Fulham full back Paul Konchesky is set for a move to Liverpool and is believed to be traveling to Merseyside for a medical this weekend.
The 29 year old Englishman is expected to cost the Reds around £3m and will see him link up with former boss Roy Hodgson at Anfield.
Hodgson had pinpointed the left back spot as a position he needed to strengthen, although Emiliano Insua still remains at the club despite a fee being agreed with two Italian sides this summer.
Konchesky’s transfer can be completed now Fulham have signed their replacement for him, PSV’s Mexican international Carlos Salcido – a player Liverpool were also interested in.
Meanwhile, reports suggest The Cottagers are in talks with two Liverpool youngsters, Lauri Dalla Valle and Alex Kacaniklic.
