Liverpool make free Konchesky replacement 'top target'

Published Add your comment

Liverpool are reportedly in the race to sign Copenhagen defender Oscar Wendt.

The Swedish international left back has been earning rave reviews for his performances in both the Danish Superliga and Champions League, leading to speculation that Kenny Dalglish is keen on bringing the player to Liverpool.

Reports in Sweden claim the 25-year-old has emerged as the top Liverpool target, with the Merseysiders keen to land a long-term replacement for Paul Konchesky, who is currently out on loan at Nottingham Forest.

Glen Johnson has filled in at the position admirably, but the England international is not seen as the long term option and has recently returned to his more comfortable right hand position.

Bayern Munich and Barcelona are also thought to be keen on signing the player in the summer, who will be available for a free transfer at the end of the season.

Liverpool are leading the charge from the Barclays Premier League though, with talkSPORT reporting that 'King Kenny' is in the market for a player in the problem position.


The Anfield chief has hinted at additional summer additions after spending big on striker in January, and is set to invest again on player additions at Liverpool at the first opportunity.

Jose Enrique and Fabio Coentrao have both been linked with a move to the Reds, and the Liverpool boss appears certain to add a player in this position specifically.
