Liverpool are considering a move in signing Juventus striker Carlos Tevez in the summer, according to the Express.

The report claims the Reds will eye a move for the former Manchester United and Manchester City star as a replacement for Luis Suarez at Anfield, if the Uruguayan international leaves the club in the summer.

Liverpool's leading scorer this season has been reported with a move away from the Merseyside club in the summer. Suarez has been in prolific form for Brendan Rodgers's side in the current campaign, scoring 30 goals from 30 matches.

The 27-year-old's form has attracted interest from nine-time European champions Real Madrid. The Spanish capital club will allow striker Karim Benzema to leave in the summer to raise funds to bring Suarez to Santiago Bernabeu.

Tevez has been successful in England, with his term at West Ham United, United and Manchester City over the years. The Argentine striker left the Etihad club and joined the Italian champions last summer.

Liverpool will get substantial transfer funds, should they allow Suarez to leave the club in the upcoming transfer window. Brendan Rodgers has targeted Tevez as the man to replace the former Ajax man at Anfield, should his star player be tempted with a move away from the Reds.

The 30-year-old could be allowed to leave the Turin club if Juventus receive an offer from the Reds, which would be hard to resist. Tevez has managed 18 goals in 30 league appearances.

Meanwhile, the former Swansea boss has admitted the pressure to win the title this season is on City and Chelsea and not on Liverpool. Rodgers's side sit on top of the table with 80 points from 35 games.

Liverpool face Chelsea in the title showdown at Anfield on Sunday. A defeat for Jose Mourinho's side would mathematically end the Blues chances of winning the title.

"I would be lying if I said I thought at the start of season we could be top of the table at this stage. Pressure? That's what they have at Man City and Chelsea, where they are expected to win the league. I'm enjoying being top of the league. I have never slept better!" Rodgers explained.
