LIVERPOOL are leading the hunt for Blackburn’s defensive colossus Chris Samba.

The ambitious Rovers star has switched agents after failing to secure a move away from Ewood Park last summer.

And Liverpool have been alerted to the fact he remains keen on leaving the struggling Ewood Park club. Arsenal showed keen interest in Samba last January, when the Congo international was rewarded with an improved five-year contract by Blackburn.

It is believed Samba, 27, has become increasingly frustrated with life at Ewood Park and is eager to move to a bigger club while he is still in his prime.

That has sparked his move to new representatives and could see him switch clubs in January.

Blackburn owners Venky’s are under no pressure to sell players but they could be tempted by an offer of around £10million for their prize asset.

Liverpool’s back four were guilty of schoolboy errors last term and have pretty much picked up where they left off during the current campaign and the need to bring in an experienced no nonsense defender like Christopher Samba is increased by the injury issues suffered by the likes of Martin Skrtel and Daniel Agger this term as well as the poor form shown by veteran Jamie Carragher.

Last term the Merseyside club conceded their highest Premier League tally for over a decade and whilst this season they have let in less they have also had to Pepe Reina to thank on numerous occasions as the centre back pairings that Dalglish has picked have found it difficult to deal with basic defensive duties.

Samba is sure to be keen on a move to Liverpool as it is clear that his Blackburn Rovers side will spend this season hoping to avoid relegation and the Congo international deserves to be playing for a club that can offer him a shot European football.
