Liverpool plan January bid for Portuguese defender - reports

Published Add your comment

Liverpool are reportedly considering a January offer for Zenit St Petersburg defender Bruno Alves.

According to TMW, the Reds could make a bid for the Portugal international in the New Year in pursuit of defensive reinforcements.

An imposing centre-back, Alves has 39 appearances for his country and joined Zenit from Porto for €22 million in August 2010.

Liverpool, though, are said to be keen to bring the 29-year-old to Anfield as Kenny Dalglish makes plans for the transfer window.

The Liverpool boss is reported to be keen to further bolster his defence when the opportunity arrives, both centrally and at full-back.

Dalglish already has Jamie Carragher, Martin Skrtel, Daniel Agger and Sebastian Coates available in the centre of defence, and Alves would only add to an already impressive unit.

Forward reinforcements are also thought to be on the agenda for the Reds, and reports in Spain have claimed Liverpool could make a sensational bid for David Villa.
