Is Jose Enrique headed to Liverpool?
Still, unlike many other left backs out there at the moment, Enrique could be available reasonably cheaply considering his contract situation. Newcastle are said to be demanding £15million but there is no way that any club will be offering that amount. An offer between £4m and £8m is more likely to be on the cards.
There are certainly better left backs out there but many of the options available are either overpriced or not experienced enough to play in the Premier League. Fabio Coentrao is valued at €30m, Lyon’s Aly Cissokho around €20m, while Emilio Izaguirre is rated £10m+ by his club Celtic despite not yet proving himself in a big European league. Other options such as Leighton Baines and Gael Clichy really depend on the circumstances at their clubs.
To summarise then, despite watching the player a fair few times, I am still unconvinced about Enrique, but on the other hand, relative to other full backs currently on the market, he could be the best value for money. What do you think?
