Rodgers wants Manchester City and England star Lescott at Anfield.
Liverpool have made an inquiry about the availability of Manchester City centre-half Joleon Lescott, reports Cheshire Today.
The England international, who joined Manchester City from the Reds’ rivals Everton, has failed down the pecking order at the Etihad and made just 19 starts in all competitions this season.
At 30, Lescott is keen to play regular first team football but may be prepared to wait until after the appointment of City boss-in-waiting Manuel Pellegrini before deciding his future.
Anfield boss Brendan Rodgers is in need of a new centre-half this summer, following the retirement of Jamie Carragher. Liverpool have been linked with Man City’s Kolo Toure, as well as Lescott, Schalke youngster Kyriakos Papadopoulos and Swansea City skipper Ashley Williams.
Club insiders reportedly told Chesire Today that Lescott was among the Reds’ ‘top five’ targets, while a loan move back to Everton may also be an option for the former Wolves player.
The fact that Lescott is an ex-Toffee may prove a complication for Liverpool, however.
