Arsenal are interested in a potential deal to sign Liverpool FC’s forgotten man Alberto Moreno, according to a report in England.

The Daily Mirror is reporting that the Reds are prepared to lose the Spain international at the end of the 2018-19 Premier League season.

The same article states that Moreno hasn’t expressed an interest in signing a new deal with the Merseyside outfit in the current campaign.

Moreno has entered the final eight months of his current deal with Liverpool FC and the former Sevilla man will become a free agent at the end of the season.

According to the same story, Arsenal manager Unai Emery is interested in a deal to sign a new left-back to make further improvements to the Gunners defence.

The Spanish head coach worked with Moreno during his stint in charge of Sevilla before the full-back completed a £12m move to Liverpool FC in the 2014 summer transfer window.

Moreno was part of the Sevilla team that won the Europa League under Emery in 2014 when the La Liga outfit beat Benfica on penalties in the final in Turin.

Ironically, the 26-year-old defender was part of the Liverpool FC team that lost 3-1 to Emery’s side in the Europa League final in Basel in 2016.

Moreno had a particularly difficult night and the Spanish full-back has struggled to secure a place in Jurgen Klopp’s starting side since that final loss.

The Liverpool FC manager made the surprise decision to start versatile midfielder James Milner at left-back in the 2016-17 such was the erosion of his faith in Moreno.

Klopp addressed the weakness in the 2017 summer transfer window when Liverpool FC signed Andy Robertson in an £8m deal from Championship side Hull City.

Robertson has been a big hit at Liverpool FC and the Scotland captain has established himself as Klopp’s first choice left-back.

Alberto Moreno’s Liverpool FC career

2014-15: 37 starts, four substitute appearances, two goals and one assist.

2015-16: 50 starts, seven substitute appearances, one goal and eight assists.

2016-17: Nine starts, 12 substitute appearances and one assist.

2017-18: 25 starts, five substitute appearances and three assists.
