Liverpool are making efforts to take advantage of a Bosman at French side Paris Saint Germain to add to their squad in order to further press for a title win this season.

The Merseyside club have openly declared their mission to win a title this season as they are yet to win any in many years as well as the lack of trophies in Jurgen Klopp’s three years in charge of the club.

Having secured the likes of James Milner and Joel Matip for free from heir club in recent time, the Reds are looking forward to doing the same with Andrien Rabiot who is also out of contract with the French giants at the end of this season.

The Bosman laws allow a player to pen a deal with a club of his wish as early as January 1 if his contract expects to expire at the end of the season.

Also, Marca reports that Liverpool are close to a deal with another Bosman at Atletic Bilbao named Iker Muniain whose contract expires in 2019 as well to replace out-of-favour striker Divock Origi.

The forward has been on the scene for the Spanish side since 16 years of age and has since scored 51 goals in all for Bilbao to his name.
