Anfield boss prepares for busy summer.
Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish will be handed substantial funds by the club’s owners this summer and the Anfield boss plans to make moves for three Premier League targets. Newcastle United full back Jose Enrique, Tottenham playmaker Niko Kranjcar and Bolton centre back Gary Cahill are all on the Merseyside club’s wish-list.
Liverpool are looking for a left back to fill what has become something of a problem position and Dalglish hopes to lure Spaniard Jose Enrique to the club but may have to battle AC Milan for the 25 year old who has decided to keep talk of a new Magpies deal until the end of the season, leaving many to conclude the former Villarreal man may be ready to leave the St James’ Park club.
With two of his centre back contingent, Sotirios Kyrgiakos and Jamie Carragher, over 30 years of age and with Daniel Agger having injury concerns, Liverpool are looking to bring England international Gary Cahill to beef up the club’s defensive options. The consistent Trotters defender is also wanted by both Tottenham and Arsenal and Owen Coyle has reportedly placed a slightly inflated £25m valuation on the former Aston Villa man.
Director of Football Damien Comolli is also interested in signing Tottenham bench warmer Niko Kranjcar. The Croatian international is growing increasingly unhappy at White Hart Lane and after making just two Premier League appearances this season Harry Redknapp may be willing to offload the former Pompey man.
