Liverpool target denied entry to PSG stadium

Liverpool transfer target Javier Pastore was mistakenly denied entry to Paris St Germain's stadium last weekend, according to French newspaper Le 10 Sport.

The report claims Pastore - who was not part of the match-day squad - was initially not allowed into the Parc des Princes prior to kick-off in the match against Bastia.

The Argentina international had a valid ticket, but the steward did not recognise the PSG star and refused him access.

The issue was eventually resolved a few minutes later and Pastore watched on as PSG beat Bastia 4-0 but the report suggests the story is indicative of Pastore's situation in the French capital.

He's out of favour in Paris under new boss Laurent Blanc, and seems to be exiled from the first-team squad. As the report says, it seems like his place is no longer in Paris St Germain with clubs reportedly lining up to offer him an escape route.

One of the first signings under the new Qatari regime in Paris, the QSI take-over group paid €42m to bring him to the club from Italy.

But he's been strongly linked with an exit in the January transfer window - Liverpool and Arsenal have been mentioned as possible suitors.

Reds boss Brendan Rodgers wanted to bring a creative playmaker to Anfield during the summer, and came close to sealing a deal for Brazilian attack Willian.

But he eventually snubbed Liverpool and joined Chelsea before the transfer deadline.
