£12m left-back Alberto Moreno has barely featured in the Premier League for Liverpool under Jurgen Klopp and a move to Turkey could be on the cards.

Fenerbahce have joined the race to sign Alberto Moreno when his contract at Liverpool expires this summer, according to Haber365.

Moreno is one of Liverpool’s longest serving players, having arrived at Anfield five years ago in a £12 million deal from Sevilla. But the left-back has spent most of his time on Merseyside out of the first-team picture.

 

The 26-year-old has played just four games this season, with Jurgen Klopp clearly losing faith in a player whose mistakes cost Liverpool dear in Europa League and EFL Cup final defeats to Sevilla and Manchester City respectively.

Moreno is expected to leave on a free this summer, although Haber365 believe he could be offered a fresh start with struggling Super Lig giants Fenerbahce, who are hoping to open talks over a bargain deal.

Interestingly, former Liverpool director Damien Comolli is at the heart of a potential transfer with the Frenchman currently working as Fenerbahce’s recruitment chief.

Sport claimed in March that Moreno was set to make a shock switch to Barcelona on a two-year deal. Though he would surely be only a back-up to Jordi Alba at the Camp Nou while a move to Turkey could see him play first-team football again after so long out of action.
