James Milner has performed brilliantly in the left back position but the retired England international must be moved back into the midfield, which is his natural position.
Moreover, the Reds must sell Moreno and splash the cash to hire the services of a talented left back, who would serve the club in the years to come. One such star is Atletico Madrid left back Theo Hernandez, who is currently playing on loan for Deportivo Alaves.
The French full back has been heavily linked with a move to Anfield in the past few weeks and if the latest reports are anything to go by then Liverpool have a clear chance to sign the 19-year-old defender because he wants to leave the Spanish side.
Earlier in the month, we covered a report (via Cadena Ser) claiming that Klopp’s team has offered Theo a package that will make him earn five times more than his current salary. Theo has a release clause of 24 million euros ($25.7million) in his contract.
In addition, lasd week, reports (SW via Mundo Deportivo) suggested that Liverpool’s offer for the player is the highest, even more than the ones made by Barca and Real.
Now, according to Cadena Ser, the teenage fullback is angry with Atletico B boss Victor Alfonso for not giving him a fair chance and therefore, he wants to leave the club. The Spanish source add that it is now almost certain that Hernandez will exit Diego Simeone’s team.
In the current campaign, Theo has featured in 27 league games for Alaves and has provided four assists so far.
Hernandez has got the quality ti be a hit in the PL but his discipline could be a problem as he has seen yellow on 11 occasions in the La Liga and was sent off once, against Malaga, back in October 2016.
