Liverpool could capitalise on the uncertainty surrounding Paris Saint-Germain forward Jese’s future and sign the player as early as this month, say Marca.
The 23-year-old has struggled to adapt to life at the French champions after a big-money summer move from Real Madrid and he is set to leave the club in the January transfer window. In fact, he’s only notched twice for his new club, although that’s been primarily because of a lack of opportunities.
Jese’s hometown club Las Palmas have been strongly linked with the forward who was involved in Los Blancos’ two Champions League triumphs of the past three seasons, but Las Palmas sporting director Nicolas Ortega recently explained the Spain Under-21 international could be too costly for the islanders.
Marca says money is the only thing that could keep Jese from Las Palmas and while Jese is willing to take a pay cut to complete the move, the Reds are better placed financially for it and PSG could favour their offer.
Middlesbrough are also interested but Jese and his agent are willing to wait and see how the situation develops over the window.
