Liverpool 'encouraged' to swoop for €15m Croatia star

Published Add your comment

Liverpool are reportedly on the verge of making a move for Tottenham defender Vedran Corluka.

The Croatia international - valued at €15 million by - has fallen down the pecking order at White Hart Lane and, according to the Daily Mail, has his sights set on a move during the transfer window.

Liverpool are thought to be tracking the 24-year-old and now - reports tribalfootball - the Anfield club are being 'encouraged' to launch a bid for Corluka's services.

The former Manchester City player is a versatile defender - able to perform equally competently at right-back or centre-back and, with constant injuries to the Liverpool defence, the acquisition of Corluka could prove to be a shrewd one.

Liverpool are thought to be in a strong position to land the Croatian thanks to director of football strategy Damien Comolli, who signed Corluka in 2008 while occupying a similar role with Spurs.

Whether a move for Corluka comes to fruition remains to be seen, but Liverpool are believed to be in the market for defensive reinforcements in January.

Liverpool have had their fair share of defensive woes of late after were hit with the news that Anfield stalwart Jamie Carragher would be out of action for three months after dislocating his shoulder against Spurs in November.

Centre-back Daniel Agger also reportedly wants out of Anfield so Liverpool could do well to bring in at least one defender during the transfer window.
