Reds could land Argentine for as little as £7m.
Liverpool have identified Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez as a potential replacement for Luis Suarez should the Uruguayan leave the club this summer, reports Goal.com.
The Reds are eyeing up Udinese striker Luis Muriel as a possible replacement for Suarez, who wants to force through a move to La Liga giants Real Madird.
But Man City’s Tevez has also emerged as a shock target for boss Brendan Rodgers.
The Anfield club have reportedly long admired Tevez, who could be available for as little as £7m this summer.
City are reportedly ready to take a huge hit on the 29-year-old, who has just one-year remaining on his current deal but cost the club £25m in 2009.
Liverpool would not be able to match Tevez’s £100,000-a-week wages but would be able to offer the Argentinian international a long-term deal and a guaranteed starting role.
City are planning a major overhaul this summer, with Fernandinho and Jesus Navas already signed and Manuel Pellegrini expected to be confirmed as boss imminently.
Juventus have also been linked with a move for Tevez and have reportedly already agreed personal terms with the former West Ham and Manchester United forward.
