The players Rodgers is targeting to plug the gap in defence.
The prolonged injury of Jose Enrique and Aly Cissokho’s failure to impress on-loan from Valencia means Liverpool are likely to be targeting a left-back in the summer.
Although both Jon Flanagan and Glen Johnson have filled in admirably when required, if Brendan Rodgers wants to continue to push for Premier League success a squad with more depth is needed.
Here are five options for the Reds on the left side of defence.
Reports keep emerging that Rodgers is a huge fan of the England international and wants to sign the 33-year-old when his current contract at Chelsea expires at the end of the season.
There is no doubting that the hugely decorated Cole has been one of the world’s best defenders over the past decade, but signs of a drop in form and fitness this term could be a worry for the Merseysiders.
