Liverpool misfit to become subject of Sunderland bid

Taking advantage of the player’s recent lack of involvement in the Liverpool first team, Sunderland are ready to offer £3m for the services of Fabio Aurelio.

The Brazilian could barely be said to have featured at all this term, having only made one FA Cup appearance all season.

It’s no surprise that the Brazilian has seen so little football with summer signing, Jose Enrique, to compete with for the left-back spot.

However at such a low asking price, the Black Cats manager could be on to a bargain as he looks to bulk up what is quite a shallow Sunderland squad.

The Black Cats have been short-handed at the back in recent weeks, even being forced to deploy Jack Colback in the role at times.

The news is encouraged even further when we hear that Arsenal are considering a move for Kieran Richardson to fill their defensive void.

Injuries to Andre Santos and the ongoing recovery of Kieran Gibbs mean that the Gunners are without a recognised left-back, and are sadi to be looking at Richardson as reinforcements.

Aurelio has shown in the past that he has the potential to perform well on a Premier League level, and has been unfortunate to find himself on the outskirts of the Merseysiders squad.

At £3m, O’ Neill is sure to face competition for the signature of the 29 year-old as he seeks to find a new starting left-back.
