Reds interested in bringing Alvaro Arbeloa back to the club.
Liverpool are looking to bring right back Alvaro Arbeloa back to the club during the January transfer window, report the Express, after the former Anfield favourite fell out of favour with Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti, who prefers to field the young Dani Carvajal in Arbeloa’s favoured positions.
Arbeloa enjoyed a successful stint at Anfield under former manager Rafa Benitez, who signed him as a relatively unheralded young player from La Liga outfit Deportivo La Coruna and sold him to Real Madrid as a seasoned Spanish international in 2009, with Arbeloa having gone on to become an important part of the Real Madrid machine during his spell at the Bernabeu.
The emergence of youth prospect Carvajal has pushed Arbeloa onto the bench at the Bernabeu, however, and having reached the age of 31 Arbeloa may now be ready to leave the club in a bid to play more first team football, something that is certainly likely to be on offer at Anfield.
Liverpool are likely to be on the lookout for a right back to replace England international Glen Johnson, who is out of contract at the Merseyside club at the end of the season and looks unlikely to extend his contract with the club.
