The Reds are expected to be busy in this summer transfer window, with Jurgen Klopp rebuilding the squad he inherited from Brendan Rodgers.

He has already completed three signings, as Joel Matip, Mark Grujic and Loris Karius have already signing on at Anfield.

A striker could also be on their wish list, with rumours this week linking Liverpool to Napoli striker Gonzalo Higuain.

However, it appears that another South American hit man could be on their list and that is PSG forward Edinson Cavani.

According to TuttoMercatoWeb, the French champions are pushing hard to convince him into agreeing a new deal with Zlatan Ibrahimovic departing.

Cavani is not 100% persuaded though and is instead interested in making a move to a more competitive league, such as the Premier League, and that has alerted Liverpool.

The report fails to name a price for his services, but does say that the Reds would face competition from Champions League finalists Atletico Madrid for the player.
