Alberto Moreno has become something of a forgotten figure at Liverpool since Andrew Robertson slotted into his place and cemented his position as the club’s first-choice left-back, but recent reports in the British media have placed him under the spotlight.
Indeed, his prolonged absence from the first-team suggests that he is surplus to requirements and free to leave Anfield when his contract expires at the end of the season.
But according to the Daily Mirror, Liverpool have offered an extended agreement which has been turned down by Moreno, and Unai Emery is now interested in securing a reunion with the Spaniard at Arsenal.
It’s a departure which will not evoke much by way of disappointment amongst the Reds faithful, but it will present the club with a conundrum of note.
The problem for Liverpool is that Robertson is so well established that it will be difficult to tempt a left-back to Anfield to merely play second fiddle to the Scotland captain – a factor which suggests Jurgen Klopp may turn to the academy system in order to find a solution.
In response to the reports the Liverpool supporters on Reddit have discussed how the club should progress in light of reports regarding Moreno’s departure, and a handful of different ideas have been thrown into the pot.
Plenty supporters are eager to see 18-year-old Adam Lewis promoted to the first-team following his impressive form at both U18 and U23 level, but others are hoping Liverpool can tempt the likes of Ben Chilwell, Ryan Sessegnon or Kieran Tierney to the club.
