Liverpool would like to sign Sevilla defender Federico Fazio during the current transfer window, but will need to offer in excess of €6M for the Argentine.

According to Seville-based daily Estadio Deportivo, Liverpool have put Fazio at the top of their list of potential defensive reinforcements after learning he could leave Los Rojiblancos for the right price.

Liverpool have indicated they are willing to pay €4M for the defender, but Sevilla have insisted such an amount is not good enough.

Indeed, the Spanish giants turned down an offer of €6M from Bundesliga outfit Hoffenheim for Fazio.


And to have any chance of making progress with a swoop for the Argentina international, Liverpool must better the German side’s bid.

Fazio has played in 12 of Sevilla’s La Liga matches so far this season, chipping in with three goals for good measure too.

Capped twice for Argentina, the 25-year-old is only under contract with Los Rojiblancos until 2014 however.
