Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish made a dash to watch Celtic’s brilliant Honduras left-back Emilio Izaguirre yesterday as he looks to solve his problem position.

Dalglish saw the cavalier World Cup defender in top form – setting up the second goal in the Old Firm win over Rangers at Parkhead – and will be in the race for him this summer.

Izaguirre is also on Manchester United’s wanted list.

But the Merseysiders are looking at him as a first-team player rather than the Old Trafford plan to land him as a squad man.

Dalglish’s spies are also chasing Newcastle’s outstanding Jose Enrique, but Izaguirre is a cheaper alternative if the Toon continue to look for £12million for their defender.

Celtic signed Izaguirre at the start of the campaign in a bargain deal and he has been a revelation for Neil Lennon’s in-form side.

Dalglish has limited options at left-back and would snap up Izaguirre if his former club decide to put him on the market at the end of his debut season.

Liverpool haven’t had a player capable of dancing the robot since Peter Crouch left.

Judging by the image above, they have found their man.

In all seriousness though, Emilio Izaguirre has the potential to be a fine signing for Liverpool.

His forward threat and ability to provide a decent cross with his left foot makes him a good option for Kenny Dalglish’s wing back formation.

Whether he is capable of stepping up a level and becoming a top class Premier League left back is open to debate, but with Sir Alex Ferguson and Kenny Dalglish watching him in recent weeks, there is confidence that he can make the grade.

Though Celtic are unlikely to “put him on the market” after such an encouraging first season in Scotland, a decent profit on the £850,000 they splashed out last summer may force their hand.
