The Reds chiefs are eager to seal the deal but it is still uncertain club boss Jurgen Klopp would sanction a deal for a midfielder, having landed the pair of Naby Keita and Fabinho last summer.

Additional reports from French news channel, L'Equipe claim the Catalan giants have also held discussions with the French champions, over a potential bid for Rabiot in the coming transfer window.

The report further explained that Rabiot’s £55,000-a-week salary, which is lower to other squad members at PSG is the main reason the Frenchman wants to leave.

At the moment, Rabiot is still considering his next move, but he will be free to hold talks with potential suitors when the winter transfer window opens in January.

But the report suggests PSG are unwilling to see Rabiot move to Barcelona due to Barcelona after relations existing between the two clubs over Neymar's switch to the French capital.

A move that will likely see Liverpool emerge tops if they back their words with a formal offer come January 2019.

According to The Mirror, the Liverpool defence ace was involved in a nasty tackle with Clarets defender Ben Mee in the 23rd minute and was forced to take an early shower.

The injury was greeted with hot exchange of words by the pair of Jurgen Klopp and Sean Dyche on the touchline as Gomez was stretched off.
