Liverpool Defenders Set to Be Offered New Long-Term Contracts


Alberto Moreno will be offered a new long-term deal at Liverpool, according to journalist Paul Joyce.

The left back joined from Sevilla in 2014 and has one year left on his current contract, meaning he has just one season left before becoming a free agent.

Moreno was expected to leave Anfield last summer after the purchase of Andy Robertson, enjoyed a strong pre-season and managed to work his way back into Jürgen Klopp’s first team plans.

After an impressive start to the season, Moreno sustained an ankle injury against Spartak Moscow in the Champions League, which ruled him out for over two months.

This setback allowed Andy Robertson to establish himself in the first-team and subsequently become Jürgen Klopp’s first choice left back, although the Spaniard will hope to win his place back next season.

Ragnar Klavan is also set to be offered a contract extension to stay on Merseyside.

The Estonian joined Liverpool from Augsburg in 2016, and like Moreno his current deal runs until the summer of 2019.

The 32-year-old has made 27 appearances this season and has been a solid back-up option for Jürgen Klopp in defence, whilst adding some vital squad depth to the Liverpool side.

Would you be happy to see both Moreno and Klavan extend their stays at Anfield?
