According to the Metro, Brendan Rodgers’s Reds are in advanced talks to sign the Argentina international and view the winger—who has a £42.6 million release clause written into his contract—as a potential replacement for Raheem Sterling.

However, according to Record, PSG are looking to compete with the Anfield outfit for Salvio’s signature.

Over the last few months, according to ESPN, the French champions have been linked with superstars of the game such as Angel Di Maria and Lionel Messi, but with financial fair-play reducing their spending potential, they may be set to pursue the more modest purchase of Salvio.

The Argentine may well be brought into the club as a replacement for his compatriot, Ezequiel Lavezzi, who has been tipped for the PSG exit door this summer, with Tottenham Hotspur among his suitors, according to TalkSPORT.

According to Le 10 Sport, the Parisians originally made enquiries about Salvio back in 2013 and may well return to get their man two years later.

The right-sider has featured 28 times in the Portuguese top flight this season, scoring nine goals, while he also found the net once in five Champions League outings.
