Manchester City and Real Madrid are set to rival Liverpool for Arsenal defender Gael Clichy, it has been claimed.

According to, the trio of clubs are preparing to pounce should Clichy reject an offer of a contract extension, with his current deal set to expire next summer.

Liverpool are said to retain a long-standing interest in the Arsenal left-back as they look to fill the problematic role at Anfield during the transfer window.

Newcastle’s Jose Enrique had been the favourite to make the summer move to Anfield, but Liverpool would reportedly favour the acquisition of Clichy, with the possibility that Arsenal may have to cash in on him at the end of the season.


Liverpool director of football Damien Comolli was instrumental in bringing the 25-year-old to Arsenal in 2003 while he worked as a scout for the Gunners.

Comolli has since maintained close links with Arsenal’s longest-serving current player, and is ready to bring him to Liverpool should the France international fail to agree a new deal.
