24 former Liverpool players who changed clubs this summer

The summer transfer window was an eventful one for Liverpool, with new additions and notable departures, but there were also plenty of moves for those who once called Anfield home.

The transfer window is always an interesting time to keep track of player movement across Europe and see what former Liverpool players are up to.

And quite a few found a new home in the summer, including Divock Origi and Gini Wijnaldum. Two Reds who only left the club in 2022 and 2021 respectively.

Origi struggled to find form at AC Milan and has now landed himself back in the Premier League on loan with Nottingham Forest – it’s going to be weird seeing him donning the No. 27 for someone else!

As for Wijnaldum, the 32-year-old never quite settled at PSG and after a loan spell with Roma he has joined the long line of players who opted to move to Saudi Arabia.

He joined Steven Gerrard’s Al-Ettifaq and reunited with Jordan Henderson.

But who else has moved on this summer? Let’s take a look.

Philippe Coutinho continues to struggle to settle and find form, now swapping Aston Villa for Qatari side Al-Duhail, his fourth different club since leaving Anfield in 2018.

Cult hero Ragnar Klavan dusted off his football boots to sign up for his 22nd year of senior football, he is combining his president duties with playing for Tallinna Kalev.

Admirable from the 37-year-old!

Former Liverpool forward Andy Carroll is still knocking about, the 34-year-old joined Ligue 2 club Amiens after triggering a release clause at Reading – it is his third move in less than three years.

Arthur, meanwhile, has made another temporary move away from Juventus having joined Fiorentina. At the time of writing, he has already played nearly 30 times the amount of minutes he did at Liverpool (13).

Ryan Kent, who played only once for Liverpool, made the surprise switch from Rangers to Fenerbahce in the summer and has been in and out of their team so far this season.

There was also another move for Conor Coady, one year after his “proud” loan switch to Everton – he has joined Leicester from Wolves for an initial £7.5 million fee.

An injury is likely to keep him out of contention for their League Cup trip to Anfield this month.

Ki-Jana Hoever has returned to Stoke on loan after leaving a lasting impression during his stint in the second-half of last season.

Now 21, the defender will be aiming to establish himself having yet to show parent club Wolves that he can be a reliable option in their first team.

Liverpool have also banked a future windfall of £2.3 million after Wolfsburg confirmed they had signed former academy goalkeeper Kamil Grabara for 2024.

It is the second sell-on clause triggered this summer after Allan Rodrigues’ move from Atletico Mineiro to Flamengo.

It has been quite the summer of change for a number of former Liverpool youth and senior players, many of whom will be eager to put down roots and establish themselves in their next steps.

  • Lawrence Vigouroux – Burnley
  • Conor Masterson – Gillingham
  • David Amoo – Ebbsfleet United
  • Tom Brewitt – Swindon
  • Luis Longstaff – Inverness Caledonian Thistle

  • Ben Winterbottom – Welling United (loan)
  • Liam Millar – Preston (loan)
