Liverpool have been alerted to the potential availability of Dimitri Payet after talks regarding a new contract with Saint-Etienne broke down.

According to the Daily Mail, the French club have called off negotiations with the 23-year-old and are now resigned to losing him at the end of the season.

Liverpool have been linked with a move for the France international ever since Damien Comolli jumped ship from Saint-Etienne to take up the same role at Anfield.

The Liverpool director of football strategy is known to be keen to bring the €8.5 million-rated winger to Anfield at some point but is likely to cause yet more uproar after leaving France on bad terms.

Upon his arrival at Liverpool, Comolli was critical of the working conditions at Stade Geoffroy-Guichard and has since angered club president Roland Romeyer.

However, this isn't expected to stop Liverpool making an approach for Payet, whose progress they continue to monitor.

The former Le Havre forward is being tipped for great things and would provide Liverpool with the attacking invention they so desperately crave.

Liverpool are expected to add forward-thinking reinforcements in January and could do worse than bring Payet to Anfield.
