​Liverpool could be set to renew their interest in Leeds United left back Charlie Taylor, according to reports in the ​Independent

The defender lined up against the Reds on Tuesday evening, when his Leeds side were knocked out of the EFL cup after losing 2-0 in the quarter-finals. 

Taylor has been the topic of conversation at Anfield before, most noticeably in the summer, where it was expected the 23-year-old would join Jurgen Klopp's team. 

Whilst it was understood that Taylor was keen on a potential move away from Elland Road, Leeds were able to ward of interest from a host of clubs and retain the left back's services for the current season. 

However, following an impressive display against Liverpool on Tuesday, Taylor has once again been linked with a move to Anfield as Liverpool boss, Jurgen Klopp, continues to search for a first choice left back. 

Regular full-back Alberto Moreno did feature in the win over Leeds, but has struggled to keep his place in the side, due to concerns over his defensive positioning. 


James Milner has been filling in as a makeshift left back for much of the Red's Premier League campaign and although he has proven worthy of the position, his manager is keen to find a natural defender to take the role on a permanent basis. 

Taylor will become a free agent in June 2017, after he refused to agree to an extension with Leeds last summer. 

With only seven months left on his deal, Liverpool are unlikely to make a move for the 23-year-old until next summer, where they would be able to sign the player on a free.
