Liverpool are reportedly on the verge of a £13million bid for Fernando Cavenaghi of Bordeaux. The Argentina international could be a replacement for Dirk Kuyt who Reds boss Rafael Benitez is keen to offload for a more prolific goal scorer.

The 25-year old is thought to be keen on a move to England, joining compatriots such as Carlos Tevez and Javier Mascherano in the Premier League.
