Kolo ToureSky Sports understands that Liverpool are readying summer bid for Manchester City wantaway defender Kolo Toure.

The Ivorian defender looks set to leave the Citizens when his contract runs out at the end of the season as he hasn’t been offered a new deal at Etihad.

As a result, the experienced centre-back should be in high demand in the summer transfer window, with Liverpool the latest club to have joined the chase.

The Reds were hoping to sign a long-term replacement for retiring Jamie Carragher, but having failed to do so, they might opt for a short-term solution and attempt to sign Kolo Toure.

BetVictor seem to believe the Ivorian is on the verge of joining the Anfield outfit, with Liverpool 1.40 (2/5) favourites for his signature, and Everton next at 11.00 (10/1).

Newcastle and West Ham are both priced at 13.00 (12/1) as they seem to be pondering a move for Toure as well.

The 32-year-old has spent last four years at Manchester City, clocking up 82 Premier League appearances and scoring 2 goals in the process.
