Liverpool headed into the New Year with a seven-point gap ahead of closest rivals Manchester City. But with the transfer window now open, comings and goings are expected at Anfield this January.
And news doing the rounds say that the Reds have found a replacement for Alberto Moreno who is keen to leave the outfit after attracting interests from foreign clubs.
Sevilla is said to be sniffing around the player who has fessed up that he is unhappy at the club under German boss Jurgen Klopp.
Bristol City left-back Lloyd Kelly has been handpicked as the Moreno’s replacement.
It is said that the youngster will act as a backup plan for Andy Robertson who has successfully nailed down the left-back berth in Klopp’s squad.
Kelly will be out of contract at the end of the season, with no deal on the horizon yet, which means he could be acquired for a cut-price fee.
Moreno has bemoaned about how Klopp has treated him, declaring it unfair and certainly not what he’d expected after his comeback from injury.
Moving back to Spain is etched on his mind, says the defender, who is in the fifth year of his contract and admits no deal to extend his stay is in the pipeline.
