Kolo Toure to join Liverpool?

It was reported late last night that Liverpool are weighing up a move for Manchester City defender Kolo Toure, who is out of contract at the Etihad in the summer.

The brother to team-mate Yaya, has been heavily linked with a move to Turkey over the past year, with a move to Galatasaray falling through in January.

With Anfield legend Jamie Carragher retiring from football this summer, the Reds are looking for an experienced head to steady the defence, and the Ivory Coast International fits the bill on a free transfer.

It wouldn’t be a signing which fits the current philosophy of manager Brendan Rodgers and the board, who look to invest in youth, to adapt to the passing game implemented this season.

No official word has been mentioned by either club regarding the move of the thirty-two year old to Anfield, although it is expected to move along quickly now the season has officially finished on Sunday.
