Liverpool are considering signing PSG striker Kevin Gameiro on loan, during the January transfer window, according to the Telegraph.
The France international has fallen down Carlo Ancelotti's pecking order, especially after the arrival of Zlatan Ibrahimovic in the summer. The 25-year-old has started just three league games for his club this season, scoring five times.
Gameiro's versatile nature of playing anywhere up front, along with his relatively young age, fits into the transfer plans of Liverpool owner John Henry, who earlier revealed the club would not be spending heavily in this window. The Reds are already set to complete a deal for Chelsea striker Daniel Sturridge, as the England international has reportedly completed his medical at Anfield and agreed personal terms for a switch to Merseyside in January.
Rodgers has made no secret of his desire to find a striking partner for Liverpool talisman Luis Suarez in January, with the Reds remaining interested in Barcelona's David Villa. Contract rebels Theo Walcott of Arsenal and Fernando Llorente of Athletic Bilbao have also been linked with Liverpool in recent months.
PSG Denies Cole Talks
Meanwhile, PSG sporting director Leonardo has dismissed rumours that Chelsea defender Ashley Cole would move to Parc des Princes either in January or at the end of this season.
The 31-year-old has less than six months left on his current contract with the Blues, and with the player failing to agree on an extension, he could leave Stamford Bridge as a free agent in the summer.
In addition to Cole, PSG was also linked to Inter Milan playmaker Wesley Sneijder. The Dutchman has not featured for the Nerazzurri for three months, after pay disputes with the club.
"We have never spoken with Ashley Cole, there has never been any contact. Carlo was his coach at Chelsea, that's why that story is doing the rounds," Leonardo explained.
"Sincerely, we have never contacted Wesley Sneijder to come to PSG - we have five players in his position already, The PSG chief added.
