Left-back-less Liverpool start search

Liverpool boss Roy Hodgson has admitted that finding a new left-back for the club is now one of his priorities.

The Reds have lost both Fabio Aurelio and Emiliano Insua (who is set to complete a £5million move to Fiorentina this week), and now finds no left-back in the squad.

He said, “We are short and that is going to be one of the priorities. We need to find a replacement for Emiliano and Fabio. That is one job we will have to do.

“As far as we understand, the deal for Insua has been completed between the clubs and his agent is sorting out personal terms. Maybe it was the right time for him to move on.”

Liverpool have been linked with a £6million move for Wigan left-back Maynor Figueroa.
