The Liverpool Echo says their previously ailing hopes of landing Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Javier Pastore on loan have received a boost as he now looks certain to make a temporary switch in January.
The Argentinian was one of the club's first big-money signings after they were taken over by the Qatar Investment Authority in 2011 and he has previously stated that he was opposed to any move away from Paris.
However, sources in Italy claim the 24-year-old is reconsidering his options as he wants regular first-team football ahead of the World Cup in Brazil in the summer.
