Liverpool left-back Paul Konchesky has emerged as a summer transfer target for Wolves according to The Sun.

Mick McCarthy has pinpointed the 30-year-old defender as the man he wants to bring to Molineux to provide competition for George Elokobi.

Konchesky is set for the Anfield exit after Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish deemed him surplus to requirements on Merseyside.

The Reds boss has made no secret of his desire to strengthen in what is regarded as a problem position at Liverpool, with club director of football Damien Comolli tasked with finding relevant cover.

Having already splashed out on the £20million signing of Jordan Henderson from Sunderland, Liverpool owners Fenway Sports Group look set to continue their financial backing in a bid to improve the playing squad at Anfield with a view to returning the once prestigious club to its former glories.


McCarthy is looking to capitalise on the cull of fringe players at Liverpool, with Konchesky thought to be available for a fraction of the £3.5million price that the Reds paid Fulham for his services last summer.

Wolves may face competition for his signature from Championship outfit Portsmouth – who are looking to agree a season-long loan move for Konchesky.

But Liverpool would prefer to negotiate a full transfer in an attempt to get him off the wage bill, so that further resources are made available for future Anfield arrivals.
