Liverpool want to keep Sami Hyypia despite making a bid for fellow central defender Gabriel Milito.
Chief executive Rick Parry has revealed former captain Hyypia, 31, will be offered a contract extension.
He told Liverpool's website: "We will be talking to Sami about a new deal. But We're interested in bringing at least one more centre-half to the club.
"Sami and Jamie Carragher can't be expected to play 50 games every season without any back-up."
