Liverpool have opened talks over a shock transfer for former Chelsea forward Samuel Eto’o, according to the Daily Mirror.
The 33-year-old is and his representatives are reported to have held talks with Anfield officials, with Brendan Rodgers left to have the final say on whether to offer the free agent a contract.
Dutch club Ajax are also said to be interested, but are a long way off meeting the Cameroon international’s wage demands.
Eto’o fell out with Jose Mourinho last season when the Chelsea boss poked fun at the strikers age.
He is keen to stay in the Premier League, and the chance to join a title rival and prove a point to Mourinho is certainly appealing.
Liverpool have been linked with a number of strikers since the departure of Luis Suarez almost a month ago.
