Liverpool star reveals desire to fight for new deal

Liverpool star Kolo Toure has revealed his desire to continue proving his worth in hopes of being given an extension, Skysports reports.

The 34-year-old will see his contract expire at the end of current campaign, with the club yet to open talks with the centre-back regarding his future.

Toure’s role has been put in further jeopardy following confirmation that Schalke defender Joel Matip is set to complete a free transfer to Anfield in the summer.

The former Arsenal and Manchester City star admitted that he is looking to impress manager Jurgen Klopp after starting the last two games due to a number of injuries in the squad.

“I am a fighter. The future is not the most important thing for me. What’s important is what’s happening for me right now,” he said.

“I’m in the team at the moment and I am showing every game that I’m still here.

“I’ve not had any offers for next season yet but if I keep playing like I am at the moment then I’m sure doors will open.”

Despite being seen as the fourth choice selection, he is also in line to start the upcoming Europa League second leg match against Augsburg this week.

Based on his performance, Toure may also be in contention for a starting spot against Manchester City in the Capital One Cup final this coming Sunday.
