Kop boss Brendan Rodgers thinks he has a good chance of luring the 28-year-old Holland star to the Premier League - even though Inter have already accepted an £8.2million deal from the Turkish side.
Sneijder, who has fallen out with Inter bosses, is stalling on the Gala deal because he would prefer to play in England - and Liverpool are ready to offer him the chance.
Wages are a problem - Sneijder is on £160,000 a week at the San Siro.
Sneijder is currently on more than Steven Gerrard is earning at Anfield but, given that low transfer fee, Rodgers believes he can land a top star comparatively cheaply.
Kop managing director Ian Ayre has been in talks with Liverpool's Boston-based owners in the last 24 hours to see if a deal is feasible.
