Leto leads Anfield exodus

Sebastian Leto is set for Anfield departure after reports in the Greek media has mentioned Liverpool have accepted a bid from Panathinaikos.

According to the reports, the Greek club has bid in the region of £3million for the Argentinian midfielder.

Leto has spent last season on loan at Olympiakos, after problems securing a work permit to play in Britain and made 22 appearances for them.

Leto, on loan at Olympiakos Leto was signed from Lanus for £2million in summer 2007, he made a couple of pre-season appearances and played in the Champions League qualifier against Toulouse but problems with his passport saw him only play in the reserves for the whole of his first season in England. He since gained an Italian passport but was rejected a work permit.

Leto won’t be the last of Anfield’s departure this summer. Even though, Rafa has mentioned, “We can sign one more player if necessary, but that’s without any players leaving”, when asked about the signing of Glen Johnson earlier.

Andriy Voronin, Alvaro Arbeloa and Andrea Dossena, all are available and expected to leave for the right fees. Hertha Berlin make an U-turn on Voronin, who has spent last season on loan and scoring 11 goals in the Bundesliga. The German club are keen to sign Voronin on a permanent basis.

With Real Madrid waiting on the wing to access the Alonso’s situation at Anfield. They will make a bid for Arbeloa and Liverpool are prepare to listen to their offer. We have learned that Rafa will not sell Arbeloa on a cheap, with the right-back who still have one-year contract left at Anfield. The Reds demands £6million for the Spanish international fullback.

The press has reported that Juventus have made an approach to Liverpool on the availability of Andrea Dossena. The Italian left-back, who failed to hold down a regular place at Liverpool, would like consider his playing future sooner rather than later as the World Cup 2010 just around the corner.

Another player who is on the departure list are Charles Itandje. Malaga are reported to have made contact with Liverpool in regards to French keeper.

With the Anfield outfit also boasting Diego Cavalieri among their goalkeeping options, they are willing to discuss a possible deal for Itandje.

By clearing all the mentioned deadwoods, Rafa can increased his transfer funds by £25million. Hopefully with the amount recouped, Rafa will be able to sign a star player.
