Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish is reportedly eyeing on a summer move for Bayer Leverkusen left back Michal Kadlec who has impressed the Liverpool scouts recently.
Reports available in the English media suggest that the Czech Republic international is one of the prime targets of new Liverpool manager who wants to strengthen his defense in the summer. Liverpool has suffered a lot due to its weak back line this season, so it is clear that defensive reinforcement would be their priority at the end of the season.
However, Michal Kadlec, who has been in excellent form recently, denied to have any contact with the Merseyside club, but was well-aware of Liverpool’s interest through English media when asked about it. The former Sparta Prague player joined Bayer Leverkusen in 2008.
Kadlec said, "I know that they were present at our early-season game against Dortmund, which we won 2-0. But I don't know whether there has been any progress since then. It (Liverpool's interest) was in some English paper, but I know nothing specific about it. I have not discussed it with anyone."
It is natural that Liverpool would like to have more options in the back with out-of-form defender Paul Konchesky being sent to club Championship club Nottingham Forest on loan. Konchesky failed to live up the expectations since his move to Liverpool from Fulham in 2010.
Michal Kadlec has so far played 17 matches for Czech Republic.
