Left Back Troubles – 3 Names Liverpool Should Add To Their January Wishlist

Ricardo Rodriquez (Vfl Wolfsburg)

Another German-based player, the Swiss man is quite a solid left back. Along with being solid defensively, he can get forward to great effect and has a wand of a left foot which can also come in handy for set piece situations. Not that Liverpool are in need of set piece takers though, they have Phillipe Coutinho who has been nothing but spectacular this season. He has been at Wolfsburg since 2012 and has gone to make 125 appearances. That he has scored 14 goals along that time shows that he is quite capable when it comes to scoring goals. Some of those goals are bound to be free kicks as Rodriquez has a dream of a left foot and when he hits them, they usually stay hit and rattle the back of the net.

He also has a lot of experience at big tournaments playing for the Switzerland national team; this will undoubtedly help him if he makes the move to England.

Jordan Amavi (Aston Villa)

Amavi would certainly be the cheapest option out of the three. The Frenchman moved to Aston Villa last term and impressed briefly before getting seriously injured. That injury kept him out for the entirety of last season. It is likely that many players will depart Aston Villa in January as they have failed to impress in The Championship so far. Amavi is a very enterprising left back who likes to get forward and involve in attacks. In his time at France, he also showed that he can be relied upon, defensively.If moves for more established left backs don’t work out, Klopp can look to Amavi to be the answer to his

If moves for more established left backs don’t work out, Klopp can look to Amavi to be the answer to his left-back troubles. Yes, he hasn’t been able to show what he is made of at Aston Villa for a prolonged period, but his time in France will hold him in good stead.
