Liverpool are ready to set up a swap deal for Lille striker Moussa Sow. Le Parisen says Lille's determination to sign Joe Cole on a permanent deal could see Sow head in the opposite direction.

Cole, who is on loan at Lille, would join the French champions in part exchange for their Senegal striker, who is on duty with his country at the Africa Cup of Nations.

Sow is also interesting Tottenham and Arsenal.
