Former Liverpool boss Roy Evans admits he tried to sign Argentine legend Gabriel Batistuta.

Batistuta notched more than 200 goals in Italian football for Fiorentina, Roma and Inter Milan.

"There were talks of him moving from Italy to somewhere else," Evans told

"We had an interest; there were some conversations between Liverpool and his club. He was interested, but unfortunately it just didn't happen.

"It was one of those things where you make an enquiry and it just didn't go any further than that. I'm sure he would have been a great acquisition for us if we had got him."
