Liverpool have finally gotten their man according to The Times. Liverpool have agreed a £5.5million fee with Newcastle for left-back Jose Enrique. Liverpool have been searching for a left-back all summer and now it seems that our initial target, Enrique, is the one we will be getting.
We were linked with the likes of Clichy, Cissokho and Baines but none of those deals seemed to carry much weight.
Now with Enrique set to join Liverpool following his Twitter outburst where he claimed Newcastle lack ambition, our left side of defence will actually look solid this coming season with Enrique and Aurelio and Robinson as cover.
Enrique is set to arrive at Liverpool any time now to undergo his medical and agree personal terms with the club which should not be much of a headache. If this deal does go through for £5.5million it will be a bargain for Liverpool in my opinion as we were initially quoted £15million for him at the start of the summer. It just goes to show that patience does pay off at times in the transfer market.
