The former Feyenoord boss shares several key traits with the departing, iconic Jurgen Klopp, most obviously his proclivity for a high press and his easy-going charisma.

But Slot is his own man, and will want to shape the Liverpool squad in his own image. On this page, we'll keep you up to date on Liverpool's confirmed ins and outs in summer 2024.

Liverpool new signings: Summer 2024 arrivals

Confirmed Liverpool signings in summer 2024

Liverpool are yet to make a senior addition to their squad, though midfield prodigy Bobby Clark has been formally promoted from the under-21s.

The Reds are expected to be active in the market this summer, however. For the latest news on their movements, check out our Liverpool transfer targets page.

Confirmed Liverpool departures in summer 2024

Thiago (retired)

After four seasons on Merseyside, Thiago will hang up his boots this summer as his contract expires.

The 33-year-old, an incredibly technical operator in midfield who helped Liverpool play in a new way early in his career, has struggled with injuries.

Signed from Bayern Munich in 2020 for £18m, the Spaniard has missed 675 days through injury over his four years at Liverpool. He played just six minutes in 2023/24.

When fit, however, Thiago was superb, as exemplified by his stunning volley against FC Porto in the 2021/22 Champions League.

Thiago will take up a coaching role in Hansi Flick's new regime at Barcelona, representing a full circle moment for the former La Masia youth.

Calvin Ramsay (loan, Wigan Athletic)

Liverpool had hoped to have signed a right-sided Andy Robertson when they paid £4,500,000 to bring Calvin Ramsay from Aberdeen in 2022.

The then-18-year-old was considered a prodigious talent in the Scottish Premier League, but things have not quite worked out for the young man at Anfield.

Ramsay has made just two senior appearances for the Reds in his debut season, and also struggled to make an impact on loan at Preston North End and Bolton Wanderers.

He will try to get his career back on track at Wigan Athletic in 2024/25.

Joël Matip (free agent)

One of the longest-serving players in Liverpool's squad, Joël Matip will depart Anfield this summer after eight seasons of service, when his contract expires.

The Cameroonian was a shrewd free signing from Schalke in 2016, and, when fit, has been a great partner for Virgil van Dijk.

Tall, intelligent and skilful, Matip was excellent at anticipating danger and made 199 appearances for the Reds over his eight years.

Despite his injury issues, Matip will be missed at Anfield, and his quality will need replacing.

Adrián (free, Real Betis)

For a man who is nominally Liverpool's third-choice goalkeeper, Adrián has made a surprising number of appearances for the Reds.

Since joining on a free from West Ham in 2019, the 37-year-old Spaniard has made 26 appearances for Liverpool, winning the Premier League, FA Cup and two League Cups in his time.

The experienced goalkeeper turned down the offer of a contract extension from Liverpool to seek pastures new.

Adrián has returned to Spain and returned to Real Betis, the club he made his name with before a switch to the Premier League with West Ham.
