Bertrand has been one of the Saints’ most consistent performers since his move to the south coast from Chelsea in 2014, and has established himself for England.
But this could all change this summer, according to the Telegraph, with concerns over the future of manager Claude Puel.
Southampton reportedly “fear they are heading in the wrong direction” with Puel in charge, and this stagnation has led to speculation over summer departures for their key players.
But it is claimed that Bertrand could also be on the move, and the Reds are credited with an interest in signing the 27-year-old—three years after turning him down.
The Spaniard has found himself at odds with the Reds manager since his arrival in 2015, and James Milner has now taken up duties as first choice.
Fulham teenager Ryan Sessegnon has been revealed as Klopp’s priority target, but Bertrand would arguably be a better signing if Milner is to be replaced next term.
Bertrand is a strong all-rounder, possessing the defensive stability and attacking sensibility that Liverpool require, while he is four years Milner’s junior, with plenty left in the tank.
Linking the Reds with want-away Southampton players is clearly an easy move for reporters, given the club’s recent transfer history.
But if Liverpool can acknowledge their mistake and replace the outgoing Moreno with Bertrand, it would be a great move.
