Liverpool join race to sign Alberto Moreno

Published 1 Comments

Liverpool have joined the race for impressive Sevilla full-back Alberto Moreno, according to recent transfer speculation.

As reported by The Daily Mail early on Thursday morning, the Reds are now in the battle to sign the £20 million-rated defender who has also been tracked by fierce rivals Manchester United.

It has been a rather good week for Moreno, with the talented 21-year-old having been named in Spain's provisional squad for the World Cup earlier this week before then going on to triumph in the Europa League final on Wednesday night.

Moreno - who has one international cap to his name and has also proved to be one of Sevilla's key players this season - played all 120 minutes of the nervy penalty-shootout win over Benfica at the Juventus Stadium in Turin.

Fellow Spaniard Jose Enrique is Liverpool's first-choice left-back, but unfortunately went on to miss most of the 2013/14 campaign due to a serious knee injury.

Enrique's unfortunate absence - coupled with Liverpool's obvious defensive frailties - have led to widespread expectations that manager Brendan Rodgers will dip into the transfer market for reinforcements this summer, particularly with the club set to return to the Champions League.

Given his obvious potential, Moreno would be a superb signing for Liverpool. However, with Manchester United - as well as the likes of Chelsea, Manchester City and Real Madrid - having also been following him closely, it could be that they will face significant competition to get him to Anfield.

Indeed, Manchester United - who suffered a dismal 2013/14 campaign following the disastrous appointment of David Moyes - are also expected to be on the lookout for a new left-back of their own during the next transfer window, with France stalwart Patrice Evra out of contract at Old Trafford.
