Rafa Benitez's Liverpool could be set to enter the race for Bayern Munich's wantaway defender Sammy Kuffour, according to reports in the German media.
The Ghana international has just a year left on his current contract at The Olympic Stadium and has already been made available for transfer by new
Bayern coach Felix Magath.
Interest from Juventus, Olympiakos and Hamburg has so far failed to result in a bid, but Liverpool could now be ready to swoop.
Kuffour, who has dropped behind Lucio, Thomas Linke, Martin Demichelis and Andreas Gorlitz in the pecking order, is desperate to find a new club and
he could find salvation in the shape of Liverpool.
Benitez is looking to bolster his defensive options, even though he has already added Spaniard Josemi this summer.
