Paraguay ace Victor Caceres is "80 per cent" certain to move to the Premier League, with Liverpool thought to be the frontrunners for his signature.
Caceres was one of Paraguay's star turns as they reached the World Cup quarter-final - losing out to eventual winners Spain - and the 25-year-old has attracted interest across Europe.
With Javier Mascherano eyeing the exit door at Anfield, Caceres could take over the Argentina captain's defensive role in the Liverpool midfield. It is believed that Roy Hodgson may have to sell players if he wishes to invest in his squad, with the potential departure of Mascherano expected to pave the way for a bid for Libertad star Caceres.
"It is fair to say that a number of clubs are looking at Victor, he had a fantastic World Cup," his agent Barry McIntosh told Sky Sports.
"We always believed Victor would impress in South Africa, and he did not disappoint.
"The interest he is getting is from throughout Europe and a deal is not far away, I would say he is 80 per cent likely to be going to England."
