The People says Eto'o was demanding £100,000-a-week to join Liverpool and was angling for a two-year contract.
That would make him the highest-paid player at Goodison should manager Roberto Martinez complete his deal.
But incredibly, Eto'o has received a mind-boggling £7m offer to play his football in Qatar next season.
Ideally, he wants to remain in the Premier League - he is not yet ready to see out his final years in the game in the Middle East.
