Rodgers under pressure to solve left-back problem.
Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is set to go back to his long term left-back target Ryan Bertrand this summer after failing to sign Swansea City’s Ben Davies and Sevilla starlet Alberto Moreno, reports the Daily Mail.
Bertrand could be surplus to requirements at Chelsea and Rodgers has long been eyeing the 24-year old as a solution to his left-back woes.
The Reds’ primary left-back Jose Enrique’s future is in doubt at Anfield and young Jon Flanagan, who impressed last term, may not be sufficient to match Liverpool’s workload with the Champions League this season.
Rodgers therefore is under pressure to recruit a first choice left-back for the new season, and a Champions League winner in Bertrand may not be a bad option.
Chelsea, however, are reluctant to sell to a direct rival and could demand up to £8 million for the England international, who spent the second half of last season on-loan at Aston Villa.
Bertrand could be desperate to move to salvage his career though and might force a switch to Anfield, making Liverpool’s job a bit easier.
