Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish is still hopeful of getting Carlos Tevez on loan – if Manchester City let their rebel star leave before the window shuts, according to reports in the UK press today.

According to the Daily Mirror, Dalglish’s club have made a cheeky approach for the Argentinian who could play for them in their push for the top four and both Cup competitions.

Tevez is currently in dispute with City, so Liverpool have joined the queue of interested parties who would take Tevez on loan, paying his £200,000-a-week wages in the process at the cost of around £5million in rent.

Tevez’s fate will be decided before tomorrow midnight, when the transfer window will close.

The Anfield club are furious at suggestions that misfiring £35million striker Andy Carroll was offered in a swap deal as Dalglish wants him to be in his side for the push on three fronts.
