Liverpool are reportedly still in contention to make a deadline-beating bid for Paris Saint-Germain striker Ezequiel Lavezzi.

The Anfield club were handed a major boost in their pursuit of Lavezzi after rivals Napoli pulled out of the running, leaving Liverpool as the clear favourites for the Argentine's signature.

Laurent Blanc is thought to be willing to let the forward go after disciplining him for missing a winter training camp, and according to the Independent a £14 million bid could be enough to secure the 29-year-old's services.

Whether or not the Reds can get a deal done before the transfer deadline remains to be seen.
