Liverpool and Everton could be about to offer QPR outcast Stephane Mbia the chance to stay in English football.
The midfielder is out of contract at Loftus Road at the end of the month and it is unlikely that he will sign an extension in west London.
He spent the whole of last season on loan at Sevilla and impressed in Spain, starring in the side's Europa League glory, scoring in each leg of the semi-final and successfully converting a penalty in the winning shoot-out against Benfica.
A permanent deal at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan is a possibility but now according to French radio station RMC Sports, Liverpool and Everton are considering offers for the Cameroon midfielder.
It has been suggested that both Merseyside rivals are lining up one-year deals for the 28-year-old, who is currently competing at the World Cup in Brazil.
