Liverpool are set to make a move to bring Manchester City’s Wayne Bridge to the club as Emiliano Insua’s replacement, according to reports.
Bridge’s future at Eastlands is in doubt as boss Roberto Mancini looks certain to bring Lazio left back Aleksander Kolarov to Manchester for around £17 million.
Mancini will want to keep Bridge as back up but the former England international will not want to sit on the bench all season.
New Liverpool manager Roy Hodgson is currently tracking Nice striker Loic Remy but is reportedly keen to add two left backs to his Anfield squad.
The former Fulham boss has just sold Argentine defender Insua to Fiorentina for £5 million and the Merseyside club released Fabio Aurelio on a free transfer before Hodgson was appointed.
Paul Konchesky was linked with the same move Hodgson made, from the Cottagers to Anfield, yesterday and it looks as though Hodgson wants to add another Englishman to his squad.
Hodgson has already pulled off a coup in bringing Bridge’s former Chelsea team mate Joe Cole to Liverpool on a free transfer and will be hoping the former West Ham playmaker can convince Bridge to join him.
