The Spain Under-21s international who impressed in the La Liga last season is being considered a possible replacement for Alberto Moreno who will be leaving Anfield this summer.

Moreno completely fell down Jurgen Klopp's defensive pecking order following the emergence of Andy Robertson in 2017.

The Liverpool boss has favored Robertson in the left-back position in the past two seasons and Moreno being shown the exit door this summer means the Reds will need a back-up for Robo.

According to Spanish reporters Sport, Liverpool have made Firpo a target this summer but they must first meet the player's £45m release clause in his contract.

The 22-year-old Real Betis defender has a £45 million release clause in his contract and Sport claimed the Reds are ready to trigger it - as per Jurgen Klopp's admission of splashing out this window.

Meanwhile, Jurgen Klopp recently opened up - his Liverpool will need a cover left-back in the place of Alberto Moreno who joined Villareal on a free transfer, days ago.

"We will see. What can I say?", Klopp said when asked about the arrival of a new full-back.

"I said already, we have to think about everything and in the end maybe we do nothing, but we will see.

"I can imagine we have a look at all the things around us. Of course, we lost a left-back [in Moreno] but today we saw two pretty young ones, and James [Milner] played it and all that stuff. We will see."
