Liverpool are preparing a cut-price deal for Shaun Wright-Phillips after Manchester City put him up for sale in the January transfer window, according to The Sun.

Wright-Phillips joined City for his second spell in 2008 for £8.5 million but has fallen out of favour with current manager Roberto Mancini and the club are willing to take almost half of that amount.

The 28-year-old has been priced at £5 million and Liverpool gaffer Roy Hodgson will be alerted to the cheap price tag put on the winger.

Liverpool are on the look out for a few bargains this summer, despite new owner John W Henry’s insistence the club will bring a ‘world class player’ to Anfield.

The American also admitted that if Hodgson wanted to bring in more players, they would have to be sensible signings – meaning Wright-Phillips could be the type of player Liverpool will go for.

The England international is one of six Manchester City players put up for sale as the Eastlands club prepare for losses of up to £50 million.

The other players are Shay Given – the only one City want to re-coup what they paid for – Emmanuel Adebayor, Jo, Roque Santa Cruz and Wayne Bridge.
