Liverpool could be in pole position to sign French international winger Jeremy Menez from PSG this January, with the Metro reporting that the 26-year-old is keen on a move to the Premier League.

Menez is stalling on a new contract with the Ligue 1 champions after falling out of favour with new manager Laurent Blanc, and has also been linked with a return to his former club Monaco.

The skillful attacker scored 8 goals and provided 11 assists for PSG last season as they won the title, and had been linked with a £10m move to Liverpool during the summer, though he may now be available for half that price after his relationship with the club has become strained.

Arsenal and Manchester United have tracked the Frenchman in the past, and he could be a useful player for Brendan Rodgers’ side as they look to challenge for a top four place this season.

Liverpool also raided PSG for French centre-back Mamadou Sakho in the summer in an £18m move, and could make it a triple swoop if they also come in for Argentine playmaker Javier Pastore in the winter transfer window as well.

The Reds may be short on the flanks next season if they fail to keep loan star Victor Moses on a permanent deal from Chelsea.
