Liverpool manager Roy Hodgson wants to raid former club for midfielder Simon Davies, according to the Metro.

Davies was a key player in Hodgson’s Fulham side that shocked everybody by reaching the Europa League final and the pair worked together for two years prior to that.

It seems only a matter of time before a second Cottager makes the move to Anfield, after Paul Konchesky did similar in the summer.

Damian Comolli has been brought in by Liverpool’s new owners to work alongside Hodgson in the transfer market and the pair have drawn up a shortlist of targets for January.

Comolli has insisted John W Henry is willing to fund the signing of a ‘world class player’ in the upcoming transfer window and most of the Frenchman’s scouting work has been done on the continent.

Comolli and Hodgson have been in France a lot watching the likes of Yann M’Vila, Eden Hazard and Gervinho as the search widens.

However, Liverpool fans will also be aware their club cannot solely afford to bring £20 million players to the club and some bargains will have to be found.

That is where Hodgson comes in and he will be looking for experienced Premier League players he can bring in on the cheap – and Davies fits that bill despite the fact that he penned a new deal recently that will keep him in Wrest London until 2013.
