Alberto Moreno’s dwindling contract situation at Liverpool has attracted the interest of Marseille, according to a report by France Football.
The Spaniard will be free to leave Anfield for nothing next summer and the Ligue 1 outfit are apparently hoping to take advantage of that to engineer a cut-price winter deal.
Moreno is plainly never going to regain his first team place under Jurgen Klopp – which makes it unlikely he will sign new terms – so the German may as well cash in on the defender now.
Leaving Andy Robertson may be a concern for the Reds but if they are unable or unwilling to procure a short-term replacement during January, the versatility of James Milner can once more come to their rescue.
Both Milner and Moreno filled in at left-back during the midweek 3-1 win against Burnley. The Spaniard started the game and did not offer much on the ball and always looked susceptible on the counter attack.
By contrast, Milner stretched the game and added another dimension to Liverpool’s attacking play; picking up exactly where he left off during the 2016/17 season.
The Yorkshire man can cover ably for Robertson and with Naby Keita and Fabinho coming into their own in midfield, he should be free to cover in both full back roles.
