Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is targeting Cardiff City captain Steven Caulker.

The Mirror says Rodgers wanted Caulker last summer but Tottenham refused to sell to their rivals.

They instead flogged former England U21 and Great Britain stopper Caulker to Cardiff for a smaller £8million fee but with a 50% sell-on clause.

Caulker has a relegation release clause which Liverpool now plan to activate.
