Philippe Coutinho

The Brazilian attacker’s big-money departure was the biggest highlight of Edward’s negotiation skills. Coutinho established himself as one of the promising attackers and Barcelona came calling for him. The Reds sold him for a massive £142million in January 2018.

Mamadou Sakho

Danny Ings

Ovie Ejaria

Destined for big things after making his debut in 2016, the English winger never found his feet at Anfield and spent several seasons on loan at Sunderland, Rangers, and Reading before joining the latter on a permanent deal for a fee in the region of £3million in 2020.
