Liverpool join Chelsea in Krasic loan race


Liverpool have joined Chelsea in the race to sign Serbian international playmaker Milos Krasic, according to reports.

The highly-rated 27-year-old is thought to be available this month, with Juventus boss Antonio Conte leaving the attacking midfielder out in the cold in Turin.

And now, The Daily Mirror reports that Reds boss Kenny Dalglish is keen on bringing the player to England, potentially in a loan deal until the end of the season.

Inter Milan and Fenerbache are also credited with an interested in the player, who moved to Italy from Russian giants CSKA Moscow in 2010 for £14 million.

Blues boss Andre Villas-Boas has been credited with a strong interest in Krasic in recent months, with The Guardian reporting at the end of December that he was likely to move to Stamford Bridge before Gary Cahill.

The England international has since completed his deal to west London, but Krasic's future remains much less clear.

Liverpool will now be hoping they can persuade the player to make an Anfield move in the closing stages of the transfer window, in a move which would bolster the attacking prowess of the Merseysiders after a 3-1 defeat at Bolton on Saturday.
