Liverpool look to Premier League rivals for 30-year-old stalwart to finally solve left-back issue

Liverpool are reportedly interested in signing Leicester City left-back Christian Fuchs after contract talks with the Foxes stalled.

The 30-year-old had begun talks with the Premier League champions over a new deal after seeing a number of his teammates agree new terms this summer.

However, according to The Sun, the two parties have struggled to find a breakthrough in negotiations, leading to Liverpool being alerted to the situation and possibly lining up a move before the transfer deadline.

Fuchs was a key figure in Leicester’s success last season, establishing himself as a reliable and consistent performer on the left flank.

In turn, it’s no surprise to see that he is gaining interest from elsewhere, but whether or not he would want to leave the King Power Stadium remains to be seen.

As for Liverpool, Jurgen Klopp must address that area of the pitch before the deadline as he has continued to struggle to find a solution to the problem.

Alberto Moreno was guilty of making more mistakes in the season opener at Arsenal, which eventually led to James Milner starting at left-back in the last two games.

Despite the fact that he is performing admirably in that role, given that the 30-year-old is obviously not a natural in that position, it would certainly be seen as a wise move from Klopp to bring in a genuine left-back rather than try to find a short-term fix.

With just a few days remaining until the transfer window slams shut, it remains to be seen whether or not Liverpool make their move, or if Fuchs will eventually agree to a new deal with Claudio Ranieri’s men and remain at Leicester for the rest of this season at least.
