Liverpool plot shock summer Arsenal raid

Published Add your comment

Liverpool's quest to find a new left-back could lead them to Arsenal's Armand Traore, reports claim.

The 21-year-old is currently on loan at Juventus for the remainder of the campaign and - having previously spent a similar spell with Portsmouth - speculation continues to mount that he does not have a future at the Emirates Stadium.

Now, according to, Liverpool are interested in signing the Frenchman as they look to solve their full-back crisis in the summer.

Traore joined Arsenal from Monaco in 2006 but has struggled to make a lasting impression in north London and could now be set to leave the club, should the reported interest of Liverpool be genuine.

The acquisition of a new left-back remains a priority for Liverpool and - along with Traore - they have been linked with a number of players who could potentially fill the problematic position.


Paul Konchesky was brought in by the previous Liverpool regime last August but was subsequently loaned out to Nottingham Forest after failing to make a lasting impression at Anfield, while Fabio Aurelio appears to be out-of-favour with Dalglish.

The Liverpool boss is instead persisting with Glen Johnson - naturally a right-sided player - at left-back but a more long-term solution is expected to be bought when the transfer window reopens.

This search appears to be nearing a conclusion if reports are to be believed after talkSPORT alleged Newcastle's Jose Enrique is poised to seal a switch to Liverpool in the summer after the two clubs agreed a fee in the region of £6 million.
