Liverpool are looking to bring former Manchester United striker Carlos Tevez to Anfield.

The 31-year-old's contract with Juventus expires at the end of next season and according to The Express Tevez could be returning to the Premier League with the Reds.

Contract negotiations have stalled between Juventus chiefs and Tevez. Director Giussepe Morata has now said: “We’ll meet with him after the Champions League final. We want him to stay, but now the ball is in his court.”

Whether Tevez wants to stay is another matter though. Having scored 29 goals already this season and lead Juventus to the Champions League final, the Argentine is exactly the kind of player that Brendan Rodgers needs.

Daniel Sturridge can not shake his enjoy problems while Mario Balotelli, Rickie Lambert and Fabio Borini have failed to impress at any point in this campaign.

None of these players have come close to replacing the talismanic Luis Suarez and Tevez who be a more like for like replacement than the players Liverpool brought in last summer.

Liverpool have already been linked with £30million rated Christian Benteke and Burnley's 22-year-old striker Danny Ings. However, facing stiff competition for both of these players it could mean that Liverpool look elsewhere.

With Tevez's contract winding down a few between £10million & £15million could be enough to sign the experienced striker.

Carlos Tevez has also been linked with a return to former club Boca Juniors. If a bid does materialise Liverpool could struggle to land the star striker as Tevez looks to return to his home nation, Argentina.

Liverpool fans: Who do you think Brendan Rodgers should be looking to sign at Anfield this summer?
