Liverpool reopen Alberto Moreno transfer talks

Published Add your comment

Liverpool have reportedly re-opened talks with Sevilla to sign highly rated left-back Alberto Moreno.

The Reds have been linked with the Spaniard for most of the transfer window, with Brendan Rodgers keen to strengthen his defence who conceded 50 league goals last season.

Liverpool have already had a £16 million bid for the defender rejected, as his club rate the 22-year-old in the region of £20 million.

It was thought that Liverpool have turned their attention away from him, as they put an £8 million bid in for Swansea City youngster Ben Davies, however that was rejected and the Wales international looks set to join Tottenham Hotspur instead.

That seems to have forced Rodgers to re-open talks to sign Moreno and reluctantly give in to Sevilla's demands by upping the fee.

Problem position

Left-back was a place that Liverpool struggled with last season. Jose Enrique spent most of the season on the sidelines with injury and Jon Flanagan was forced to fill in their. Although he done a grand job, Flanagan would much prefer to play on his natural right-hand side were he is more comfortable.

Other players such as Glen Johnson and Daniel Agger also appeared their, with loan signing Aly Cissokho filling in to take a firm grip-hold on the position.

However with Enrique returning, do the Reds really need to splash out all that for Moreno? Enrique looks solid enough when putting on a Red shirt and always gives 100 per cent.

Decent cover

Liverpool have seen Flanagan do a fine job when playing there and if anything does happen he could always slot into the role again if needs be.

Rodgers is clearly looking to improve his squad as Champions League football returns to Anfield this upcoming season.

Moreno has excellent European experience, winning the Europa League last season, and is young and hungry which Rogers welcomes, as he can nurture his footballing philosophy on him.
