Jamie Carragher jokes about Jon Flanagan and Barcelona on Twitter

The Liverpool legend is - quite understandably - a big fan of the full-back.

Jamie Carragher has joked that only Luis Enrique doesn't want Liverpool to hand Jon Flanagan a new contract.

Indeed, one would assume Carragher is jesting that Flanagan is good enough for Barcelona, such is the impact he makes for the Reds when he's on song.

The Liverpool icon was citing a poll in which 99% of voters said the 23-year-old deserves a new Liverpool deal.

All joking aside, there's no overstating how good Flanagan is. He was one of the most in-form left-backs when Liverpool almost won the title and his boundless energy and determined tackling mean that, with some fine tuning, he could become one of the Premier League's best full-backs overall.

Alberto Moreno's Liverpool career has run its course - unless Jurgen Klopp feels he can coach him enough to make him a good squad player.

With Flanagan, Liverpool are a different prospect. Without any more injury troubles, the 23-year-old could become a very big player at Anfield over the next few years.
