Three Liverpool players are expected to leave the club after being omitted from the club’s squad for the tour of Hong Kong.

A 25-man squad departed for the Far East on Sunday, with the injured Sadio Mane among those left in Merseyside.

Three other notable players were left off the squad, including Lazio-bound Lucas Leiva. The midfielder is set to join the Serie A club for £5million in the coming days.

Mamadou Sakho and Lazar Markovic were also not included in the squad, with both expected to leave this summer.

The pair left for Crystal Palace and Hull respectively on loans in the winter, and Liverpool are thought to be looking for permanent buyers.

They value Sakho at around £30m, while they want a fee closer to £20m for winger Markovic.

Jordan Henderson was included in the squad after returning from injury, while there were also places for Ben Woodburn, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joe Gomez, Marko Grujic, Jon Flanagan, Ryan Kent and Danny Ward.

The Reds will compete in the Premier League Asia Trophy on their six-day tour, facing Crystal Palace then either West Brom or Leicester.
