Liverpool are reportedly ready to move for Stephen Warnock as Paul Konchesky heads for the Anfield exit.
According to skysports.com, Konchesky is in talks with his former club Fulham over a move back to Craven Cottage just five months after leaving the club.
The 29-year-old was signed by Roy Hodgson - who endured an even more brief spell at Liverpool - for £4 million in August but has failed to win over the Anfield faithful.
He has player only a handful of times this season and appears to have fallen further down the pecking order since Kenny Dalglish was named Liverpool's interim manager.
It would now appear he is set to end his Anfield nightmare - and Liverpool have reportedly already lined up a surprise replacement to fill the left-back position.
Goal.com reports that the Reds have set their sights on Liverpool Academy graduate Warnock, who left Anfield in 2007 after 11 years at the club.
A move for the 29-year-old Aston Villa defender would come as a surprise for many Liverpool fans but, with Glen Johnson currently playing out of position on the left for the Merseysiders, they could do with bringing an experienced full back to Anfield before the transfer window closes.
