 10 OUT!

Fabio Borini – Click the arrow to see who WILL replace the Italian – Brendan Rodgers has managed Borini at three clubs ? in Chelsea’s reserves, on loan at Swansea, then signed him for Liverpool ? but it seems his patience has run out with the Italian forward. Despite the loss of Luis Suarez, Daniel Sturridge’s injuries and the lack of goals from Mario Balotelli and Rickie Lambert, Borini still can’t claim a place on the bench, let alone the first team.

If it wasn’t for his wage demands, Borini would have been sold last summer and it seems Liverpool can’t wait to get shot. 10 IN! Divock Origi – One player who will definitely be arriving on Merseyside is Belgian youngster Origi. Still only 19, he has been capped 12 times by Belgian and has bags of promise, but Liverpool cannot rely on Origi to start banging in the goals when he arrives.

Ideally, he will learn his trade and be used sparingly behind the likes of Sturridge, Bony and another more experienced striker, be it Lambert or another new face. ” ” Questions were raised when Petr Cech was named to start against his past, and potentially future, employers in the Europa League final – but he soon silenced the doubters. Playing the final game of his career, the 37-year-old rolled back the years to produce a string of fine saves for Arsenal and keep Chelsea out.

GETTY 1 Cech was superb during the first-half in Baku – making some important saves Reports suggest the former Blues keeper will return to Stamford Bridge as the club’s new director of football this summer – leading some to suggest he should’ve been left out of the Gunners starting XI in Baku. Before the match, talkSPORT host Adrian Durham said: “He’s about to go back to Chelsea in the summer – that’s where his heart has always been. “He may have moved, he may have signed a contract, he may have worn that shirt and rubbed the badge, but he is still Chelsea through and through.
