Liverpool and Arsenal show interest in PSG's Pastore
Since his initial arrival in Paris from Palermo, 24-year-old Argentine attacking midfielder, Javier Pastore had been believed opposed to any type of move that would see him leave the Parisian side.
However, since the departure of Carlo Ancelotti to Real Madrid, the South American has seen limited time in the first team and is thought to be looking for a move elsewhere ahead of the World Cup in hopes of securing more first team action.
With a move in mind Pastore has his sights set on England, but that leaves several big name suitors out.
Since he has already been involved in European action this campaign he is ineligible to play for Arsenal, Chelsea or either Manchester City or United and sees Liverpool taking the lead in a chance to sign the player for the run in portion of the campaign.
Steven Gerrard has been ruled out for at least the next month of action or potentially even longer and without having to spend a major outlay in January on a replacement, a loan option would allow for short term cover in the slot of the captain.
There are other reports from TalkSPORT that both Italian club AS Roma and fellow French side Lyon are interested, but the likelihood of PSG allowing him to go on loan to a rival is slight and leaves Liverpool in the believed lead and Roma a close second.
