Liverpool are set to face stiff competition from Serie A giants AC Milan for the signature of Paris Saint-Germain playmaker Javier Pastore when the transfer window finally swings open into action again in January, according to reports on talkSPORT.co.uk.

The exciting Argentina international has been attracting the attentions of a whole host of big-name clubs from across the Continent of late, including the likes of both Premier League sides Arsenal and Chelsea.

Pastore, 24, has found himself only being used as a bit-part player at the Parc des Princes so far this season under new PSG head coach Laurent Blanc, with the attacking midfield player having started just the five Ligue 1 outings for the French champions, and he was given the hook in three of those encounters.

However, overall since Pastore moved to the French capital from Serie A outfit Palermo for 39.8 million euros in August 2011, the Argentinian has proved himself to be a fine addition to the Parisians’ big-money squad, with the attacker registering an impressive 24 goals and 16 assists in total in his 90 matches in all competitions for PSG going into this season.

And now Liverpool are set to go head to head with Milan in January in the battle to land Pastore.
