Liverpool defender Kolo Toure is poised to swap the Reds for the Red Bulls – by moving to America.
Centre-back Toure, 34, wants a two-year contract extension not the single season on offer at Anfield.
Major League Soccer outfit New York Red Bulls have now said they are ready to hand the Kop star a deal until 2017.
That could see Ivorian Toure follow Steven Gerrard to the USA as he has agreed to join LA Galaxy this summer.
A source close to Toure said: “New York Red Bulls have made an approach for Kolo. Once the time comes, we will decide what is best for him.”
The former Arsenal and Manchester City man has featured 44 times for the Reds since his free transfer to Anfield in 2013.
