Liverpool boss Roy Hodgson is lining up a £5million bid for Stoke defender Robert Huth.
Hodgson will test Stoke’s resolve to keep Germany international Huth with an offer in the New Year as he bids to solve a defensive crisis.
Liverpool will be without Jamie Carragher until February while Daniel Agger has struggled for most of the season with a calf problem.
And Huth – who is nicknamed the Berlin Wall – will be targeted to strengthen the foundations of Hodgson’s back line.
The 26-year-old has impressed at the Britannia Stadium since a £6m move from Middlesbrough last year.

Robert Huth is one of those players who gets a fair bit of stick for no real good reason. The former Chelsea man is not an experienced campaigner who is a very useful centre back who does all the basic things consistently well. He has great heart and good stamina and it is not a great surprise that clubs are after the German international.
Roy Hodgson is looking at ways to improve his squad that don’t break the bank and a move for the Stoke City centre back is an intelligent one but it will be very hard to convince Tony Pulis to sell the 26 year old.
The Liverpool boss is looking to strengthen his back line and given that the likes of Jamie Carragher and Sotiros Kyrgiakos are both the wrong side of 30 and that Hodgson doesn’t appear to value Daniel Agger too highly, there is clearly then a need to consider bringing in reinforcements and in many ways a player like Robert Huth could be an idea long term replacement for Carragher.
