Former Manchester United striker Carlos Tevez will decide whether to move to Liverpool on Wednesday.

Tevez is expected to leave Juventus this summer following a successful campaign which saw Massimo Allegri's side clinch yet another title.

The Argentine has been courting interest from Atletico Madrid and Boca Juniors but Liverpool are said to be the front-runners to bring Tevez back to the Premier League. AS claim Liverpool could land Tevez for as little as £10m.

According to Italian newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport,the former United and City striker will make a decision over whether he intends to move to Anfield on Wednesday.

Juventus have already lined up Tevez's replacement with United-target Mario Mandzukic seemingly heading out of Athletico Madrid to join the Italians.

Boca Juniors would desperately like to see Tevez rejoin them and see out his career.

The club's president Daniel Angelici said: "The return of Tevez from Juventus depends entirely on his own will.

"The doors of the club are open. It would be a dream, but we’ll have to see if it’s one that can be realised.

"It depends more on the player than the club. We will call Carlos to check and start talking."

Tevez has been a big success in Italy since joining from Manchester City in 2013, scoring 50 goals in just 95 games for the Old Lady.

He had previously scored 107 goals playing for West Ham, Manchester United and City after moving to the Premier League from Corinthians in 2006.

Liverpool have joined Newcastle and Southampton in the race to sign QPR striker Charlie Austin.

Danny Ings has already joined this summer, but Brendan Rodgers wants to add to his attacking options and is considering a move for £15m-rated England international Austin.

Austin scored 18 Premier League goals in 35 appearances for QPR but couldn't prevent them from slipping into the Championship.
