Premier League giants Liverpool have moved for Paris Saint-Germain striker Ezequiel Lavezzi and have reportedly made a £17.9million bid, according to the Metro.
Manager Brendon Rodgers has already spent close to £100 million on his summer acquisitions this season but is still on the look out to add further quality to the existing squad.
Liverpool sold Luis Suarez to Barcelona for £75 million and are out in the market to find a replacement of the dynamic talisman. Apart from making seven new additions to the squad, Rodgers has hinted there is still work to be done in the transfer window for the Reds.
Frenchman Loic Remy was poised to join the Anfield outfit but the deal collapsed due to the frontman failing a medical and Rodgers now views Lavezzi as the best alternative.
Paris Saint-Germain want to offload a number of their stars to comply with Financial Fair Play.Having signed David Luiz from Chelsea for nearly £50million, the French heavyweight club now have to let go of some of their stellar signings of last summer.
Lavezzi is one of the highest earners at Parc des Princes but manager Laurent Blanc is not a big fan of the Argentine and would have no qualms to let the striker leave for Premier League.
Spanish daily ,AS reports PSG want the deal for Lavezzi to go through quickly in order for them to lodge a €55million bid to land compatriot Angel Di Maria from Real Madrid.
Serie A champions Juventus are monitoring the situation and want to bring Lavezzi back to Italy, having being already accustomed to Italian football while playing for Napoli.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Edinson Cavani are ahead of Lavezzi in the pecking order and a move away from France would be the best option for Lavezzi.
The 29-year-old had a good 2013-14 season for The Parisians,scoring 12 goals and 10 assists in 48 appearances in all competitions,according to The Independent.
He was also a member of the Argentine squad that travelled to Brazil for the World Cup and ended the tournament as runners-up.
