Liverpool transfer news: Ezequiel Lavezzi emerges as £18m target - reports
The Argentina international could arrive at Anfield following the collapse of the move for Loic Remy
Ezequiel Lavezzi has emerged as an £18m target for Liverpool, according to reports.
Brendan Rodgers remains on the hunt for attacking talents following the £75m departure of talisman and last season's Premier League golden boot winner Luis Suarez.
The Reds had been on the verge of adding France international Loic Remy to their ranks but the deal collapsed amid concerns over the QPR striker's medical.
That has led Rodgers to look elsewhere, with his gaze landing on Argentina international Lavezzi according to the Daily Express.

It's claimed that the former Napoli player could be off-loaded by Paris St Germain to make way for his compatriot Angel Di Maria, who is expected to arrive from Real Madrid. The French champions must be wary of their overall outlay after being sanctioned by Uefa for breaking Financial Fair Play rules.
Lavezzi scored nine goals in 32 Ligue 1 appearances last term and has notched seven goals in 19 Champions League appearances since joining the club for £24m. He was also a part of the Argentina squad that reached the World Cup final.
