Paul Konchesky’s time at Liverpool looks to be over as Sven Goran Eriksson has targeted the 30-year-old as his next addition at Leicester City.

Konchesky was brought in by the short lived Liverpool manager Roy Hodgson, but has since found his opportunities limited under new manager Kenny Dalglish. 

Now the left-back looks set to leave Anfield permanently after just one season and 15 appearances, with Eriksson reportedly set to launch a £1.5 million bid for the player. 

Liverpool are thought to be in the market for a left-back this summer with Gael Clichy confirming he turned down the opportunity to replace Konckesky on Merseyside in favour of a move to Manchester City.



Dalglish’s side have also been linked with moves for Newcastle’s Jose Enrique and Everton’s Leighton Baines in the British media, with the Reds boss actively looking to spend in the position with the backing of owners FSG.

The left-back position was problematic for Liverpool last season, with Dalglish forced to play Glen Johnson out of position at times while Konchesky went out on loan to Nottingham Forest.

Even without a readied replacement at Anfield, Konchesky has reportedly been told he can go in the transfer window, with the Scot confident he can secure one of Liverpool's targets in the position.

The former Fulham man is apparently willing to take a pay-cut out of his £40,000-a-week wages in order to seal a move to the Foxes, who have already spent big this summer and look to be a force in the Npower Championship next summer.
