Liverpool have made a shock bid for Manchester City defender Micah Richards.

The Reds made an attempted to take Richards on-loan earlier today.

With Glen Johnson struggling for fitness, Brendan Rodgers is looking at securing an experienced right-back, says the Daily Mail.

Richards' first team chances have been restricted due to the performances of Pablo Zabaleta. And Liverpool have tested the water with a cheeky loan offer.

But for the moment, City have said 'no'.
