Betis’ Junior targeted by Reds

Transfers
Liverpool are assessing several possible replacements for Alberto Moreno this summer with Real Betis' Junior Firpo among them.

Liverpool are assessing several possible replacements for Alberto Moreno this summer with Real Betis’ Junior Firpo among them.

The European champions are looking at Junior as one option to replace Moreno, who is leaving the Reds this summer following the end of his contract.

Boss Jurgen Klopp has Andrew Robertson as his first-choice full-back down the left but needs competition and could be ready to make a move for Junior, who it’s believed has a 50m euros release clause.

The 22-year-old represented Spain at Under-21 level before switching allegiance to the country of his birth, Dominican Republic, and has established himself at Betis in the past 12 months, making 24 La Liga appearances last season, scoring three goals and managing four assists.

Newcastle and Crystal Palace have also been linked with Junior this summer and he’s just one of several left-sided defenders/wingers that Klopp and sporting director Michael Edwards have their eye on.

Leicester’s Ben Chilwell has been linked in the past but he is not thought to be on the wishlist this summer, while Southampton’s Matt Targett is also being monitored.
