Liverpool must pull out another Southampton raid to solve problem area (not goalkeeper)
COMMENT By Dominic Toner
Liverpool should seriously consider a move for Southampton defender Ryan Bertrand in the summer.
The Reds are in desperate need of a new left-back in the next window as the position has been a problem area for them this season.
Jurgen Klopp has used midfielder James Milner as an emergency left-back this campaign, with Spaniard Alberto Moreno falling down the pecking order.
Liverpool need an experienced full-back that can slot straight into the starting line-up and Premier League proven Bertrand would be an excellent signing.
The 27-year-old is currently in the peak of his career and has been starting regularly at the Saints this season.

The England international has developed into a consistent performer in the Premier League during his time at Southampton and a move to Anfield could be a good next step in his career.
He does have a Champions League medal to his name from his time with Chelsea and could make an instant impact for Jurgen Klopp.
Bertrand is an athletic full-back that has shown both defensive and attacking attributes this season, with five assists to his name.
Liverpool have purchased the likes of Sadio Mane, Adam Lallana, Nathaniel Clyne and Dejan Lovren from Southampton in recent years, and should consider yet another raid on their Premier League rivals.
