Reds are desperate to find a like-for-like replacement for the retired Carragher.
Liverpool are interested in signing Manchester City’s Kolo Toure on a free transfer at the end of the season, says the Daily Telegraph.
The Ivory Coast international’s contract at Eastlands is due to come to an end on 30 June 2013 and as a result, Reds head coach Brendan Rodgers would be able to pick up the 32-year-old for nothing this summer.
And with the Merseyside giants having just lost the services of veteran centre-back Jamie Carragher, who decided to hang up his boots after Sunday’s final Premier League game of the season against Queens Park Rangers, Toure’s experience could come in handy for Rodgers next campaign.
Toure, who has been capped 103 times by his country in a 13-year international career to date, has barely featured for his current employers recently, playing just 15 top-flight matches for Roberto Mancini this season, and only 17 games in all competitions in total.
However, the utility player did play 326 fixtures for Arsenal in a glittering nine-year career in north London, during which time he won the Premier League in 2004.
