Liverpool face fight to sign World Cup ace

Published Add your comment

Fulham are reportedly preparing a bid for Liverpool target Carlos Salcido.

Birmingham are also believed to be in the running to sign the Mexican defender, who is supposedly available for 3 million euros from PSV Eindhoven.

Last week, Salcido confirmed that there is interest in his signature from the Premier League. He said: "There are some new teams interested. For now I am calm, although I know that my name has been mentioned by several clubs in England."

Roy Hodgson is believed to be desperate to fill his problematic left-back slot after he was forced to play Daniel Agger - primarily a central defender - in the wide defensive berth for each of Liverpool's league matches so far this campaign.

The Liverpool boss is understood to be on the verge of signing Fulham's Paul Konchesky to solve his problem, which would pave the way for the Cottagers to make a move for Salcido to replace their departing full-back.

And Sky Sports reports that Mark Hughes has earmarked the 30-year-old to fill the void left by Konchesky should he move to Anfield.

Salcido has represented his country 77 times, and was one of their star turns at the World Cup earlier this summer.
