Liverpool eye German ace

Published Add your comment

Marcell Jansen is the latest left-back to be linked with a move to Liverpool as new manager Roy Hodgson continues the search for Emiliano Insua’s replacement.

The Hamburg ace did not play as much as he would have liked during the World Cup but Hidgson has been tipped off as to his availability.

One plus side to Jansen is that he is versatile and could also provide back=up for holding midfielder Javier Mascherano should he decide to stay.

Having strengthened his attacking options by signing Joe Cole earlier this week, Hodgson has made shoring up the defence his priority.

Danny Wilson moved to Anfield yesterday from Rangers and now Hodgson has admitted the next arrival will be a left sided defender.

Hodgson said: “We need to find a replacement for Emiliano [Insua] and Fabio [Aurelio]. That is one job we will have to do.”

Cue all kinds of rumours for left-backs from around the world, including Wayne Bridge and Reto Ziegler.
