The transfer window is finally open and Liverpool, having already secured a deal for Mohamed Salah following overstretched negotiations with AS Roma, is keen to off-load a few of their flops from previous season and bring in proper replacements in order to fight for a Premier League title as well as proceed through to the knockouts of prestigious Champions League football.
The Reds are keen to transfer out Spanish left back Alberto Moreno who failed to impress Jurgen Klopp due to his defensive vulnerability and error-prone display. He lost his place to veteran James Milner and the Englishman deputized perfectly in a make-shift left back role. Moreno, who joined the Reds back in 2014 from Sevilla (for a fee of £12 million), failed to improve his game despite enough first team opportunities. The Reds boss Klopp, thus, is now sighting his alternatisves and as things stand, Moreno does not hold a future ahead with Liverpool.
The 24-year old Spaniard, however, has been attracting interest from Premier League counterparts as well as Serie A heavyweights. Swansea City reportedly made an offer of £13 mil, so did Napoli who bid around £11 mil to bring Moreno in Naples. But none of them met Liverpool’s £15 mil valuation and saw their bids got rejected by the Merseysiders.
As per latest reports from Italian outlet Corriere dello Sport, AS Roma held talks with Liverpool about the availability of Alberto Moreno. The two clubs, thus, might get involved in transfer negotiations once more in coming weeks.
Liverpool, meanwhile, have found his replacement in Hull City left back Andrew Robertson – the 23-year old Scottish international who has been in Klopp’s wishlist since last summer. The £8 mil rated defender is keen to be back in Premier League following Hull’s relegation and the occasion of playing for one of the biggest clubs in Europe must excite the youngster ahead of a new campaign.
