The PSG forward is reportedly a target for Jurgen Klopp’s side, with fellow suitors Las Palmas believing they are priced out of a move for the Spaniard
Las Palmas president Miguel Angel Ramirez believes Liverpool, Milan and Roma are all ‘ready to pay’ to sign Jese Rodriguez from PSG.
The Spanish forward is a native of Las Palmas, and Ramirez would love him at his hometown club, but feels that the La Liga side will be priced out of the market for the 23-year-old.

Jese moved to Paris in August for €25 million, but has only made nine appearance for Unai Emery’s side, with PSG’s chairman hinting that a January exit could be on the cards.
Ramirez has set his sights on bringing Jese back to Las Palmas, but despite his admiration, believes a move to Liverpool or Italy seems most likely.
“Jese Rodriguez is a great footballer,” Ramirez told Las Provincia.
“He wants to come to Las Palmas, but he is owned by PSG and earns a salary that is of his level – and that is very high.
“Liverpool, Milan and Roma want Jese and are ready to pay what he earns. We cannot afford that salary.
“With respect to other clubs, we are at a disadvantage and hence we have to wait. But we don’t want to create false expectations.”
Jese played 38 times for Real Madrid last season, scoring six goals in all competitions as he helped Zinedine Zidane’s side to the Champions League trophy.
However, he has scored only once since moving to PSG and looks likely to leave the club in January.
