Javier Pastore

Argentine playmaker Javier Pastore was one of PSG’s first big-money signings, sourced from Palermo for a whopping £35million in 2011.

But the midfielder has struggled under the weight of his lofty price-tag in the Parisian capital, contributing just four goals and six assists to PSG’s Ligue 1 title-winning campaign last season.

Under new boss Laurent Blanc, Pastore has made just five starts this season, and is yet to claim a single goal or assist.

According to reports, he’s now set for a January departure, as the Ligue 1 champions look to continue adding to their stellar cast and make a name for themselves in the Champions League.

And despite the 24 year-old’s hot and cold form, a number of Premier League clubs, including Liverpool, are reportedly planning taking a punt on the Argentina international in the coming transfer window.

For the Reds, Pastore would fill the No.10 role behind Luis Suarez, and there’s no doubt the Uruguayan would benefit from the PSG man’s playmaking services.

He could be available in January for as little as £17million according to the British press.
