Liverpool are weighing up a move for Chelsea left-back Ryan Bertrand, with reports suggesting Jose Mourinho is keen to sell the one-time England international this summer. The 24-year-old will be moved on from Stamford Bridge this summer, despite the fact Ashley Cole has left the west London outfit on a free transfer.

Mourinho is looking into the possibility of signing Atletico Madrid full-back Filipe Luis after refusing to match Southampton’s valuation for £30m-rated Luke Shaw, who looks certain to join Manchester United either before or after next month’s World Cup finals. The Portuguese coach is not considering the prospect of using Bertrand, who spend the second half of this season on loan at Aston Villa, as his first-choice left-back from the start of next season.

Liverpool, however, are keen on the youngster who joined Chelsea as a youth player from Gillingham in 2005, according to the Daily Star. He famously made his European debut in the 2012 Champions League final against Bayern Munich, which the Blues won to lift the European Cup for the first time in their history.

Reds’ boss Brendan Rodgers is also attempting to sign Sevilla left-back Alberto Moreno. The Merseyside outfit are believed to have made a £16.2m for the impressive Spanish full-back who is also on the radar of Real Madrid.

If Liverpool land Moreno, it may convince Bertrand to look elsewhere in his search for first-team football. Having already had loan spells with Bournemouth, Oldham Athletic. Norwich City, Reading, Nottingham Forest and Villa, the defender will be hoping to find a club where he can cement his status as their first-choice left-back.
