Date published: Sunday 21st January 2018 5:23

Liverpool have learned the price they must pay for a Serie A duo, while Chelsea have won the race for a Roma defender, according to Sunday’s European papers.



According to Tancredi Palmieri, AS Roma and Chelsea have reached an agreement for defender and reported Liverpool target Emerson Palmieri.

The deal for Palmieri is done, the report claims, but the only detail waiting to be finalised is if striker Edin Dzeko will be included as a double deal.

Roma reportedly want an extra €40-45million for the Bosnian international, but the Blues are only willing to spend €30m.

Both players are set to feature on Sunday night as Eusebio di Francesco’s side face the trip to Inter Milan.



Liverpool have been told that they must pay €80million if they want to sign a Cagliari duo, according to a report.

Italian under-19 star Nicolo Barella and North Korean striker Han Kwang-Song are both being tracked by the Reds as well as Spurs, Calciomercato claims.

Juventus are also interested, but they remain separated on a potential Han transfer fee by a wide margin. The Serie A champions are only willing to pay half of the €10million transfer fee Cagliari are requesting.

Cagliari want €80million for the pair, as according to Il Corriere dello Sport Cagliari values Barella at €50million and Han at a staggering €30million.
