Dani Alves, Barcelona's Brazilian right-back, seems surplus to requirements at the Camp Nou and has been linked with moves to PSG all summer; but Liverpool could swoop a deal for the 31-year-old defender.

Liverpool's need for a right-back

There's no question in the matter: Liverpool need a right back. Deals for Atletico Madrid's Javi Manquillo and Sevilla left back Alberto Moreno are forever on-going. But even if the transfers of the two youngsters were completed prior to any Alves activity, Liverpool shouldn't hesitate in moving for the experienced Brazilian.

With endless Champions League appearances Alves could benefit the club massively next season. With Barcelona under going a monumental transition they seem to be flogging the older members of the squad; so he could well be available on the cheap.
