Euro Paper Talk: Boost for Liverpool as £28m star is made available

Roma are reportedly willing to listen to offers for a top Liverpool midfield target, while Juventus are ready to pounce for a Tottenham favourite, according to Friday’s European papers.



Roma are reportedly ready to listen to offers of around €32million (£28m) for Liverpool midfield target Lorenzo Pellegrini.

Reds boss Jurgen Klopp is looking to revamp his central midfield area this summer, with Emre Can looking likely to leave while Naby Keita is poised to arrive from RB Leipzig.

Liverpool have also been linked with Napoli star Jorginho, but it would appear that Pellegrini could be available for a cut-price fee.

The 21-year-old is under contract in Rome until 2021 but can be sold if any club matches his release clause of €32m this summer.

And Corriere dello Sport claims that Liverpool are still keen to secure his services and are readying a bid for the player.

The arrival of Keita and the potential signing of either Jorginho or Pellegrini cats further doubts over Jordan Henderson’s future at Anfield, while versatile veteran James Milner could also be moved on at the end of the season.
