Javier Pastore (Paris St. Germain) Loan
From being a promising youngster to yet another failed talent, Paris St. Germain’s Javier Pastore hasn’t exactly set the world alight in Ligue 1. He has struggled to get into the team on a regular basis and has managed just seven league starts and five substitute appearances this season. The Daily Star have linked Pastore with a loan move to the Premier League, and Liverpool have been rumored to be interested in the Argentine playmaker.
Brendan Rodgers’s could look to sign him on loan, with a summer transfer in case he’s able to adapt to life in the Premier League. While he may cost Liverpool upward of € 20.5 million in case they want to make the deal permanent, he has the creativity and drive to fill the hole that has been left by Steven Gerrard’s decision to drop into a deeper role.
Pastore has so far failed to score this season, but the midfielder has created (as per squawka) 10 chances and has an 83% pass accuracy to go with it. His pass length of an average 18m describes his eye for a long ball over the defenders head, which would certainly add a new flair to the Reds’ attacking threat.
