Samuel Eto’o is on standby to complete a shock move to Liverpool.
Mario Balotelli arrived on Merseyside to try to complete a £16million move to Anfield but, if the deal collapses, he will be replaced by the Cameroon striker
the former Chelsea striker had a Liverpool medical in Paris on Friday.
Eto’o, 33, who lives in the French capital, has verbally agreed a 12-month deal with Liverpool and is waiting for the green light to jet into Merseyside to seal his move.
One of Eto’o’s main motivations for returning to the Barclays Premier League is to prove Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho wrong for calling him an ‘old man’ earlier this year.
The striker later branded Mourinho a ‘fool’.
