Liverpool are set to revive their interest in former Chelsea striker Samuel Eto'o after Juventus moved into pole position for Monaco's Radamel Falcao, but face stiff competition from Tottenham and Everton for the Cameroonian's signature.
Brendan Rodgers is still searching for a new striker after selling Luis Suarez to Barcelona despite signing the likes of Rickie Lambert and Divock Origi.
Queens Park Rangers star Loic Remy came close to joining the Reds before a deal collapsed, leaving Rodgers empty-handed as the end of the transfer window looms.
The ex-Swansea boss has been looking at Colombia international Radamel Falcao, who looks set to leave Monaco on a season-long loan albeit for an astronomical fee believed to be £10million.
However, late interest from Juventus looks set to end Rodgers' dream, and according to reports, the Anfield gaffer is ready to move once again for free agent Eto'o.
The 33-year-old has already rejected an approach from Liverpool, with the former Barcelona star determined to secure a lucrative one-year contract.
Tottenham and Everton have also held talks with Eto'o, but Rodgers is tempted to conclude his hunt by giving in to the forward's demands, allowing him to focus solely on his side's Premier League campaign after securing a hard-fought 2-1 win over Southampton at the weekend.
Ajax have also expressed an interest in signing Eto'o, but it is believed the ex-Anzhi man would prefer to stay in England.
