Liverpool caretaker manager is set to seal a move for Benfica left back Fabio Coentrao as his first signing in January, according to reports.

The new Reds boss wants to bring in a replacement for Paul Konchesky, one of Roy Hodgson’s high-profile flops, to improve their defence.

Alongisde Damian Comolli, Dalglish has amended Liverpool’s January transfer wishlist, which now includes Ryan Shawcross and Ricky van Wolfswinkel at the top.

Coentrao is one of the best full backs around and would be a significant coup for Liverpool and possibly signal signs of better things to come for the remainder of the season.

Dalglish knows he needs to bring a number of new signings into Anfield this month if he is to drag Lievrpool out of trouble and a treble swoop would be a good way to announce himself.

The Portuguese was thought to have agreed a move to Chelsea to eventually become Ashley Cole’s replacement at Stamford Bridge last month but those reports seem to have been false.

Cole has been linked with a move to Real Madrid this season so Coentrao was thought to be a target for Carlo Ancelotti but the England international has stayed loyal to Chelsea and looks set to see the season out with them.

And, with Chelsea deciding not to pursue Coentrao, Liverpool are set to swoop for a player who was looking forward to playing in the Barclays Premier League.
