Copenhagen defender Oscar Wendt is a summer transfer target for Liverpool reports talkSPORT.
Reports in Sweden claim the 25-year-old international left-back currently tops the list of proposed replacements for Kenny Dalglish’s well known problem position after a series of impressive performances in the Champions League this season.
Wendt has also earned rave reviews in the Danish Superliga which has attracted the attention of other European heavyweights Bayern Munich and Barcelona, but Liverpool remain optimistic of bringing the player to Anfield.
The super Swede is available on a free transfer at the end of the current campaign when his Copenhagen contract expires, and as a result Wendt is free to sign a pre-contract agreement with any club he wishes.
Since the sacking of Roy Hodgson, summer signing Paul Konchesky has been loaned out to Nottingham Forest – deemed not good enough for the Reds moving forward, leaving England international Glenn Johnson to fill in as a makeshift left-back.
Jose Enrique and Fabio Coentrao have both been linked with a move to Liverpool, and the Anfield chief appears certain to add a player in this position when the transfer window reopens in the summer.
After spending big in the January transfer window, Liverpool owners NESV are prepared to continue backing the club financially in a bid to return the Merseysiders to their former glories and are set to invest again on player additions at Anfield at the earliest opportunity.
Sport.co.uk claim that Jakob Friis-Hansen, the former Head Scout at Liverpool ran the rule over Wendt and has confirmed the club are making attempts to sign the defender on a Bosman transfer in the summer.
