Liverpool boss plots January left-back move

Published Add your comment

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has said that he will attempt to bring in new reinforcements to ease the club's defensive problems.

This comes after left-back Jose Enrique was ruled out until February following surgery on a knee problem, which has restricted the Spaniard to making just six appearances for the club all season.

With only Aly Cissokho on a season-long loan from Valencia and promising youngster Jon Flanagan available to fill Enrique's position, the former Swansea manager is keen to bring in another defender as he eyes a top four finish.

"It is certainly something that if Jose is going to be out for a long time we would have to look at I am sure," he told reporters. 

"We think Jose will be a few months. It is not a long term one but will be the new year for sure.

"It is not ideal; you would prefer two in there to really be challenging. Jose is clearly one of the best left-backs in the league and to have him out is a blow."

It has already been understood that Rodgers is lining up a move to prise Chico Flores away from his old club Swansea, as well as also lining up a bid for Hamburg's Dennis Aogo who is available for just £5million if the deal falls through.
