Liverpool international hints at Anfield exit in the summer; EPL winner expecting doors will open

Posted by

Kolo Toure has insisted that he is not considering retirement should Liverpool not renew his contract.

The Ivorian centre-back is coming to the end of his current deal at Anfield, and will become a free agent in the summer.

While Jurgen Klopp could still opt to offer the West African a new deal, as of yet, talks have not been forthcoming, and the signing of Joel Matip—who will arrive from Schalke 04 on a free transfer next summer—adds further competition for Toure.

The veteran has benefited this season from injuries to the likes of Mamadou Sakho, Dejan Lovren and Martin Skrtel, and has subsequently made 16 appearances. However, at 34, it remains to be seen whether he still has a role to play on Merseyside.

Should he leave the club, the defender has insisted that he will not hand up his boots, and is confident that the offers will come rolling in.

“I can show people by my games that I’m still a top player,” Toure began, as reported by the Mirror. “That’s all I can do and I will fight until the end. I will enjoy every second at Liverpool.

“I’ve not had any offers for next season yet, and I’ve not been told anything. If I keep playing like I am at the moment then I’m sure doors will open.”
