Joey Barton's failure to sign a new contract at Newcastle has alerted the attention of Liverpool according to

The 28-year-old Magpies midfielder has been the standout performer at St James' Park this season, so much so that Newcastle manager Alan Pardew is keen to tie his star player to a new long-term deal in order to ward off interest from a number of potential suitors.

Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish is thought to be drawing up a list of summer transfer targets at Anfield, and with Barton entering the final twelve months of his contract this summer, he is an attractive proposition for the Reds, and could be available to Liverpool in a cut-price deal.


A move for the controversial Newcastle man would also see him link up with his former teammate and new Kop strike sensation Andy Carroll – who joined Liverpool for a club record £35million in the recent January transfer window.

The pair enjoyed a fruitful relationship in their time together on Tyneside, with Barton providing eight of Carroll's Newcastle goals this season prior to his move from St James' Park to Anfield.

And Dalglish could look to reunite the partnership ahead of next season, as the Reds manager looks to add to his wide options on Merseyside, and further improve the creativity in the Liverpool midfield.
