Liverpool have been cleared to sign Jeremy Menez in the January transfer window after he was kicked out of the PSG side.
Reds boss Brendan Rodgers is known to be a long-term fan of Menez, who was linked with a £10million move to Anfield over the summer.
The France international ended up staying put, but he now looks almost certain to depart PSG when the window opens after a row with manager Laurent Blanc.
Menez stormed off the bench and made his way home in the closing stages of PSG's Champions League win over Benfica - after Blanc refused to bring him on.Blanc has now reportedly banned the player from first-team training, and Liverpool are now ready to swoop in January to take him away from Ligue 1.
Rodgers is thought to be preparing a £5million bid, and despite interest from former club Monaco, the 26-year-old would prefer a switch to the Premier League.
Arsenal and Manchester United have previously been linked with Menez who scored eight goals last season and picked up 11 assists as PSG won the French league.
