Liverpool 'make enquiries' for out-of-favour £8m Premier League defender

Published Add your comment

Liverpool are being linked with a January move for Croatian international defender Vedran Corluka.

The Spurs defender, who can play in the centre back and full back position, has fallen out of favour at White Hart Lane, and Liverpool boss Roy Hodgson has reportedly taken an interest in the player.

Serie 'A' side Juventus are also believed to be keen on the 24-year-old, according to the Daily Mail, although it's Liverpool who have made an enquiry according to the paper.

Director of Football strategy at Anfield, Damien Comolli, signed the player for Tottenham back in 2008, and is still thought to hold Corluka in high regard. Heavily involved in transfer activity at Liverpool, Comolli is likely to sanction a move for the player this month.

Hodgson is reportedly fighting for his job at Liverpool, but the former Fulham chief has been promised a transfer kitty in the region of £35 million as he looks to bolster the squad this month.

'Five or six' players are believed to be on a shortlist of transfer targets, and whilst an attacking foil for Fernando Torres is seen as the priority, a versatile defender is also seen as a good option for Liverpool.

The form of Glen Johnson is also a concern on Merseyside, and with the England international being linked with a move away from the club, signing Corluka could become a higher priority for the club.

Per Mertesacker, Robert Huth and Davide Santon have all been linked with a move to Liverpool in recent weeks, and a move now appears likely for at least one of the targets.
