The agent of Napoli's Ezequiel Lavezzi has claimed Liverpool have made a concrete bid for the Argentine striker.
Lavezzi, who has made no secret of his desire to quit the Serie A outfit, has also courted attention from Manchester City.
He wrote an open letter to fans last week complaining that the club had shown him a lack of respect.
Now agent Eduardo Rossetto has claimed that a move to Anfield is a real possibility, telling Gazzetta dello Sport: "There is a definite proposal from Liverpool.
"The one thing I can say, that so far I have kept confidential, is that (Napoli general manager Pierpaolo) Marino met twice with the Fifa agent Pablo Cosentino, who invited him to set a meeting in either Liverpool or Naples with the British club."
Asked if the meeting had taken place, Rossetto said: "No. And we do not want to compel Napoli to sell the player.
"But I think it is appropriate that the club consider the offer: to judge that it is either sufficient or insufficient."
