Liverpool Chasing Lazio Left Back Aleksandar Kolarov

Due to the inescapable fact that Emiliano Insua is their first-choice left back, Liverpool are understandably eager to bring in an actual footballer to fill the berth, and that man is reportedly Lazio’s Aleksandar Kolarov.

Rafa Bentiez is to renew his efforts (Liverpool made initial enquiries in January) to sign the Serbian international before the World Cup begins in June, in a bid to recruit the fullback before a decent tournament inflates his asking price further.

Kolarov should be available relatively cheaply, as Lazio are apparently looking to balance their books following a disappointing outing in the Italian league this time out.

The 25-year-old has been linked with moves to most of the big names in Serie A (most notably Inter Milan) after his tireless performances have proved to be one of the only plus-points in what has been a dismal season for the Biancocelesti.

    Looks like Harry Kewell and Gareth Barry had a kid.

    insua will probably be quite a good player one day, but at the moment he should be a deputy and would be if aurelio was still able to, you know, run.

    Rafa should rather go for Bale or Clichy…

    Bale or Clichy, ur talkin 20m plus a piece for them.
    lookin at this guy aswell he looks decent, pretty big and solid but it just eludes me how liverpools “top” scouts can’t go out and find a couple of Gems for around 5m, look at man utd finding vidic and evra for buttons, look at the young Korean playing for Bolton costing 2.2m and now being touted as an 8m target for liverpool. When cash is tight this is where liverpool need to look. Yes they are in need of a big money signing or two but when that is not an option the scouting system must be looked at no?
