Liverpool chasing Uruguayan centre-half.
Liverpool are chasing unwanted PSG centre-half Diego Lugano but will face competition from Bayern Munich for the Uruguayan’s signature, according to German website 4-4-2.
Lugano joined the mega-rich Ligue 1 outfit from Fenerbahce in summer 2011 but struggled in his first season in Paris with form and fitness, making just 12 appearances for Carlo Ancelloti’s side.
The arrival of £32m Brazilian centre-half Thiago Silva from AC Milan has further marginalised the 31-year-old this term, and Lugano will now seek an exit in the January transfer window.
Liverpool and Bayern Munich are both thought to be tracking Lugano, who has a contract until 2014 but is available for as little as £4m.
The uncomprimising defender was considered one of the best centre-backs in the world not long ago, after a fabulous World Cup in 2010 as captain of semi-finalists Uruguay.
But the move to PSG has not worked out and the club’s petrodollars mean he has been sidelined in favour of more glamourous names.
