Italian media outlet Tuttosport claim Reds boss Jurgen Klopp is keen to sign Empoli’s Riccardo Saponara, a midfielder who is rated at £14m by the Serie A side.
Quietly going about their business, Liverpool have improved drastically after the appointment of Klopp and have won three consecutive matches at the time of writing; turning things around after three draws on the bounce for the Reds.
Klopp’s works is not done at Anfield though and the fans are excitedly preparing for his first transfer window in charge, where it appears 23-year-old Saponara is one of his top targets in the New Year.
