Liverpool want to generate over £15m for backup left-back Alberto Moreno.
We’ve already fielded enquiries from both Milan clubs, but the defender prefers a switch back to Spain, reports Melissa Reddy in Goal.
This term, Moreno has only started two Premier League matches and at 24-years-old, naturally wants a move to play more first-team football.
Moreno isn’t a bad player, but his lack of defensive understanding makes him a liability in our already shaky backline.
There’ll be few tears when Moreno departs, but it does mean we’ll need to bring in a replacement.
Many would hope the potential new signing is a natural left-back who can challenge James Milner for the role, but it’s looking more likely that Fulham’s Ryan Sessegnon will arrive instead.
The 16-year-old is doing brilliantly in the Championship and Reddy claims he’s the no.1 target for the summer.
Is Sessegnon, given his age, an upgrade on Moreno right now? Arguably, but going in to 2017/18 with a schoolboy as second-choice left-back is risky, regardless of his enormous talent.
