Liverpool to consider Eto'o if Striker deal collapse

Samuel Eto'o was undergoing a medical with Liverpool on Friday afternoon ahead of signing a one-year deal

The 33-year-old was subjected to late interest from Liverpool's Merseyside rivals Everton, but Roberto Martinez could not do enough to keep Eto'o away from Anfield's clutches. Everton reportedly offered Eto'o a two-year deal, but the lure of Champions League football with Brendan Rodgers's men was too tempting to turn down.

Eto'o reportedly underwent a medical with Liverpool representatives outside of the United Kingdom and is expected to complete his move before the Reds take on Manchester City on Monday night. It is likely that he won't be registered in time to play against Manuel Pellegrini's side.

The Cameroon veteran will join on a free transfer after Jose Mourinho decided against offering him the chance to stay at Chelsea for a second season. Eto'o scored 12 goals for Chelsea after signing from Anzhi Makhachkala last summer but his relationship with Mourinho broke down after the manager joked about his age.
