Kenny Dalglish will look to convince Roberto Mancini to part with Man City defender Micah Richards. The England international has made it clear to his manager that he will look to leave the club after not being guaranteed first team football as he believes that the lack of regular football is harming his chances of a regular spot in Fabio Capello’s international set up.
Liverpool are looking to bring defensive additions to the club after seeing their back four concede far too many soft goals this season. The Anfield club has already conceded as many goals this season than they let in during the entire 2009/10 campaign.
22 year old Richards has started less than half of Man City’s Premier League matches this season and the adaptable defender is being targeted by many clubs with the likes of Tottenham and Arsenal said to be interested, however Mancini is unlikely to sell the Birmingham born youngster to either London side as they are direct rivals for a top four spot.
The £12m rated defender can perform effectively both at right back and in the centre of defence and would surely be interest in a move to a club that has now removed Roy Hodgson as boss and would hope that the appointment of Liverpool legend Kenny Dalglish as caretaker boss would act as a fillip that could see the club reverse their dramatic slide down the table.
