Liverpool set sights on £8m Chelsea star

Liverpool are back in for Chelsea defender Ryan Bertrand, according to reports.

The Daily Mail claims Reds boss Brendan Rodgers is keen on the player, having worked with him previously during his time with the Blues' reserve team.

Bertrand was linked with a move to Liverpool last month, with The Daily Express claiming Rodgers was ready to test the resolve of his old club with an £8million offer.

A two-cap international with England, the versatile full-back has found chances hard to come by following the arrival of Jose Mourinho at Chelsea.

Indeed, the 24-year-old - who can also play in left midfield - has featured just three times in all competitions so far for the Blues this season.

He's also found himself outside of the first team squad on a number of occasions, with Ashley Cole taking the place on the bench behind Cesar Azpilicueta in the Chelsea first team.

Liverpool, meanwhile, have been limited with options at left back after Jose Enrique picked up an injury earlier in the campaign.

Young John Flanagan has found himself in the first team, and isn't the only youth team graduate in the first team mix at Anfield.

Bertrand might well get a chance if he were to move to Liverpool, but it's unclear whether his parent club will allow him to move to a Premier League title rival.
