The Reds have reportedly identified the Ivorian as their prime target in January.
Liverpool have turned their well-known interest in Lille ace Gervinho into an official offer in the region of €12.5m, according to tuttomercatoweb.com.
French outfit Lille were believed to be demanding €15m for the player, but due to good relations between the two sides, it appears they have now lowered their asking price. (IMScouting)
Roy Hodgson has been searching for attacking options and this source believes the Liverpool boss has found his man. Lille striker Gervinho has netted seven goals and set up another five as he has helped his side to the top of the Ligue 1 table as the French league went into its winter break.
Aston Villa had been said to be interested in the 23 year old Ivory Coast man but clearly Gerard Houllier’s start as Villa Park has been even poorer than Hodgsin’s at Liverpool and it seems that the former Le Mans and Beveren man could be on his way to Merseyside.
Gervinho can play in a traditional role of as part of a front two but is probably most effective as a very direct winger.
