Alberto Moreno will be out of contract at Anfield in June, and Newcastle should look at bringing him to Tyneside.

The need for reinforcements at full-back on both sides of the pitch is glaring. The left side, in particular, has been a problem in recent years for Rafa Benitez.

The only senior player in the squad known for being an orthodox left-back is Paul Dummett.

With Dummett being used as a third centre-back in Rafa’s preferred wing-back formation, the need for reinforcements is clear.

Antonio Barreca’s disastrous loan spell has ended, and Kenedy no longer seems part of Rafa’s plans. The result is that Newcastle are desperately short of depth on the left.

At 26-years-old, Moreno should still have his best years ahead of him, and could be a shrewd acquisition, were Newcastle to pursue him.

Moreno has struggled to get any game time at Liverpool this season, thanks largely to the impressive form of Andy Robertson. The result is that the Spaniard’s future definitely lies away from Merseyside.

Solving problematic position will be key next season

If Newcastle can add depth at left-back, Rafa would finally solve a problem that has plagued him for a while.

Moreno’s attacking flair could see him as competition for both Dummett in a flat back four line-up, and Matt Ritchie, in a three centre-back formation.

Although he is just over Mike Ashley’s 25-and-under age policy, his availability without a transfer fee would surely see a move sanctioned.

A move that suits both Newcastle and the player make it a deal that Benitez should seriously consider.
