Liverpool may have been handed a boost in their attempts to sign PSG forward Ezequiel Lavezzi.

According to the Telegraph, the Ligue 1 champions have been eyeing up Benfica winger Nicolas Gaitan as a potential replacement for the Argentine.

Brendan Rodgers has been a long-term admirer of Lavezzi having tried to sign him from Napoli in 2012 – only to miss out on him to PSG.

On the cheap

And it would appear that should Liverpool look to sign the 29-year-old they would be able to do so for a minimal fee of just £8 million.

The Argentine international has just 18 months on his contract having failed to agree a deal with Les Parisiens last summer.

Borini to stay?

And with Gaitan three years his junior he presents a more long-term prospect for success at the Parc des Princes.

But despite daily reports of attacking talent being linked with Anfield moves, striker Fabio Borini wants to stay on Merseyside.

According to his agent, Marco De Marchi, Borini will be turning down all transfer offers so that he can continue in his pursuit of a starting place at Anfield.
