Clichy linked as Reds promise signings

Liverpool director of football Damien Comolli has promised the club's fans there will plenty more transfer activity this summer amid reports that the club have made a £5 million move for Arsenal's Gael Clichy.

• Liverpool chasing Serie A defender

The Reds signed England midfielder Jordan Henderson from Sunderland this week in a deal worth around £16 million. The 20-year-old is the third major signing since Kenny Dalglish's return as manager, with Andy Carroll and Luis Suarez joining in January.

Now Comolli has said there is more to come, as Liverpool set about building a squad capable of getting back into Champions League contention, after missing out on European football altogether this season.

"We wanted to make a signing early," Comolli is quoted as saying in the Daily Mirror. "The earlier the better because we can then re-adjust our strategy or decide we aren't going to do any more - which won't be the case now!

"I'm very pleased, because Jordan was one of the big targets we had. When you get your first target it's always a good sign because you think the others will come through as well."

Liverpool look set to miss out on both Phil Jones and Ashley Young to Manchester United, but with the likes of Ipswich's Connor Wickham and Blackpool captain Charlie Adam also on their radar, it is clear they are prioritising homegrown talent.

"If a player is English, or British or has played in the Premier League, we'll look at that over someone abroad," confirmed Comolli. "We go for a player because he ticks all the boxes. It's what we need at this time in this window, and we have seen that with Henderson."

The Guardian reports that Kenny Dalglish has tested the waters over Clichy by lodging a £5 million bid with Arsenal, who will be fully aware that the Frenchman only has a year to run on his current contract.

However, it is expected that Arsene Wenger will offer his left-back a new deal in the near future in order to fend off his Premier League rivals.
