Liverpool are ready to listen to offers for Scott Carson - if they can land Fulham goalkeeper Antti Niemi.

The News of the World says the Reds are ready to take Fulham keeper Niemi to Anfield as back-up for No 1 Pepe Reina.

Niemi, 36, cost £2million from Southampton in 2006, but is behind Mark Schwarzer in the Craven Cottage pecking order.

Liverpool still have Carson on their books but he could be off to West Brom or Middlesbrough.
