Manchester City are keeping tabs on Peter Crouch's stalled contract talks at Liverpool.

With Fernando Torres, Andriy Voronin and Dirk Kuyt also competing for places in the Anfield attack, Crouch is concerned a lack of games will impact on his England prospects. Rafa Benitez has constantly stated he has no intention of selling Crouch, but Liverpool's hand may be forced if the striker doesn't sign up to a new deal with both Manchester City and Juventus alerted by the current impasse.
