Liverpool prepare €15 million bid for Carragher replacement

Published Add your comment

Liverpool are reportedly preparing a January bid for French international defender Adil Rami.

The Reds have been linked with a string of defenders, and an injury sustaied by stalwart Jamie Carragher over the weekend is thought to have made Roy Hodgson's search more desperate.

Rami has been on the Anfield radar for several weeks now after Liverpool scouts went to watch Lille earlier in the month, and Hodgson took a closer look at the player during an international match against England at Wembley in November.

The 24-year-old centre back has impressed in Ligue 1 after making his debut in 2007, and a good start to the current campaign has led to several European clubs monitoring the player. Liverpool have been the most high-profile though.

Hodgson has been linked with Gary Cahill and Mamadou Sakho as his search for a centre back intensifies, and the Liverpool boss is thought to have a wish list of 'five or six' players on Merseyside.

While an attacking foil for Fernando Torres was thought to be the priority for the former Fulham boss, defensive reinforcements could now be the most important acquisition at Liverpool.

The Independent reports that Rami is the best option for Liverpool due to his physique and style suiting the Premier League, but Liverpool will have to pay in the region of €15 million to secure his services.
