Enrique, 29, is currently training separately from the Reds’ first-team squad, along with fellow unwanted players Fabio Borini and Mario Balotelli.
Others cite the equally unreliable Italian website Tuttomercatoweb as the source for such a report.
Tony Pulis, a manager who desires robust defenders, often playing centre-backs at full-back, hardly seems likely to be signing the injury prone and defensively fragile Enrique, even if it were on loan.
The Spaniard started six games last season but there are huge question marks over his fitness. He’s become more well known now for his frequent Instagram updates and posts resembling a lovestruck teenager.
He’s clearly unwanted at Liverpool, but it seems unlikely that there will be many Premier League clubs offering him a chance to remain in the top flight. Perhaps a loan move to a Championship, or back to La Liga, will materialise.
Enrique’s contract at Liverpool expires next summer.
