Metro have done the impossible and managed to put a smile on the faces of Liverpool fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they claim a player of note might actually want to join the Reds.
According to the publication, Ezequiel Lavezzi is edging closer to a move to Anfield after rejecting a new contract with Paris Saint-Germain.
The Parisian side are desperate for cash and would be willing to accept improved offer from Brendan Rodgers who has already made a bid of just under £18 million for the Argentine international.
The majority of punters here in the tavern think that Lavezzi could well be a truly adequate replacement for Luis Suarez in terms of his agility, trickery and balance.
More importantly, he would be willing to allow Daniel Sturridge to shine in the middle of the park as the out-and-out front-man.
Liverpool fans. Would you love Liverpool to swoop for Lavezzi? Is he the top class player you need to finally land a title and make headway in the Champions League? Let us know your thoughts below.
