Liverpool make “insistent” Rayan Ait-Nouri contact – but left-back move blocked

The left-back position is a hot topic at Liverpool currently with Kostas Tsimikas stepping in for the injured Andy Robertson, and Joe Gomez has even had to make the switch.

If Liverpool had addressed the position in the summer window, the situation may have looked different, but as it stands Jurgen Klopps options are clear.

However, if French outlet Le10sport are to be believed, Liverpool hold an interest in Wolves Ait-Nouri.

Editor-in-chief Alexis Bernard has stated that our sources indicate that the player is indeed the subject of regular and insistence contact from the Reds.

However, Wolves will block any move as they have no intention to let the left-back leave the club this January, which is not surprising as he is an ever-present in their defence.

A winter move would also be complicated by his anticipated involvement in the Africa Cup of Nations, which starts on January 13 and could rule him out of domestic action until mid-February much like Mohamed Salah.

Any interest in the French born 22-year-old, who represents Algeria, is not a shock from a Liverpool perspective as Ait-Nouri has both potential and plenty of first-team experience.

Using Squawkas comparison matrix, Ait-Nouri compares very favourably to Tsimikas defensively.
