Ryan Bertrand
Ryan Bertrand is believed to be a target for Liverpool, but will come at a price.

Liverpool have been quoted £8m for Chelsea defender Ryan Bertrand, with the side considering making a January bid for the out-of-favour Englishman.

Bertrand has been used by Jose Mourinho a total of three times this season and has played just 64 minutes in the Premier League.

At 24 years of age it would appear that the left-back is set for a move away from the club, particularly after failing to impress on five separate loan spells in his career.

The Daily Telegraph are reporting that Liverpool are willing to take Bertrand off the Blues' hands and see him as a good replacement for the currently injured Jose Enrique.

Enrique had surgery on his knee this week and is expected to be out of action for the Reds until around February, and Brendan Rodgers has confirmed that the club will be on the lookout for more options in the left-back department in order to adequately cope without the Spaniard.

With that in mind Bertrand could be the perfect solution for Liverpool and Rodgers is no stranger to taking on out-of-favour players from Chelsea and turning them into stars, having done exactly that with Daniel Sturridge at the beginning of 2013.

Sunderland and Cardiff are also believed to be interested in Bertrand for a possible loan spell but Rodgers has worked with the England international before during the manager's time with Chelsea's reserves and Liverpool are reportedly hopeful that this connection will make a move to Merseyside favourable.

With the January transfer window just one month away the Reds are gearing up for a very busy period as Rodgers looks to keep them in contention for Champions League football.
