James Milner is the only Liverpool player whose deal expires in 2022 that could be extended, with Adrián and Loris Karius likely to be let go, but with 12 months remaining on the contracts of Salah, Mané, Firmino, Oxlade-Chamberlain and Keïta by the time Ward takes over from Edwards, that is a big dilemma to walk into — albeit as assistant sporting director, Ward will know exactly how the situation is unfolding.

When Michael Edwards announced his upcoming departure and it was determined that Julian Ward would be swiftly promoted to take over the role next summer, the immediate thought was whether or not Liverpool's transfer policy would be affected.

The answer to that, Liverpool will hope, is that little will change: the system is in place and only Edwards is leaving, not the rest of the various people who make up the recruitment department.

Just as important as the moves that Liverpool make in the transfer market in the summer will be what they do with various contracts — ideally before then, but certainly during it.

While the immediate thought might be who he could target in the transfer market next summer — and that, no doubt, will be important — even more pressing is tying down, or at least sorting out the future of, some of the stars that Liverpool already have on the books.

As it stands, each of them will have 12 months remaining on their deals come the end of this season, though there is plenty of time for that to change before then.

By the time next season kicks off, a clearer idea of what the future holds for each will surely be known, and there are only six months remaining in this campaign.
