Liverpool are reportedly prepared to go toe-to-toe with AC Milan in pursuit of Newcastle defender Jose Enrique.

According to the Sunday Mirror, Milan are confident they can land the Spaniard with the lure of Champions League football, but Liverpool are ready to ‘hijack’ the Italian giants’ swoop for the 25-year-old.

It was initially reported by talkSPORT that Liverpool were set to complete a deal for Enrique when the summer transfer window reopens, but it now appears they will have their work cut out to land the highly-rated full-back.

Liverpool are known to be in the market for a permanent fixture at left-back, with the Anfield club relatively light in that area at the present time.


The departure of Paul Konchesky - albeit temporarily - from Anfield has left Liverpool short on options at full-back and the acquisition of reinforcements remains a priority for the Merseyside club.

Glen Johnson has been deployed on the left by Kenny Dalglish of late, but the Liverpool boss is after a more long-term solution and a host of potential signings have been linked with the seemingly problematic role.

Liverpool are also allegedly after Celtic's Emilio Izaguirre and former Kop favourite John Arne Riise, and the signing of recognised full-back is high on the Reds’ summer to do list.
