The latest odds on Alberto Moreno’s next destination suggest that Arsenal are the favourites to clinch a deal for the soon-to-be free agent defender.
Robertson ousts Moreno
Spanish stopper Moreno slipped majorly down the pecking order at Liverpool over the last couple of seasons, following the rise to prominence of fellow left-back Andy Robertson.
The latter’s incredible engine, wand of a left foot and, most importantly, defensive solidity have seen Robertson develop into of the Premier League’s finest full-backs.
As such, Moreno, widely-recognised for his lack of positional awareness and penchant for high-profile mistakes, has found himself largely left out in the cold.
This past season, the Spaniard managed just 5 appearances across all competitions. In addition, just 2 of these showings came in the Premier League, during busy periods when Jurgen Klopp was forced to rest first-choice Robertson.
Moreno on the move
As such, it came as little surprise when, on the back of Liverpool’s Champions League triumph in Madrid last week, Moreno was named as one of two high-profile Reds’ first-team players not to have their contracts renewed (along with Danny Sturridge):

The Spaniard is, therefore, set to become a free agent upon the expiration of his contract at Anfield on July 1st.

As per the latest odds this evening, however, it is in fact one of Liverpool’s Premier League rivals who are currently leading the race to clinch Moreno’s signature.
The outfit in question are Arsenal.
The Gunners are expected to be on the lookout for reinforcements at left-back this summer, with Nacho Monreal now 33 and Sead Kolasinac being persistently-linked with a move to Barcelona.
And, if BetVictor‘s latest odds prove accurate, then Moreno looks set to be the left-sided addition whom Unai Emery opts for, with the north Londoners currently clear favourites to seal a deal for the stopper:
🏴 Arsenal – 4/1
🇮🇹 Lazio – 12/1
🇪🇸 Barcelona – 16/1
