Following a post on his Instagram story, many people believe that Alberto Moreno could finally be leaving Anfield.
The post featured a picture of him stood with two barbers with the caption: “One more time thanks.”
Is Alberto Moreno’s time at Liverpool up? Five things to know…
- Alberto Moreno joined Liverpool for £12m after impressing in his two seasons in the Sevilla first team.
- Mostly known for his pace, Moreno showed this early in his Liverpool career with a pacey solo goal vs Tottenham.
- However, the introduction of Joe Gomez in 2015 gave him competition at left back.
- Last season, Andy Robertson then cemented himself as Liverpool’s first choice left back after Moreno picked up an injury.
- Moreno has recently been vocal about being treated unfairly by Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool.
Moreno has never really been a key player for Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool and that has been the case even more so in the last 18 months.
This can be seen even more clearly as the left-back has only made two Premier League appearances this season.
When speaking to Cadena Ser about the situation earlier in the season, Moreno said: “I do not feel good, that is the truth.
“I hurt myself giving everything for this team and I think that when I came back from injury, I deserved an opportunity.
“The situation is normal for a lot of players but simply, I did not like the way he (Klopp) treated me.
“Moving back to Spain is something I have thought about. I am in my fifth year here, there is no agreement on a renewal and in January I am free to listen to any offer.”
As it stands, no offers have been made for Moreno, however, this aforementioned Instagram post does hint that he’ll be leaving Liverpool soon:
How did the fans react?
Of course, this could just be Moreno going to get his hair cut as usual. But in the midst of a transfer window, fans will be looking for clues about incoming and outgoing transfers anywhere – especially on social media.
Moreno hasn’t been a fan favourite in his time at Anfield, so understandably, most Liverpool fans who saw this post weren’t too upset:

Since then, Moreno has continued to train and with Liverpool currently suffering an injury crisis in defence, there is every chance that he could get the first-team opportunity he has been waiting for.
Knowing this, some fans have looked to encourage him in what could be his last few weeks as a Liverpool player.
But with the 26-year-old seemingly adamant to leave the Reds, whether that’s this month or in the summer, his last trip to the barbershop will come soon.
