Liverpool are to make a £15 million bid for Newcastle defender Jose Enrique, according to reports.

The Spanish left back has been in impressive Barclays Premier League form this season, with reports circulating in January that the Reds had targeted the 25-year-old.

Now, the Daily Star claims Liverpool will launch a £15 million for the player in the summer, four years after former boss Rafael Benitez tried to bring the player to Anfield.

A long-term replacement for Paul Konchesky is always thought to have been Kenny Dalglish's main transfer priority on Merseyside, with a handful of players in the position across Europe linked with the club.

Taye Taiwo, Fabio Coentrao and Oscar Wendt are just three names to have been mentioned with Liverpool in recent weeks, although Enrique is thought to be the top target after Damien Comolli made personal scouting trips to watch the player.

The French director of football at Anfield is working alongside Dalglish in drawing up summer transfer targets for the club, with a winger and central midfielder also thought to be on the Liverpool agenda.

With the club making a reported approach for Fiorentina wideman Juan Manuel Vargas yesterday, the Reds' transfer policy appears to be coming to fruition already with over a month remaining in the current campaign.

The national paper goes on to claim that Liverpool could look to push through a deal for Jose Enrique, signed by the Toon back in 2007 for £6.3 million, in order to avoid a transfer tussle with Serie 'A' giants AC Milan.
