Liverpool fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are getting restless as their chances of signing a top new goalkeeper fade after talkSPORT revealed that Atalanta’s star goalkeeper Marco Sportiello is happy in Serie A.
The 22-year-old is considered as a sensation in Italy and it is no shock to hear that Liverpool are right on his tail.
The Reds are alongside several other clubs who have been tracking the goalkeeper’s progress after he has made 26 appearances in Serie A.
Liverpool fans in the Tavern hoped their presence would entice the youngster into a move to Anfield.
But despite the luxuries of moving to Merseyside, the youngster insists he is happy exactly where he is.
“Liverpool definitely are a great team”, Sportiello said.
“We are talking about one of the top clubs in the world but I am happy to be here. This is my first season as a regular starter and I also signed a new contract with Atalanta.”
