Christian Fuchs has re-emerged as a transfer target for Liverpool after his contract renewal talks with Leicester City stalled.

Sun on Sunday says Fuchs, 30, has held talks with the Premier League champions over extending his contract but that they have run into trouble.

The Austria international's current deal at the King Power Stadium runs out at the end of next season.

Wes Morgan, Jamie Vardy, Danny Drinkwater, Kasper Schmeichel, Riyad Mahrez and Foxes manager Claudio Ranieri have all agreed new deals with Leicester since their historic title triumph last season.

Fuchs is not among the highest earners at the club and was linked with Liverpool earlier in the summer.

Reds boss Jurgen Klopp has used James Milner at left-back after Alberto Moreno struggled in the 4-3 win over Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium on 14 August.

The Spaniard conceded a penalty by fouling Theo Walcott in the first half – which was saved by Simon Mignolet – before being caught out of position for the England international's opener a minute later.

The defender has been under fire since his defensive horror show in last season's Europa League final against Sevilla in May.

Gary Neville and other television pundits were scathing in their assessment of his defending against Arsenal.

"You might as well start a goal down with Moreno at left-back," Neville was quoted as saying by the Liverpool Echo.

Former Reds captain Graeme Souness added: "He's having a stinker. He's a winger playing at left-back, he doesn't sense danger early enough."

Liverpool were also linked with a move for Leicester full-back Ben Chilwell earlier this summer, but the 19-year-old signed a new contract at the King Power Stadium.

Fuchs made 32 league appearances for Leicester last season. He played the full 90 minutes of the club's 2-1 win over Swansea City on 27 August.
