Liverpool have reportedly yet to give up hope of bringing Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez to Anfield before the transfer deadline.

The Reds are said to have made an approach for Tevez last week, offering City much maligned forward Andy Carroll in a straight swap deal.

City, though, rejected this proposal and Tevez - who is no longer in Roberto Mancini's plans - looks set to stay at the Etihad Stadium past the deadline.

However, according to The Times, Liverpool could yet formalise their interest once again, should they be given encouragement to do so by the City hierarchy.

But several obstacles to a potential deal remain for Kenny Dalglish, with Liverpool unable to afford the 27-year-old's wages, while Tevez wants to leave England.

Tevez has also been courted by both Milan clubs, while Queens Park Rangers are reported to be interest in bringing the Argentine to Loftus Road on loan.
