​Respected Liverpool Echo journalist James Pearce reports that Liverpool left-back Alberto Moreno could be sold this summer.

The Spanish left-back was left in bench on the bench in the Premier League first match against Stoke City at Britannia, as youngster Joe Gomez started in his position and is reportedly Brendan Rodgers’ preferred left-back.

Moreno started his first season at Liverpool on a high and scored a brilliant goal against Tottenham but then his form dipped and there were raised questions about his defensive abilities which have caused Liverpool many problems last season.

His defensive abilities came again and again under the magnifying glass but his attacking abilities were brilliant. Rodgers used him as a wing back for the most of the season with a three man defense deployed.

Liverpool correspondent James Pearce said:

“I think much hinges on how he responds to losing his place to Joe Gomez. If he knuckles down and shows the stomach for a fight, I don’t think Liverpool will sell him in this window.” said Pearce.

“But if he sulks and the right offer arrives, he could be on his way.”

Pearce said if Moreno leaves, Liverpool would likely look for a replacement.

“If Moreno did leave, Liverpool would have to look to secure some cover there, even if it was only a loan,”

Alberto Moreno attaracted interest from AS Roma this summer and reports also say that Barcelona could also launch a bid for the Spaniard as they view him as a perfect back up for Jordi Alba and someone who could replace him in future.
