Departing Liverpool defender Toure to snub Rangers for China

Kolo Toure could be on his way to China, according to recent reports.

It is understood that the veteran defender will not be signing a new contract with Liverpool and is expected to be on the way out the Anfield exit door this summer.

Initial reports suggested that Scottish club Rangers were set to pursue the 35-year-old but it is believed that he could be joining the Chinese Super League revolution instead.

Reports indicate that at least one club in China is prepared to offer big money to lure Toure to the Far East if his Liverpool exit is confirmed.

Jurgen Klopp is expecting the arrival of Joel Matip from Schalke and if Mamadou Sakho is cleared to play on next season, Toure's career on Merseyside may well be over despite his fine performance in the Europa League final defeat to Sevilla.
