Dalglish 'makes scouting trip' to evaluate £15m defender - reports

Published Add your comment

Liverpool are reportedly contemplating making a summer move for Blackburn defender Phil Jones.

Manchester United are also chasing the 19-year-old, reports The Sun, but their north west rivals appear to be ready to formalise their interest when the transfer window opens at the end of the season.

According to The Times, interim Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish was at Ewood Park on Monday to monitor the young centre-back as Rovers ultimately lost 1-0 to Manchester City.

It has also been reported that Liverpool director of football Damien Comolli was beside Dalglish and the pair have since held discussions regarding the potential acquisition of Jones, should Dalglish be handed the reins at Anfield on a permanent basis, as expected.


Various sources today claim that Blackburn will demand £15 million should Liverpool make an enquiry, but are likely to settle for £10 million if they drop out of the Barclays Premier League.

Liverpool are also thought to be chasing Bolton centre-back Gary Cahill and Paris Saint-Germain stopper Mamadou Sakho as they look to bring defensive reinforcements to Anfield.
