The Reds are short in the full-back department after the England international leaving club as well as Jon Flanagan suffering a set back in his return from a serious injury lay off. The youngster has been out for so long now that it is unknown whether he will be the same player he used to be when he returns.

Likely with this in mind manager Brendan Rodgers has decided to look at the recently relegated defender to bolster his options at the back. This is after the Merseyside club were turned back in their attempts to sign Southampton ace Nathaniel Clyne.

Trippier impressed for Sean Dyche’s side last season despite being part of a defence that conceded 53 goals in the 38 Premier League games. The 24-year-old played in every league fixture and can impact matches going forward as well as at the back, as evidenced by his four assists. The England Under 21’s international was a product of Manchester City’s academy, but never played for the Citizens before moving to Turf Moor.
