Liverpool are reportedly looking into the possibility of a deal for Chelsea midfielder Oscar.
The Daily Express claim Jose Mourinho is ready to sell the Brazilian who he has lost trust in, perhaps demonstrated by the face Oscar failed to complete a full 90 minutes for the Blues in any competition since January.
Oscar is in fact one of the Premier League’s most substituted players having failed to nail down a regular starting role at Stamford Bridge.
Mirror Online believe Jose Mourinho has identified West Ham’s Enner Valencia as the ideal replacement for the 23-year-old.
The question then becomes where Oscar will go to make room for the Ecuadorian striker, and the Express say Liverpool was well as Juventus and Paris Saint Germain would be interested in acquiring his services.
Oscar was bought for around £25 million from Brazilian side Internacional in 2012 and the Daily Mail say the Blues are hoping to recoup a substantial profit on the midfielder to help balance the books as they are planning another significant transfer outlay in the summer.
