Without a shadow of a doubt Liverpool have troubles at left-back.
Whilst James Milner has stepped up the mark and performed fabulously at full-back this season, it is not his natural position and if Liverpool are looking for a long-term solution, Milner should not be it.
Not only is it not his preferred position, but Milner is now 30-years-old which is a good age for a footballer but not if you’re playing full-back in a team that requires constant running and usage of energy.
Halstenberg on the other hand is a 25-year-old left back for RB Leipzig and he is having a cracking season.
He is one of three players to have played every game this season and has made more interceptions per game than any other team mate. Stats courtesy of our mates at Whoscored.com.
The German is tall strong and paced and well worth considering a look at.
