Liverpool fans are looking up with interest here in the Football Transfer Tavern as Metro have claimed that the club are set to make a play for defender Dede.
The club have long been on the lookout for a centre half and given the fact that Jamie Carragher is set to retire this summer and there is uncertainty over the futures of both Sebastian Coates and Martin Skrtel, it seems that at least one centre half will be required in the summer.
Liverpool are not the only club interested in the defender however and they will have to fight it out with AC Milan amongst other clubs if they want to land the Vasco da Gama star. The Brazilian international is available for around £15 million after Vasco admitted that they needed to sell in order to raise cash and it certainly seems that the club are willing to pay around that amount for the player who has a contract until 2015.
Not only has Dede found himself on the Reds radar of late, but it seems that Ashley Williams, Mamadou Sakho and also Toby Alderweireld have also been scouted by Brendan Rodgers men.
