Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is ready to give up on Alberto Moreno and move his priorities elsewhere.
According to reports in the Mirror, Liverpool are ready to abandon their pursuit of Sevilla full back Alberto Moreno and switch their sights towards Sport Lisbon man Marcos Rojo.
Moreno had been manager Brendan Rodgers’ prime target to fill the left back position at Anfield, but the two clubs are no closer to agreeing to a fee for the young Spaniard, meaning that the Reds could reignite their interest in Rojo, a player who featured for Argentina in their World Cup victory over Bosnia & Herzegovina.
The 24 year-old full back has enjoyed a fruitful spell in Portugal with Sporting Lisbon after firstly making his name in Europe with Spartak Moscow, the club that he joined from hometown club Estudiantes.
A player with natural attacking instincts, Rojo would provide plenty of width and attacking intent on the left flank for Liverpool, although he is a player that has occasionally been criticised for neglecting the defensive side of the game.
With Moreno being a similar type of full back it is clear that Rodgers is looking to bring in players who can provide the width for his team from defensive positions, although his negotiation team must manage to agree a fee with one of their clubs first.
