Liverpool and Chelsea have been told to pay £18m for wantaway Paris Saint-Germain attacking midfielder Javier Pastore, according to the reports from France.
The 28-year-old attacker has been looking to leave the Paris Saint-Germain to turn his career back on the tracks.
With the emergence of French wonderkid Adrien Rabiot, and already established stars Marco Verratti, Julian Draxler and Thiago Motta, first-team appearances have been far and few between.
Premier League duo are both long-term admirers of Argentinian. However, they face competition from Serie A giants Inter Milan, according to L’Equipe reports.
Paris Saint-Germain chief Nasser Al-Khelaifi is keen on recouping a decent figure from Pastore’s sale to make Financial Fair Play regulations.
The French club stunned the footballing world by completing two mega transfers of Neymar and Kylan Mbappe.
They smashed the transfer record by paying £200m for Brazilian superstar, while Mbappe will make the permanent switch for £177m after the end of the season.
Pastore made the switch to Ligue 1 giants back in 2011 as one of the club’s first marquee signings.
Chelsea and Liverpool still remain admirers of the Argentinean attacker, and they are keen on to lure him in the Premier League in January.
