Liverpool are threatening Torino's hopes of landing St Etienne fullback Faouzi Ghoulam.

Toro believed they had a deal struck for the Algeria international left-back last week.

However, Sky Italia says negotiations have stalled after Liverpool made a late move for the 22 year-old.

Ghoulam has agreed personal terms with the Reds and now it's a straight auction between Liverpool and Torino to convince St Etienne to sell.
