Liverpool have earmarked summer moves for Manchester City defender Micah Richards and Real Madrid’s Portuguese left-back Fabio Coentrao, reports the Mirror.
The Reds will go back to the top of the Premier League table if they beat West Ham this afternoon, but will need to strengthen their squad in the summer with Champions League football next term more than likely.
Richards, 25, has had his career hampered badly by injuries. and has only made nine appearances in the past two seasons in the top flight. His talent though is undeniable, and Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers is a known admirer of the Englishman’s physicality and versatility.
Coentrao once cost Real Madrid £25m, but can’t get in the side now with Brazilian superstar Marcelo occupying the left-back spot. Liverpool badly need to buy a left fullback, with Jose Enrique perpetually injured, and Glen Johnson and Jon Flanagan more comfortable on the right of the back four.
Both players would likely be available, and could join a Premier League winning side if the Reds continue their brilliant form.
