Liverpool are chasing PSG striker Kevin Gameiro. The Telegraph says Reds boss Brendan Rodgers had originally lined up the Frenchman as an alternative to Chelsea striker Danny Sturridge, in case the deal for the England striker faltered.

But he is now keen to add even more striking power to his ranks and hopes to sign Gameiro as well to revamp his attacking options.

The 25 year-old would be a versatile addition to the squad, able to play in a variety of forward roles. His age also fits the profile of the club's American owners, who have made it clear they do not want to sanction expensive deals for players in their late twenties or thirties.
