Aston Villa defender Luke Young has emerged as a target for Liverpool – and is weighing up whether to make a cut price £2.5 million move to Anfield.

Villa manager Martin O’Neill has confirmed he has received an offer for former England right-back Luke Young.

And sources close to the club indicate the interest in the former Charlton and Middlesbrough player is from the Reds.

Young was one of half a dozen players made available for transfer at the end of the season – if the price was right.

He was a key performer during his first campaign at Villa after making a £5 million switch from Middlesbrough during the summer of 2008. (Independent)

Yes, this would be a bargain, but would it be a move worth making? Luke Young is a solid if not spectacular signing but is he a player a side looking to break back into the top four should be making? Also, with Glen Johnson as the out and out first choice and with Jamie Carragher also able to pitch in as a full back, is he even needed?
