Anfield boss plans to continue summer spending and could fill problem area with more for San Siro star.
Liverpool remain interested in Inter Milan defender Cristian Chivu.
Reds boss Kenny Dalglish has been recommended Chivu as he seeks a new left-back signing.
Chivu, this week, has rejected an approach from Valencia, but remains undecided about staying at Inter.
Liverpool are keen, but want Chivu to drop his personal demands to make the move to Anfield.
Clearly Liverpool are still very much in the hunt for a left back and with moves to sign Jose Enrique from Newcastle United seemingly hitting the buffers and Gael Clichy opting to make the move to Man City a move for the hugely experienced Romanian international may be a wise one, especially as he could be available for as little as £6m as the 30 year old has just one year left on his current San Siro deal.
Chivu is well known for being a strong tackler and clearly has a reputation for his suspect temperament, however the Inter Milan man is an adaptable talent who could serve Liverpool well at centre back or even as defensive midfielder if needed.
After eight years in Italy with Roma and Inter Milan Chivu is apparently open to the idea of a move to the Premier League but will apparently demand a fairly large pay packet to make such a move. Kenny Dalglish would however be getting a very talented player for a relatively small fee and therefore that could offset the likely high wage demands.
Chivu is a triple Serie A title winner as well as having a Champions League triumph to his bow and has racked up 130 appearances during his four seasons at Inter Milan, prior to his time in Italy he was also a big success in Holland where he captained Ajax to a domestic double in 2001/02.
Liverpool used a number of options at left back with the likes of Paul Konchesky and Fabio Aurelio failing to make the starting spot their own and Glen Johnson and Danny Wilson being forced to play out of position to occasionally fill the gap.
Dalglish has already splashed the cash on Jordan Henderson and Charlie Adam this summer and the club’s new owners also forked out big money for strikers Luis Suarez and Andy Carroll in January so a move for the Inter Milan man may well fit in well with the squad re-building.
Whilst clearly Chivu at 30 is no spring chicken he could be a reliable first choice starter for a season or two whilst young up and coming talent Jack Robinson continues his progression at Anfield.
