Liverpool in frame for two south Americans

PSG hint at Edinson Cavani and Ezequiel Lavezzi exits as Liverpool and Man Utd ready bids.

PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN may have dropped a significant hint that Manchester United and Liverpool targets Edinson Cavani and Ezequiel Lavezzi will be leaving Parc des Princes this summer.

The club have released an advertising campaign for the launch of next season's third kit, and both Cavani and Lavezzi are nowhere to be seen.

The picture features an array of stars including Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Yohan Cabaye, Thiago Silva and new £50m signing David Luiz but their coveted forwards don't appear.

Another significant absentee is Javier Pastore who has been linked with his own move away from the Parisian side.

Some will claim the World Cup stars were away on international duty for the pictures, but the inclusion of two Brazilian stars - who played in a third-place play-off - dispel any such argument.

It seems strange that their prized asset Cavani, who only signed one-year-ago for a club record fee of £50m is excluded from the launch.

The pair's absence has sent ripples throughout Europe, and signals that PSG are prepared to offload players to secure the signing of Angel Di Maria.

Laurent Blanc and his side are desperate to land the Argentine star, but face severe repercussions if they breach Financial Fair Play regulations again.

The club already received a £20m fine last year, and that promises to increase in severity if they violate Fifa's imposed rules for the second successive season.

An absence from a kit launch has already foretold a players club exit this summer.

Cesc Fabregas didn't feature in any of Barcelona's campaigns, and shortly made his £30m move to Chelsea.

The news boosts Liverpool's hopes of signing a striker capable of emulating Barcelona convert Luis Suarez.

Brendan Rodgers is acutely aware of his need to bolster Liverpool's attacking options, with Daniel Sturridge, Rickie Lambert and Fabio Borini as their only recognised strikers.

Furthermore the £75m cash injection generated by the sale of Suarez is proof that Liverpool have the financial ability to procure his services.
