The Merseyside club are also chasing Radamel Falcao, but see Cavani as an adequate alternative.

And according to German news publication Bild, Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is already preparing a bid in order to bring the Uruguayan hitman to Anfield.

Recently Cavani’s agent Claudio Anelluci confirmed Liverpool did make a previous enquiry, but at the time the 27-year-old striker was still considering his options.

“There has been much interest in the player during the last six months,” he said.

“I can confirm that Cavani heard proposals from Liverpool and Arsenal.

“Already said he would love to play in England, but has not yet made a final decision.”

Arsenal have also firmly upped their interest in Cavani, reportedly preparing a £51million bid to sign the former Napoli man last week.

Cavani made 43 appearances for PSG last season, scoring 25 goals.
