LIVERPOOL have turned their attentions to Real Madrid centre back Raul Albiol as a replacement for Jamie Carragher.
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers admitted last week that he was worried about who would fill Carragher's shoes, as the defensive stalwart has announced he is retiring after the season finishes. The Reds have already been scuppered in their bid to land £10m rated Swansea captain Ashley Williams, who is expected to join Arsenal in the summer. The Express Online reported yesterday that Liverpool are eyeing a move for Lille's left-back Lucas Digne, who is tipped to grace a bigger stage. According to reports in Italy, Albiol has fallen out of favour with Jose Mourinho and has been limited to just 11 starts.
They also note that Albiol is trying to force himself into the reckoning for a place in Spain's 2014 World Cup squad. Albiol only signed a new deal which will keep him at the Bernebeu until 2017. Despite his on-the-field woes, Albiol started in Real's 1-1 draw with Espanyol over the weekend.
