TalkSport state that Reds target Stephan El Shaarawy will sign for AS Monaco on a permanent basis next summer, after joining on-loan from AC Milan in the summer transfer window.
El Shaarawy has done well with the French principality side, making over ten appearances that is stated to have triggered a permanent transfer at the end of the season; due to a clause inserted into his loan spell.
Our Reds fans were gutted as they were excited by links to the 22-year-old Italian international, with reports earlier this year suggesting a summer swoop for the winger would be made.
However any chances of Liverpool hijacking Monaco’s deal seem off the table with the latest news from the continent but the Reds stance on the player may have changed since Brendan Rodgers left the club earlier this month.
Liverpool fans, would Stephan El Shaarawy have been a good signing for you? Let us know in the comments below!
