Liverpool are facing competition from Tottenham in the bid to sign Aston Villa goalkeeper Brad Friedel, it is understood.

Press Association Sport understands Friedel has emerged as a target for Spurs manager Harry Redknapp, who is looking for a new goalkeeper after the up and down form of Heurelho Gomes last season.

It is a difficult decision for the 39-year-old Friedel, who is now out of contract at Villa although they are also keen to retain his services.

Friedel is only likely to be offered a one-year deal by Redknapp, who will seek a long term replacement for Gomes, but there is the lure of being first choice.

He is keen to add to his all-time record of 275 successive appearances in the Barclays Premier League.

Liverpool are offering a two-year contract - and a coaching role - but Friedel, who lives in Cheshire, will only be number two to Pepe Reina.

West Brom are also interested but they are well down the pecking order with Friedel.
