Kolo Toure could be on his way out of Anfield, with Turkish side Trabzonspor looking to bring in the Ivory Coast defender.

Toure joined the Reds at the beginning of last season when out of contract with former club Manchester City, but failed to become a regular in the Liverpool defence, starting just 15 games all season for Brendan Rodgers' side.

Lovren interest

With the Reds set to move for Southampton defender Dejan Lovren, the centre back could be sold in order to gain funds to sign the Croatian international, who is priced in the region of £20million.

The Daily Mail claims that Trabzonspor could be his next destination, with just one-year left on his current contract at Anfield.

Toure, 33, struggled at times last season and his campaign will be remembered for gifting former Everton striker Victor Anichebe an equaliser when away to West Bromwich Albion in the league. 


With the Reds looking to bring in Lovren and Tiago Illori coming back from his season-long loan move at Granada, the Ivorian could find himself sixth in the pecking order to play centre-back if he does stay.

Daniel Agger, Martin Skrtel and Mamadou Sakho are also in contention for starting places at Anfield.

First team football

Toure would likely leave Liverpool for a small fee, given his age and contract situation, and it would also offer the player a chance of first-team football if he were to move to Turkey.
