The search for a left-back for Liverpool is hotting up as we edge closer to the start of the season. Virtually every left-back you can think of has been linked with a move to Liverpool this summer from the likes of Clichy, Enrique, Baines and Cissokho. The latest player linked with a move to Liverpool today is Porto’s Uruguay international Alvaro Pereira.

Pereira is currently in Argentina taking part in the Copa America for Uruguay alongside Liverpool striker Luis Suarez. The Portugese paper ABola is running with the story of Liverpool targeting Pereira who is capable of playing as a left-back or left-midfield. The report suggests that Pereira has a release clause of £17.5million (20million euro) and if Liverpool are willing to pay that much they could capture the 25-year-old.

Liverpool are also being linked with another Uruguay international, centre back Diego Godin. Maybe Kenny Dalglish has seen the success that their fellow countryman Luis Suarez has had at Liverpool and hopes that they could come in and do the same. The fact that Uruguay have done so well in the Copa America by reaching the Final goes to show how talented these players are.
