Check in to Transfer Window: Done Deal Alerts

Liverpool are poised to sign Man City defender Kolo Toure according to the Daily Telegraph.

The 32 year old Ivory Coast international will be available on a free transfer as his Etihad Stadium contract is due to come to an end on July 1st.

Toure joined Man City in a £16m deal back in 2009 but after serving a six month ban for a failed drugs test the former Arsenal man has been something of a bit-part player, finding himself behind Vincent Kompany, Joleon Lescott and youngster Matija Nastasic in the defensive pecking order.

Brendan Rodgers is keen to strengthen his defence with Jamie Carragher retiring from the game and with question marks over the future of Slovakian international Martin Skrtel, who has barely featured in the Liverpool first team over the past few months.

Liverpool have been linked with numerous potential defensive signings with the likes of Schalke youngster Kyriakos Papadopoulos, Sporting Lisbon’s Tiago Llori and Swansea City centre-back Ashley Williams all being linked with moves to Anfield.

Toure has made 99 appearances for Man City, winning a Premier League and an FA Cup in the process prior to which he spent eight seasons at Arsenal.
