Moreno delay sees Liverpool turn to Rojo

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has turned to Argentina international Marcos Rojo after a proposed move for Sevilla’s Alberto Moreno stalled, ESPN has reported.

Sevilla are insisting on a fee in the region of £20m for the left-back, it’s claimed, and the Reds want to bring the price down. If the Spanish club refuse then Rojo, currently with Sporting Lisbon, would be the next player on Rodgers’ agenda.

Rojo has been on Liverpool’s horizon for 18 months and played for his country in their World Cup opener against Bosnia-Herzegovina, helping La Albiceleste to a 2-1 win. The 24-year-old moved to Portugal after a spell in Russia with Spartak Moscow and has 24 international caps to his name.

He began his senior career at Estudiantes, breaking into the first team in 2008 and spending three years at the club before moving to Moscow, helping the La Plata club to the Copa Libertadores.

Rodgers is said to still consider Moreno his first choice signing at left-back but the feeling is that Sevilla’s asking price is too high for a player of Moreno’s experience level. The 21-year-old has three international caps and was named in Spain’s preliminary squad for the World Cup but didn’t make the cut, and has played barely 60 first team games for his club.
