Cape Town - Liverpool are considering a move for PSG striker Ezequiel Lavezzi, who will cost the club just £8 million in January.

PSG are willing to let the Argentine international leave for a relative bargain in January according to the Express.

The Anfield club are desperately seeking a striker to ease their goal-scoring woes since Luis Suarez' departure and Daniel Sturridge's fitness issues.

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has been linked with several star names following Mario Balotelli, Fabio Borini and Rickie Lambert's poor early season form. 

Liverpool have been interested in Lavezzi since 2012 when PSG signed the striker from Napoli.

Reports now suggest PSG are willing to offload Lavezzi for a fee of £8 million with the intention to improve their FFP rating due to Lavezzi's wages of £3.5 million a year.

PSG will attempt to bring  Benfica winger Nicolas Gaitan to Paris if indeed Lavezzi departs this month.
