Liverpool make offer for Napoli's 20m-rated Argentina striker Lavezzi
Ezequiel Lavezzi's agent insists Liverpool have made a concrete offer to sign the Napoli attacking midfielder. The clubs are set to meet to discuss the 24-year-old Argentina international's move to Anfield, according to his representative, Eduardo Rossetto. Lavezzi, who has also been linked with a £20million to Manchester City, paved the way for an exit from the Italians last week by writing an open letter to fans in which he claims to have been treated with a lack of respect by the club. After claims from Napoli that there had been no offer, Marino told the 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 force 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. 'Ezequiel has tried several times to speak to Marino but he has received no response. If Napoli have decided to take this extreme position, so will we.' Lavezzi, who joined Napoli in the summer of 2007, scored seven goals for the Serie A club in the recently completed season.
