Liverpool must choose Ryan Sessegnon to replace Alberto Moreno instead of Ben Chilwell

With the Spaniard set to depart, the Reds could be in the market for a left-back this summer.

Liverpool are still in the hunt for a double this season, with Jurgen Klopp’s men still in the hunt for the Premier League and Champions League titles.

The summer could see the squad change with some fringe players set to depart.

One man who could be about to leave is Alberto Moreno, with the Independent reporting interest from Lazio.

That will leave Andy Robertson as the only left-back at the club and a signing seems necessary.

Ben Chilwell and Ryan Sessegnon are two players who can play left-back and both will be courted very highly this summer.

The Reds must go out and land the Fulham man and not England international Chilwell.

 

For starters, Sessegnon is the more versatile of the two.

The 18-year-old has netted 25 goals and contributed 17 assists in 113 appearances for Fulham, often operating on the left-wing.

Sessegnon is almost certainly likely to go cheaper than Chilwell too, given that the Cottagers are set to be relegated from the Premier League.

Chilwell is a regular at Leicester and performed admirably. He can, however, only play as a left-back which doesn’t really help Liverpool when they already have Robertson.

Sessegnon is four years the junior of Chilwell he could cover for the Scottish international when needed and also help out in attack when called upon.

The teenager is paid £8k-a-week by Fulham, according to Spotrac.

Liverpool would offer him a better contract than that but he would still represent better value for money than Chilwell.
