Liverpool sign a left-back – but not the one fans were hoping for


Liverpool have finally signed a left-back, but there are no guarantees that he’s the answer to their defensive crisis.

The Reds offered former Barcelona starlet Juanma a contract after the 19-year-old impressed over the course of his 10-day trial, as per the Liverpool Echo.

Villarreal were also interested in the player, but he has now joined up with Liverpool’s under-23 squad, whose boss Michael Beale has compared him to a young Pablo Zabaleta.


While Juanma could be one for the future, it’s the first team who urgently need a new left-back, unless they are to rely on Alberto Moreno all season.

Jurgen Klopp attempted to bring in Ben Chilwell from Leicester, but he snubbed a move to Anfield and signed a new deal at the King Power instead.

Liverpool’s energies should really be focused on recruiting a left-back to strengthen their top four ambitions, with the rumour mill continuing to link Germany international Jonas Hector with Merseyside.
