The Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern are desperate for a new defender to join the club this summer, with the left-back spot proving to be a very problematic area for the Reds…
Natural defender Alberto Moreno has struggled whenever he has played this season, with midfielder James Milner often filling in instead of him, though that is not a solution that Liverpool can look towards long-term.
Indeed, it seems as though Jurgen Klopp has identified the player that could fill that gap – with Cadena Sar reporting that Liverpool are keen on €24m-rated Atletico Madrid defender Theo Hernandez.
He has been a regular in La Liga this season whilst on loan with Deportivo Alavés, making 24 appearances so far, proving himself to be a vital part of proceedings at the club.
A solid all-rounder, our landlord thinks that he would be a great choice for Klopp. At just 19-years-old, he would also be the long-term solution that the German craves.
