AC Milan have joined the race to sign Liverpool target Javier Pastore, according to talkSPORT.
Argentine international Pastore, who signed for Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain from Serie A outfit Palermo for a reported fee of £37 million during the summer of 2011, has struggled to impress new boss Laurent Blanc - the former Manchester United defender - since the 47-year-old was appointed in the aftermath of Carlo Ancelotti's departure to La Liga giants Real Madrid earlier this summer.
Pastore, who has won 13 senior international caps for his country, has only made five appearances in the league so far this season and his disappointing bit-part role under Blanc has seen speculation rapidly intensify about a possible switch away from the wealthy Parisians.
Brendan Rodgers' Liverpool, who have enjoyed a strong start to the new domestic campaign and currently sit second in the Premier League after amassing 13 points from their opening six fixtures, have been linked with a potential move for Pastore.
Rodgers, though, who may well see the talented 24-year-old as the ideal creative presence to compliment formidable strike duo Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge, looks set to face competition from Massimiliano Allegri's Rossoneri for Pastore's signature.
According to talkSPORT, the Serie A giants are interested in bringing the former Huracan star back to Italy.
