Liverpool target 'holds serious talks' over summer move

Reported Liverpool target Oscar Wendt has revealed he is in talks with a number of clubs over a potential summer move.

The FC Copenhagen full-back is expected to leave the Parken Stadium on a free transfer at the end of the season and is being pursued by a number of interest parties.

Wendt has been linked with Liverpool on several occasions over the past few months but it is not clear whether the Anfield club have entered into discussions with the 25-year-old and his representatives.

One club, however, that has commenced a dialogue with the Sweden international is Sporting Lisbon and, despite the interest from the Portuguese club, Wendt remains open to a move elsewhere.

"Sporting are one of the clubs we are talking to, then we have decided to not name the others," Wendt told Sportbladet.

"But my agent has serious talks with them. Nothing is decided, but I am not stressed about it."

"I want to find a club which feels right."


 

The interest of Liverpool in the defender had previously been confirmed by the Reds' scout for Scandinavia - Jakob Friis-Hansen - who had been dispatched to view Wendt at close quarters.

"We are keeping a good eye on Oscar…Oscar Wendt does a great job, but he must play at a high level every week," Friis-Hansen said. "In Denmark there are just a few high-quality games."

Wendt is one of several left-backs Liverpool are monitoring as they look to find a permanent solution for the problematic role in the summer.

The departure of Paul Konchesky - albeit temporarily - from Anfield has left Liverpool short on options at full-back and the acquisition of reinforcements remains a priority for the Merseyside club.

Glen Johnson has been deployed on the left by Kenny Dalglish of late, but the Liverpool boss is after a more long-term solution, with Newcastle defender Jose Enrique and Celtic's Emilio Izaguirre seemingly favourites to move to Anfield.
