Liverpool has announced that James Milner, Roberto Firmino, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, and Naby Keita will be leaving the club when their contracts expire at the end of the season.

Milner and Firmino, who arrived in June 2015, were instrumental in Liverpool’s victory in the 2019 Champions League final against Tottenham.

Oxlade-Chamberlain joined in June 2017, followed by Keita the following summer, and all four contributed to the Reds’ Premier League title triumph in the 2019-20 campaign.

A statement from Liverpool confirmed the departures, stating that special acknowledgements will be made to the quartet at Anfield, with further tributes planned at the end of the season.

Milner, 37, has been linked with moves to Brighton and his hometown club Leeds after spending eight years with Liverpool. With 617 Premier League appearances to his name, he is ranked third on the all-time list, behind Gareth Barry and Ryan Giggs. Milner joined Liverpool from Manchester City in 2015, having won multiple titles during his time at the Etihad Stadium.

Firmino, who joined from Hoffenheim, has scored 109 goals in all competitions for Liverpool, including 11 in the current season
