Djimi Traore of Liverpool could be making a move over Stanley Park to Everton, as he wants to be playing first team football regularly.

Everton have made an offer for the Frenchman to bolster as manager David Moyes looks to bolster his defence.

Traore has fallen down the pecking order at Anfield and has not impressed new boss Rafael Benitez. He is currently injured but will make the short trip to Goodison Park if his first team outings at Anfield are limited.

“I am very keen on a move to Everton,” said Traore. ” I want to be playing regularly and I don’t want to be in the same situation as last season when I was in and out of the side.”

The 24-year-old also expressed his desire to play as a left-sided centre back but knows that competition at Liverpool is stiff.

He also expressed his desire to stay in the city by saying: “A move to Everton would suit me as I love the city of Liverpool and I am settled here.”

Former Liverpool boss Gerard Houllier bought Traore in February 1999 for £550, 000 from French club Lavel.
