Liverpool plot £6m summer offer for Barcelona star Adriano

Liverpool appear to have identified Barcelona star Adriano Correia as an ideal solution to the issues the club have endured at left-back.

According to reports in Spain cited by The Metro, Adriano is being lined up for a switch to Merseyside at the end of the season with Reds boss Brendan Rodgers willing to offer £6 million for his services.

That left-back spot has proved somewhat problematic for Liverpool this season, with usually-reliable Spaniard Jose Enrique having been ruled out of action since a win over Fulham at Anfield in early November after sustaining a serious and lingering knee injury.

His replacement - Valencia loanee Aly Cissokho - has often filled the void left by Enrique, yet he has hardly done his chances of securing a permanent deal any good with a serious of highly-unconvincing displays in the Premier League.

Adriano, meanwhile, joined Barcelona from La Liga rivals Sevilla back in 2010 and despite making 17 domestic appearances under Gerardo 'Tata' Martino this season, he now largely finds himself playing second fiddle to Jordi Alba for a place in the starting lineup at the Camp Nou.

At 29, the Brazilian international - who has earned 17 caps for the Selecao during his career - has a host of elite level experience and would surely command a starting berth at Anfield over the hapless Cissokho.

Liverpool, who currently occupy second place in the Premier League and trail Chelsea by seven points, will look to continue their highly-impressive 2013/14 campaign this weekend as they travel to Old Trafford to face Manchester United in what many are billing to be the most important clash between the two North West rivals seen in many years.
