Liverpool are considering a shock move for Carlos Tevez as a replacement for Luis Suarez.

The Anfield giants, who tried to sign Tevez when Kenny Dalglish was manager, have the Manchester City marksman on a list of possibles compiled in case Suarez pushes ahead with his bid to leave.

With just a year left on his contract at Eastlands, Tevez could be available to the Reds this summer for as little as £8million.

The biggest stumbling block would be the 29-year-old’s huge wages, said to be around £200,000-a-week.

But the acquisition of Tevez, who scored 17 goals in all competitions last season, would go some way to offsetting the loss of losing £40m-rated Suarez.

Tevez is understood to favour waiting until new City boss Manuel Pellegrini takes charge before deciding on his future, so he can find out whether he remains in the club’s plans.

Deposed champions City have already landed winger Jesus Navas from Sevilla and medfielder Fernandinho from Shakhtar Donetsk for a combined total of £54million.

And they look set to spend again to revamp a squad that finished a distant 11 points behind title winners Manchester United.

Spanish giants Real Madrid and, as we revealed last month, new European champions Bayern Munich are keen on Suarez.

Juventus and Monaco are also watching the situation ready to follow up their interest after the Uruguayan confirmed recently that he wants out.
