Bordeaux defender Lamine Sane has issued a come and get me plea to Liverpool after publicly expressing his desire to join the Reds.

The 27-year-old has been one of the integral players for the French club and has featured in 16 league games this season. He has been the Ligue 1 outfit's captain and claims he is happy with his current employers.

However, the Senegal international has revealed that he has always been drawn to England and dreams of playing for the Merseyside club.

"Honestly, I feel very good at Bordeaux, for the moment. It is true that I have always been drawn to England," Sane told BeIN Sports.

"As for a club - Liverpool. I have always said Liverpool, since my first ever interview. It is a club that I really like."

The African can feature as a central defender and also in the holding midfield role. With Sane confirming his interest to play for Liverpool, it should be seen whether Brendan Rodgers will make an approach for Bordeaux captain in the summer transfer window.

Meanwhile, Rodgers has admitted that an improved squad depth has helped Liverpool cope with multiple injuries. The Reds sealed a 2-1 victory over Manchester City at Anfield and the former Swansea boss was without the services of eight first team players.

Steven Gerrard, Lucas Leiva, Mamadou Sakho, Jose Enrique, Glen Johnson, Jon Flanagan, Brad Jones and Jordon Ibe missed the clash due to injuries.

"The squad depth has been important. I don't want too many players, that's the honesty of it," Rodgers explained.

"Really you want 16/17 that you know you can put in and I like to have young players on top of that I can put in. We've had six or seven players missing and certainly in my first period here that would have really hurt us."

"Now we can change and put in a young player and he'll slide into the system and understand how it works and right now it's working very well," the Liverpool manager concluded.
