David Villa is considering three offers from Premier League clubs as he appears on the verge of leaving Barcelona this summer.
Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur have been credited with keen interest in the Spanish international for a number of months, with the Gunners thought to have gained an advantage after beating their north London rivals to fourth and a Champions League spot last season.
But Spain's all-time leading goal scorer is reportedly still considering all options that come his way, including an audacious effort from Liverpool, Spanish daily Sport report.
The former Real Zaragoza and Valencia forward has accepted that he must move on from the Nou Camp in order to secure first team football ahead of the 2014 World Cup, a need that has been heightened following the arrival of Brazilian international Neymar earlier this week.
Arsene Wenger's side were heavily linked with a move for the forward during the January transfer window, until Barcelona's insistence that the 31-year-old saw out the remainder of the campaign poured cold water over the prospect.
It is suggested that Barcelona will allow Villa to move to any club, providing their €14m asking price is met. Arsenal's continued participation in the Champions League suggests they remain favourites to sign the forward, although Marca suggest the winners of Villa signature could come down to who is willing to meet his salary of £130,000 a week.
While Liverpool's seventh placed finish last season, a circumstance that ensures they miss out on even Europa League football next campaign, suggests they are the most unfancied destination of the three, the club will be keen to secure an established presence up front is signed should Luis Suarez leave the club.
The Uruguayan international is close to leaving Anfield, suggesting he needs a change of environment for the benefit of his family and image, after being "persecuted" by the British press.
The forward's imminent departure could explain Liverpool's reported interest in Villa, however unsuccessful their efforts may prove to be.
