Liverpool identify Enrique cover

Liverpool are considering an £8m for Ryan Bertrand when the transfer window reopens, the Metro understands.

Reds’ manager Brendan Rodgers is keen on bringing in cover for Jose Enrique, who is side-lined until February after undergoing knee surgery.

Jon Flanagan was reintroduced into the fold for the Merseyside derby at the weekend, but is still relatively inexperienced at the top level, whereas Bertrand have amassed two hundred and seventeen first team appearances since turning professional.

However, he has played just sixty-four minutes of Premier League football this season, with two other appearances coming in the Capital One Cup.

He has previously had loan spells with Bournemouth, Norwich City, Reading and Nottingham Forest but could now be set to secure a permanent move away from the club, with Anfield seemingly his most likely destination.

Elsewhere, Victor Moses has pleaded with Rodgers to be handed more game time, according to the Mirror.

The 22 year old moved to Anfield from Chelsea on loan towards the end of the summer transfer window, but has remained on the bench for their last three matches having started the first six following his arrival on Merseyside.

He has also played for Crystal Palace and Wigan Athletic.
