Since the beginning of November, Jordan Amavi has started only one match in the league for Marseille as Rudi Garcia has tried several players in the left-back position.

This includes Hiroki Sakai, who will represent Japan at the Asian Cup of Nations.

The Ligue 1 outfit are actively searching for a new defender in the winter market and according to French newspaper L’Equipe, Les Phocéens listed several targets and this includes Alberto Moreno of Liverpool.

The Spaniard’s current deal with the Merseyside club will run out at the end of the season and an Anfield exit is looking increasingly likely.

Knowing the 26-year-old will be a free agent next summer, he is ‘already being courted’ by clubs, his former side Sevilla in particular. 

If Moreno decides to rejoin the La Liga side, it will be easy for him to return to his previous clubs since both of them know each other.

For this reason, ‘nothing will be easy’ for Marseille to sign the fullback from Jurgen Klopp’s side in January, although it’s certainly something they’re considering.
