Liverpool eye move for excellent Serie A star

klopp009Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern raised their eyebrows in surprise this evening, after hearing that Jurgen Klopp is targeting one of Serie A’s finest players.

After seeing his new outfit draw 0-0 with Tottenham Hotspur yesterday, Klopp is said to have targeted Empoli midfielder Riccardo Saponara; with the Italian emerging as a Reds target late last night.

The 23-year-old scored seven times for Empoli last term and has already bagged three goals this season, with Klopp said to be a keen admirer of the versatile former AC Milan ace.

Capable of playing in central-midfield and out-wide, Saponara would be a decent addition for the Reds in the eyes of many of our punters at the bar; believing that the Empoli man would add a boost to their starting line-up as well as vastly improving their squad depth.

Klopp seems set to have a major impact at Anfield, looking likely to change aspects of the side across the board.

Liverpool fans, is Saponara the man to bolster your midfield? Let us know in the comments!
