With Gael Clichy on the verge of joining Manchester City as it is being reported that he is undergoing a medical there today, Liverpool are set to miss out on another transfer target.
The left-back position has been one that Kenny Dalglish is looking to solve for this coming season as Fabio Aurelio would be the first choice but you can not rely on him as he is always injured and then young Jack Robinson has all the potential to be a great left-back one day, but it may be too early to entrust him with being the first choice candidate for this season.
So the search continues for Liverpool and we are being linked with a move for Celtic’s 25 year old left-back Emilio Izaguirre again. We have been constantly linked with a move for the Honduras international after his great season for Celtic where he won both the SPFA Players’ Player of the Year and Scottish Premier League Player of the Year awards for 2010–11. Fanatix is suggesting that Celtic may be prepared to sell Izaguirre for £11million.
Whether he would be able to produce the same kind of form in the Premier League remains to be seen as many players who have shone in the SPL have come to the Premier League and looked pretty average.
Liverpool have to move fast now in trying to get a new left-back before the season starts. Newcastle’s Jose Enrique is still a target and we could know more about his future after he speaks to the Newcastle bosses this week.
Courtesy of ElPistoleroJFT96, we have some video footage of Izaguirre. What are your thoughts on this left-back?
