Liverpool are reportedly considering a summer move for striker Ezequiel Lavezzi.

The Argentine international forward has been earning rave reviews for his performances with Napoli in Serie 'A', and Kenny Dalglish is thought to be interested in bringing the player to Liverpool.

Lavezzi gave the Merseysiders a glimpse of his talents in a Europa League clash at Anfield earlier this season, shining in the first half before Steven Gerrard came off the bench to rescue Liverpool with a hat-trick.

A product of the Boca youth system, the player made his name in south America before signing at the Stadio San Paolo for €6 million back in 2007. Lavezzi had previously signed for Genoa, but did not make an appearance during his first spell in Italy.

Whilst not the most prolific if strikers, the player is renowned for his passing and technical ability, and could play as a second striker or playmaker behind two forwards.

Despite spending big in the position in January, it's thought that Dalglish is keen on strengthening his strikeforce further at Liverpool in the summer.


Footylatest claim that Damien Comolli, director of football strategy at Anfield, will hope to bring Lavezzi to the club in the summer after recent results showed the front-line was lacking at Liverpool when injuries hit.

It's thought that the player would cost in the region of €23 million, although Liverpool would look to negotiate a lesser fee for the player nicknamed 'El Pocho'.
