Is Micah Richards going to be Brendan Rodgers’ next big signing for Liverpool?

Ashley Football 2 Comments

Liverpool have already made one of the key signings of the window in snapping up Daniel Sturridge, but it seems that Brendan Rodgers’ spree isn’t going to end there.

A few papers are reporting that the Liverpool manager is back on the case renegotiating the return of Thomas Ince from Blackpool with a fee of around £5 million.

But Italian source TuttoMercato (reported here by Goal) also says that the Reds are keeping close tabs on Man City defender Micah Richards.

The England defender has only had a few opportunities at Man City this season, after injuring his knee in October, and seems to have fallen off manager Roberto Mancini’s radar. Even when he was fit, like at the end of last season, his chances were limited. Mancini has an embarrassment of riches at the back and some papers are even linking Joleon Lescott with a move away from the club possibly to Aston Villa.

Liverpool already have an England player at right back in Glenn Johnson, but Richards would be a very useful centre back for Rodgers.

    This is as dumb as they come, how many right backs/ central defenders do you think Brendan has on his hands???  Bloody loads!  is the answer.  Apart from that,  Richards doesn’t want to play at right back anyway, plus, he’s an injury liability.   Crap speculation at best.

  • This january i hope LFC can get Daniel Sturridge,Tom Ince,Jack Butland and Dries Merten.It is enough to keep fight for premier league team.Next season better get just 2 or 3 more signing.Before that i hope LFC will never still depend to Downing and henderson for playing midfielder next season.Doni also never do anything since arrive from AS ROMASell them all,NO POINT TO KEEP.The budget we can get sign for Christian Erikson and Edison Cavani and 1 more centre back or new CDM players
