Damien Comolli has personally led a convoy with two scouts to watch Fabricio Coloccini in action, according to the Daily Mirror, with the Argentine high on Liverpool’s transfer wish list for January.

Kenny Dalgilsh has already purchased Andy Carroll and Jose Enrique from Newcastle, and with Enrique’s connections to Coloccini, Dalglish and Comolli are both said to be hoping that a deal can go through in the next transfer window.


Alan Pardew has admitted that Coloccini has stalled on contract talks with the Toon, and Liverpool are closely monitoring the situation. And with Jamie Carragher pushing the other side of 30, Comolli is hoping to find a back up defender to add depth to the Reds’ squad.

Pardew won’t let Coloccini go to Liverpool on the cheap, with the Newcastle manager most likely demanding a ‘big fee’ for the star, the paper claims.

And with Coloccini’s experience in the Barclays Premier League, the 29-year-old could move into the Liverpool squad very quickly, and play off Carroll and Enrique, with whom he already has chemistry on the field.
