Liverpool have made an early approach for Bordeaux left-back Benoit Tremoulinas as they continue to look for replacements for Paul Konchesky, according to reports in France.
Tremoulinas has risen through the ranks at the French side and is one of many highly rated talents at Stade Chaban Delmas.
The 24-year-old has been one of the outstanding performers of the season so far in Ligue 1 and many believe he is the heir apparent to Bixente Lizarazu, despite not having won a cap for his country as of yet.
Liverpool manager Roy Hodgson took Paul Konchesky with him to Anfield after leaving former club Fulham but the former West Ham ace has failed to impress thus far.
With a lack of left backs when Hodgson took the Liverpool hot seat – Emiliano Insua had been sold and Fabio Aurelio released – he decided Konchesky was the best man for the job, as well as re-signing Brazilian Aurelio.
However, the Anfield faithful have been less than impressed with ‘Konch’ and Hodgson is preparing to cut his losses and bring in a younger player with a bright future.
And Tremoulinas could be that man, with Liverpool’s director of football strategy Damian Comolli having great contacts in France, and the club have now enquired as to the player’s availability.
