Forget Alberto Moreno: 3 targets Liverpool could turn to to solve their problem position

Daley Blind - Ajax

Liverpool are desperately looking to strengthen their squad ahead of their return to the Champions League and the gaping spot in their squad that appears to be the left-back role, having been forced to play right-back Jon Flanagan out of position for the majority of the season.

Meanwhile, regular left-back Jose Enrique has both suffering a severe knee injury  that saw his season pretty much ended by October and has never really earned the faith of manager Brendan Rodgers. As a result, the search for a new specialist left-back has been well documented, with Alberto Moreno having emerged as the number one target for the Liverpool.

However, with Sevilla having confirmed a deal will not be going ahead after failing to reach an agreement over the exciting Spanish prospect, Liverpool may well have to turn their attentions elsewhere to address that problem position.

Squawka has taken a look at a few options that Rodgers might wish to consider ahead of a crucial campaign for his Liverpool side.
