Liverpool target two wingers to replace departing star

Liverpool are looking at two players to replace Raheem Sterling, who has been heavily linked with an exit to Manchester City in recent weeks, according to the Express.

City made a second bid of £40million to sign Sterling on Wednesday, and although the offer is expected to be rejected once again by the Reds, the Sky Blues will continue pushing for a transfer.

Sterling became a subject of interest for the Citizens following the England international’s contract standoff with Liverpool, in which he snubbed a salary of £100,000-a-week earlier this year.

And with Sterling expected to leave, Kop manager Brendan Rodgers has therefore identified two players he will be targeting to replace the 20-year-old in the upcoming summer window.

The first option is Monaco ace Lucas Ocampos, who had a brilliant campaign while on loan at Marseille last season.

And the Reds will also continue their chase for Dnipro’s Yevhen Konoplyanka, who will be leaving the club on a free transfer after scoring eight goals and supplying seven assists in 42 games.
