Liverpool prepare bid for Italian playmaker

klopppeeeLiverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern are discussing the latest transfer rumours regarding their club and have had their heads turned by a developing story from the continent.

TalkSport, via La Nazione, state that the Reds are preparing a swoop to bring Empoli playmaker Riccardo Saponara to Anfield next summer.

Jurgen Klopp is keen to add to his attacking contingent next year but Empoli do not want to sell the 23-year-old in January, though they’re braced for a wealth of offers at the end of the season.

Saponara has been on fine form this season, scoring four goals and providing nine assists to the struggling Serie A side, and it’s clear he’s set for bigger things with Italian giants Juventus and Roma both tracking the midfielder.

Liverpool will hope to beat both Italian clubs to the player’s signature next summer though and their offer could be aided by potential Champions League football, with a top-four finish the aim for Klopp’s Anfield outfit.
