Liverpool are reportedly ready to formalise their interest in Sunderland captain Lee Cattermole, having already made tentative enquiries.

According to The Telegraph, the Reds are preparing an 'official offer' for the £10 million-rated midfielder, having already had a bid rejected for his teammate Jordan Henderson.

Liverpool are known to be keen to add a player with a combative edge to their midfield ranks, and the tenacious Cattermole appears to have been identified as the man to do so.

The 23-year-old has had his fair share of disciplinary problems in the past, but he is highly-regarded, and is understood to have an admirer in Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish.

Liverpool are also after players who could potentially have a greater sell-on value and, should Cattermole by given the opportunity to develop at the right club, many people in the know suggest England recognition will eventually come the way of the Middlesbrough Academy product.


Along with Cattermole, Liverpool have been linked with West Ham talisman Scott Parker and Rennes youngster Yann M'Vila in their pursuit of a tough-tackling midfield enforcer.

Meanwhile, the acquisition of a new left-back remains a transfer window priority for the Reds, with Newcastle defender Jose Enrique the favourite to move to Anfield.
