Liverpool reportedly still want to sign Samuel Eto’o despite the imminent arrival of Mario Balotelli.
The Cameroon striker is a free agent after being released by Chelsea and the Reds are still keen to sign him.
Liverpool opened talks with the striker earlier this month and are frontrunners to sign him after talks with Ajax Amsterdam reportedly broke down.
Everton are also claimed to be in the running, but Liverpool’s Champions League participation could give Brendan Rodgers' side the notch.
The only stumbling block are the 33-year-old's high wage demands, but Sky Italia understand Eto’o’s move is edging closer after fresh negotiations were held.
Eto’o scored nine goals in 21 Premier League games for Chelsea last season.
