Danny Murphy: 'Gary Cahill would suit Liverpool'

Former Liverpool midfielder Danny Murphy believes that the club should look to sign wantaway Chelsea centre-back Gary Cahill this month.

Former England and Liverpool midfielder Danny Murphy has said that Gary Cahill would be a good signing for Jurgen Klopp's side this month.

Cahill is understood to be unhappy at Stamford Bridge having fallen behind Kurt Zouma in the pecking order under interim Chelsea boss Guus Hiddink.

With his position in the England side also not secured, the 30-year-old is thought to be keen on regular first-team football ahead of Euro 2016, and Murphy believes that Anfield would be a good fit for both the club and the player.

"Gary Cahill is competing with John Stones and Chris Smalling for a place in the England lineup, for me. And there's one thing for sure, that if he stays on the bench for the rest of the season at Chelsea he's not going to oust either of them from the team," Murphy told talkSPORT.

"The question mark is would Chelsea let him go? And if they would, who needs him and who could pay the money for him? He only recently signed a new Chelsea contract and he's on a good wage. Would he suit Liverpool? Would he be a player that gets into the Liverpool team and make a difference? Yes, he would. He's a terrific lad, a good pro, a good trainer and not a moaner or a whinger.

"I completely understand why he might want to move, if that is true. At his age it could be his last big championships in an England shirt, and I like that attitude that he's desperate to play for his country. Can he perform to the levels we know he can in a different shirt, for a different club? Yeah, of course he can. He's a winner and every time I see him play I think he'd die for the team, he gives it everything he's got. If he does become available, there a few clubs would pay good money for him."

Chelsea are thought to be unwilling to let the centre-back leave this month.
