Liverpool consider summer offer for Argentina winger

Liverpool are considering a bid for Benfica ace Eduardo Salvio at the end of the season, Metro reports.

According to sources from Portugal, the Reds are extremely keen on bringing Salvio to Anfield this summer, and are hoping that any potential transfer does not get scuppered by new regulations that are set to be introduced in regards to obtaining a work permit.

It is said that players from outside of the European Union are required to match a certain criteria based on their international caps, which could break down negotiations as the 24-year-old has only featured five times for Argentina.

However the Reds have been boosted by the news that FA chairman Greg Dyke intends to make it so that any player costing more than £10million will be granted as an exception.

Liverpool can look into how Arsenal pushed through their transfer of Gabriel Paulista, with the former Villarreal star still uncapped for Brazil.

Salvio will be a welcomed addition to the squad, as club captain Steven Gerrard is set to leave to LA Galaxy at the end of the season.
