Liverpool left-back search turns to highly rated La Liga prospect – reports

Published Add your comment

Highly rated La Liga left-back Jose Angel is a summer transfer target for Liverpool according to Sky Sports' Spanish correspondent, Guillem Balague.

As reported on his website,, Angel could move to Anfield when the transfer window reopens in June after being tracked in recent months.

Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish has made it clear the Reds need to add a left-sided defender in the summer, after deeming Paul Konchesky surplus to requirements.

Dalglish has instead chosen to deploy an out of position Glen Johnson at left-back for much of the season, and has more recently tasked Liverpool's academy graduate John Flanagan with filling Anfield's problem position.


Director of Footballl Damien Comolli has been on the look-out for a defensive addition to improve the squad at Anfield, causing Liverpool to be linked with a host of names over the past few months.

Jose Enrique, Fabio Coentrao, Gael Clichy, and even former Reds star John Arne Riise have all been cited as potential targets, but it is now understood that with an emphasis once again placed on youth development, the Spanish U-21 international has been moved to the top of Liverpool's list of targets.

Angel hinted at a January move to Malaga, when the La Liga rivals offered to pay €3million to bring him to La Rosaleda.

However, after a deal failed to materialise, Angel has continued to deliver committed performances for Sporting, who sit comfortably in mid-table in Spain's top-flight division.

But if Liverpool were to step up their interest in Angel, his head may well be turned once again by a club that boasts such European pedigree.
