Why Liverpool will not be in the market for a new left-back?

Liverpool FC players has resumed training for the pre-season at Melwood this week. Almost a full squad has returned from their summer holidays except new boy Jordan Henderson, given extra days off after the U21 Championship. While, Luis Suarez and Lucas Leiva are both at Argentina for the Copa America and Dirk Kuyt are not seen at the Melwood training ground.

One particular photo has caught my attention is Emiliano Insua, who is back from Galatasaray on a season long loan. Are Liverpool looking to offload the young Argentinean fullback again?

Emiliano Insua All the rumours on Liverpool in the transfer market for a new left-back has left me wondering why? Insua, a prominent figure in Rafael Benitez squad before being shipped out on loan last summer by Roy Hodgson.

At 22-year-old, he fits FSG criteria and to nurture a young squad at Anfield. He may not be a good over-lapping fullback but given that his age and defensive quality at left-back during his 2009/10 Premier League campaign under Benitez. He has made a total of 42 appearances for Liverpool in all competition, scored 1 goal and 5 assists in 2009/10.

Although the 2009/10 season was an ill-fated one for Liverpool FC which the Reds finished at 7th place. The young Argentinean fullback rarely making any rash tackles. He only collected 3 yellow cards in all 42 games that season.

Even though, Dalglish are desperate to cut the dead woods at Anfield. Most noticeably, Paul Konchesky will be on his way out as he is surplus the requirement.

Given that the Reds has Fabio Aurelio who are injury prone and will not be features in every games. While, Jack Robinson has the potential to be a good fullback but it’s asking too much from a 17-year-old, as he still has a lot to learn on his trade.

Unless, Insua has set his sights and thoughts that his future lies away from Anfield. He should be remained at Liverpool and challenge for a place in the first team.

Liverpool’s fullbacks shortage seems to be solved

Last week, Liverpool have confirmed they have re-signed Fabio Aurelio after the defender put pen to paper on a two-year deal with the club.

The Brazilian appeared to have brought his Reds career to an end after leaving Anfield following the expiry of his contract in May. Due to Emiliano Insua set to sign for Fiorentina after both clubs has agreed on the £5million transfer fee. Liverpool are without a proper left-backs before re-signing Aurelio.

Now the press has been circulating the news regarding Insua’s move to Fiorentina has collapsed. The Italian outfit have failed to agree personal terms with Insua, with the 21-year-old’s pay demands believed to be too high for the Gigliati. If the press reports happened to be true, the Reds fullbacks issue has been solved by itself.

The Argentine defender has not left Anfield and the re-signing of the Brazilian has filled back the voids.

   "When we ascertained that he hadn't, we invited him back to Melwood so both myself and my staff, and the medical team could properly assess the player.

"We were both very impressed and I am delighted we were able to re-sign Fabio." Hodgson told after Fabio Aurelio re-signed for the Reds

However, Hodgson will continue to search for a new left-back, in case the Argentine defender is adamant to leave this summer.
