With his contract due to expire next summer, Alberto Moreno’s future at Liverpool remains uncertain.
He is clearly not in Jurgen Klopp’s immediate plans, although he does get some game time when Liverpool rotate.
But for the sake of his own career and for the financial benefit of Liverpool, a permanent January exit is a reasonable solution that suits all parties.
Sevilla are thought to be keen on the Liverpool left-back, although ESPN reports that they are monitoring his situation ahead of a potential free transfer in the summer.
If Liverpool can find a potential suitor for Moreno in January, they should let him go, rather than losing him for free in the summer.
Klopp would not miss the Spaniard. Liverpool have other options to cover the left-back area.
Andrew Robertson is the first-choice left-back, but James Milner can also play there.
It could also give young starlet Adam Lewis the chance to emulate Trent Alexander-Arnold’s meteoric rise to first-team prominence.
Having played just three games for the Reds this season, Moreno surely knows his time at Anfield is coming to its natural conclusion.
At such a vital stage in his career, he must take the opportunity to leave Liverpool and kick on elsewhere.
And Liverpool should actively offer him to clubs in the summer so that they receive some money for him.
