The Argentina forward has been linked with an exit for a while, having sulked his way through this season. Blanc last selected him for a game on 14 December (Lavezzi has just two goals this season) and he failed to report for a training camp in Morocco earlier this month.

The 29-year-old is linked to clubs across Europe.

Fabian Delph could be sold by Aston Villa this month and is available for £4m, according to the Daily Mirror.

The England international is out of contract in the summer and Villa don't want to risk losing him for free. Tottenham are also interested but are not prepared to meet Delph's £60,000-a-week demands.

THE DEAL'S OFF...

Napoli chief Aurelio De Laurentiis has told Sky Sport 24 that star striker Gonzalo Higuain is not for sale. Liverpool had been linked with a £30m offer, but De Laurentiis said: "I have no intention of selling.

"We are strengthening the team and will buy other reinforcements. We have to do this in a methodical manner, not by chance."

Brendan Rodgers has insisted there will be no mass exodus from the club this summer. Glen Johnson, Jon Flanagan, Kolo Toure and Brad Johnson are all free agents in the summer, but Rodgers wants to keep the majority of those, at least for squad depth.

Arsenal are set to beat Liverpool in the race for Fiorentina goalkeeper Norberto Neto, according to the Daily Mirror.

The Brazilian, 25, is seen as a superior option to both Simon Mignolet and WOjciech Szczesny.
