​Monaco have shown an interest in defender Kolo Toure as he looks to be on his way out of Anfield this summer, according to the Daily Mail.

The 35-year-old is out of contract at the end of this month and is not expected to sign an extension.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is reshaping his side that finished a disappointing eighth in the Premier League last season and there is no room for Toure, who only played a bit-part in Liverpool's last three years.

The Merseyside club have reportedly considered offering Toure a coaching role at Anfield but it is believed the Ivorian is keen to prolong his playing career.

Monaco's squad has an average age of 24 and boss Leonardo Jardim is looking to bolster his side with more experienced talent.


And that could mean Toure playing alongside fellow veteran Ricardo Carvalho at the heart of the Monaco defence.

Carvalho, 38, signed for Monaco in 2013 and has been a reliable member of the first-team squad throughout.

You may have heard the phrase "if you're good enough, you're old enough" but Monaco seem to be challenging this cliché and creating their own version of it. If you are still good enough, you are young enough.

And this could be cause for optimism for Toure, who would no doubt feature a lot more for Monaco than he did for Liverpool in his three years at Anfield.

Toure was, however, part of the Liverpool side that lost to Sevilla in the Europa League final last season and was praised for his strong performance in a 3-1 defeat to the competition specialists.

But with Liverpool bringing in new players such as Joel Matip from Schalke on a free transfer, playing time for Toure would be even more doubtful, which could see him leaving for Monaco sooner rather than later.

Rangers have also been linked with the Ivorian as Mark Warburton gears up for life in the Scottish Premiership.
