Liverpool fans are looking up with interest here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they hear from Metro that Kolo Toure is looking to leave the club this summer in search of more regular football.
Toure has often been ridiculed but as our regulars point out, at times, he has actually put in some decent performances and is not a bad squad player to have around.
The player, who is out of contract in the summer, claimed: ‘For me, there’s a decision to be taken. I am looking around and seeing what’s best for my family.
‘I’m talking with my wife to see what that decision will be. I’m a competitor and I want to play more.’
We think that a Premier League club will take Toure on but as one of our punters notes, we are not too sure that he will be attracting interest from Champions League or even Europa League ones, not that Liverpool can guarantee the former anyway.
