BY foxsports • August 24, 2011

Liverpool's Pacheco was previously thought to be due to undergo a medical on Monday ahead of a season-long loan but the club's sport director Felipe Minambres said on Tuesday this has not yet taken place. However, he insisted the club are hopeful of sealing a deal for the promising striker to return to his homeland before the weekend. He added the club have Paraguay international Santa Cruz also on their radar and they are awaiting a response from Manchester City. He told EFE: "The Paraguayan is in a group of players that have interested us for a long time. We have presented an offer to City and now we await the answer." But Minambres believes the club will miss out on another target - Juventus winger Iago Falque. He added: "The agent says this is very difficult because they have received an interesting offer from England."
