Defender linked with loan switch

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is ready to make an offer to Benfica for the services of Paraguayan defender Lorenzo Melgarejo.

The left-back is seen as one of the best options for the Reds as they look for cover for Jose Enrique, who has had injury problems in the past, and the fact the 22-year-old can also operate in midfield is an added bonus.

Rodgers wants to take Melgarejo on a season-long loan deal with a view to a permanent move should it prove to be successful.

Any deal is by no means cut and dried though, as the defender is under contract at Benfica until 2018 so they are in no rush and the Reds would also need a work permit for the player which would delay a switch.
