Two new targets for left-back as Liverpool move away from Moreno

A week ago, Liverpool looked to be on the verge of signing Spanish left-back Alberto Moreno, numerous reports suggested the deal was agreed, however that has not materialised and now reports suggest Liverpool are looking elsewhere.

The two players now being linked are the two who we scouted on This Is Anfield last month – Argentina’s Marcos Rojo and Switzerland’s Ricardo Rodriguez.

Rojo is 24 and currently at Sporting Lisbon, he’s also capable of playing at centre-back but is Argentina’s first choice left-back for the World Cup.

Rodriguez is 21 and was hugely impressive for Wolfsburg last season in Bundesliga, he’s left-back for Switzerland and impressed in their opening game against Ecuador.

Rojo is linked in The Mirror, while Rodriguez is linked in The Daily Mail.

The Mail claim Sevilla are now requesting £20 million for Moreno, who failed to make the cut for Spain’s final 23-man squad for the World Cup. The Mirror say similarly, adding that Liverpool will not go above £13.5m for Moreno.
