According to the Daily Mail, Jurgen Klopp is ready to hand Alberto Moreno a reprieve at Liverpool.

The defender came in for increased criticism last season following a series of unimpressive performances at left back, with one notable poor display in the Europa League final.

The Reds had expected to sign a replacement left back this summer as a result, with the Spaniard appearing to have failed to impress Klopp.

However they faced frustration in their search as a move for Leicester City’s Ben Chilwell failed to materialise over the Foxes’ asking price.

The Premier League champions wanted £10 million for their man, but the Reds were only willing to pay £7 million for a player with limited Premier League experience.

He has since signed a new deal with Claudio Ranieri’s side and as a result, Klopp is ready to hand Moreno a reprieve and start him as first choice left back next season.

According to the Daily Mail, the Liverpool manager is considering using James Milner as an emergency back up in the position; while Ragnar Klavan and Nathaniel Clyne can also fill in should the situation demand it.
