The trio of Premier League clubs represent just a small portion of those interested in Inter Milan defender Andrea Ranocchia, with TalkSport stating the Reds have joined the likes of Newcastle United and Everton in the race for his signature.
27-year-old Ranocchia is tipped to leave the San Siro in January after seeing his first-team action deplete massively, with Roberto Mancini using the Italian for just 70 minutes of Serie A action so far this season.
Former Manchester City boss Mancini is also targeting further additions in January, as his outfit battle to snatch the Scudetto off last year’s double-winners Juventus, which is set to push Ranocchia further towards the exit door.
Jurgen Klopp is keen on the defender as he starts to plot his plans or the January window, his first as Reds boss, with the German looking to make a mark on the Merseyside outfit as quickly as possible.
Liverpool fans at the bar have expressed their desperation to sign a new defender, after becoming unconvinced by the performances of Dejan Lovren and Mamadou Sakho.
Reds supporters, is Ranocchia the man to bolster your defence? Let us know in the comments below!
