According to reports, Liverpool are very keen on Italian Sergio Tonali, and the latest news has caused debate between Liverpool fans.
SportMediaSet are reporting via footballitalia, that Serie A giants Inter Milan are currently favourites to sign the player and have already offered Brescia £35 million.
The centre midfielder has had a solid season in Italy’s top flight, managing one goal and five assists, via WhoScored, whilst also averaging 2.1 key passes per game and 1.4 successful dribbles a game.
He also looks to be able to help out the defence as well, as he has averaged so far 1.2 tackles a game and one interception a game. One fan even compared him to an Italian legend as he said, ‘Young Pirlo’.
These are very good statistics for a 19 year-old playing in a top division and could be a great signing for Liverpool’s future. Captain Jordan Henderson is 29 years-old which is still young, via WhoScored, but bringing in someone like the Italian would give the captain some rest if needed when he gets a bit older and also add some great squad depth to a strong side whilst maintaining the Reds dominance at the top of England’s top flight.
Here is what fans have said about the rumours:
