Liverpool are being linked with a move for Mexican international Carlos Salcido.

The PSV full back was reported to be an Anfield target last month, with new Liverpool boss Roy Hodgson keen to add depth in a fairly weak left back position.

Fulham defender Paul Konchesky is thought to be the number one target for Hodgson, who is keen to bring his former player to Merseyside.

The Reds are thought to have made a bid for fellow PSV player Ola Toivonen, with a £9 million thought to have been tabled. Salcido would make it a raid on the Phillips Stadium.

Salcido, part of Mexico's impressive World Cup side in South Africa, started his career at Guadalajara and made his debut in 2001. After five years at his native North American club, the 30 year old made his move to the Eredivisie. He's since appeared 150 times for the Dutch giants.

The News of the World reports that Hodgson has placed the full back on his shortlist as the transfer window draws to a close, and is keen to strengthen his squad in a bid to secure a top four finish this season.

Manchester City will also be challenging for a Champions League place in the current campaign, and the two sides meet at Eastlands tomorrow (Monday) evening in one of the biggest games of the season thus far.
