Newcastle United Should Look To Target This Out Of Contract Liverpool Defender In The Upcoming Summer Window

Newcastle United will be in desperate need of a left back as the summer transfer window approaches as the Magpies will have just Paul Dummett as an outright left back. The club managed to sign Antonio Barreca; a left back on loan from Ligue 1 outfit until the end of the season.

So Benitez has been able to solve the problem for a short while, but we expect United to again dive in the transfer market in the next few months for a left back. On occasion, the manager had to use winger Matt Ritchie in that role to fill in when Dummet was injured in the earlier half of the season.

One player that should intrigue the Tyneside outfit is Liverpool’s left-back Alberto Moreno. The Spaniard has endured a tough time ever since the emergence of Andy Robertson, and we feel that he is likely to leave the club for free in the summer as his contract is set to expire.

Given his defensive mishaps over the years, it is surprising that he is being linked with Barcelona continuously. We believe Moreno can be a good fit for a club like Newcastle. The defender did manage to improve in his time at Liverpool, but Robertson has been so consistent that the door to the first team has been firmly shut for Moreno.

Most importantly the Toon can sign this experienced fullback for free, and that should suit the club in the transfer market as well. Moreno might have some frailties on the defensive front, but he is outstanding while going forward. He has a vicious left foot, and that would suit the Magpies as he can deliver some dangerous crosses from the left.

Sometimes players often fail to express themselves at the top club maybe because the expectations are often too high. Before his stint with Liverpool, Moreno had a successful spell with Sevilla where he was part of a Europa League winning campaign. The 26-year-old has also represented Spain four times, and he could be a shrewd signing for Newcastle.

However, Barcelona are a big fish who could lure anyone and especially a Spaniard. But, there is no doubt that he would be an understudy for Jordi Alba for the most part. At Newcastle, he can get regular playing time and if he’s brave enough, he should opt for a club where he can play regularly to prove himself at the top level after an indifferent spell with Liverpool. At Barcelona, he can load up on trophies, but for many, that would be the easy way out.
