Liverpool to replace Moreno with Sessegnon – reports

Fulham left-back Ryan Sessegnon remains Liverpool’s number one target in that position, according to reports.

The Reds intend to sell Alberto Moreno, who has struggled for minutes on the pitch this season, as part of their summer clearout and will look to provide better competition for James Milner on the left side of defence.

The Liverpool Echo claims that the Merseysiders intend to strike a deal with Fulham to bring £10million-rated Sessegnon to Anfield.

With the Cottagers set for another season in the Championship – following their defeat to Reading in the play-off semi-finals – it looks likely that Sessegnon might leave or at least be subject to a number of lucrative offers.

Another name heavily linked with Jurgen Klopp’s men is Hull City left-back Andrew Robertson but the Liverpool Echo understands that any move is ‘unlikely’.

Sessegnon, who turns 17 on Thursday, is now thought to be their primary target with the England under-19 international enjoying a brilliant breakthrough season in the second tier.

He has scored seven goals in 30 appearances for Fulham with his first professional contract being activated on July 1.

Meanwhile, the Reds are looking to recoup the £12million they paid to Sevilla for Moreno in 2014 with a return to Spain looking the most likely option.

Moreno’s reputation has been damaged recently as he has come under criticism for his defending at times but there is still reportedly a good possibility of a move to Spain.
