Liverpool have had an enquiry for Manchester City defender Micah Richards rejected.

The England international full back has produced some impressive Barclays Premier League performances this season, and Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish is though to have been impressed by the performances.

However, SkySports reports that Liverpool only made their stunning enquiry for the player on deadline day and were rejected by the Citizens.

City boss Roberto Mancini is building a side to finish in the top four this season and challenge for the title next year, and the Italian is thought to see Richards as part of the long-term plan.

A versatile player who can also play in the centre back position, Juventus were also thought to be interested in bringing the player to Serie 'A'.


It's Liverpool who made the enquiry for the player though, and the Reds who have been the big spenders on deadline day.

After allowing Paul Konchesky to leave on loan, Fernando Torres is also set to leave Liverpool for Chelsea in a £50 million move.

Andy Carroll is immediately being drafted in as a replacement, with Liverpool spending close to to £35 million to pair the player alongside Luis Suarez at Anfield.

Richards would have bolstered the Merseysiders' defence in a position Kenny Dalglish was thought to be keen on strengthening, but Liverpool will have to look elsewhere in the summer after the rejection.
