Liverpool Join Race For PSV Defender Carlos Salcido - Report

The Mexico international has apparently attracted the interest of Liverpool...
According to a report in the Daily Mirror, experienced PSV defender Carlos Salcido has attracted the interest of Premier League outfit Liverpool with his good performances for Mexico at the 2010 World Cup.

Liverpool parted company with Fabio Aurelio earlier this summer and Emiliano Insua is set to leave the Reds for Fiorentina. Therefore, manager Roy Hodgson wants to add a new defender to his squad and the former Fulham gaffer supposedly considers Salcido to be the perfect addition to his back-line.

Salcido joined PSV from Guadalajara in the summer of 2006 and has since developed into a key player at the Eindhoven side. The 30-year-old has made 121 Eredivisie appearances for PSV, scoring three goals in the process.

The versatile defender's current contract with PSV runs until the summer of 2012, but the Eredivisie titans are keen to cash in on Salcido this transfer window. They've reportedly set a €3 million asking price for the defender.

Liverpool reportedly face stiff competition from clubs such as Valencia, Wigan Athletic and Roma in the race for Salcido's signature.
