Liverpool are desperate to sign €55m-rated Italian defender

Liverpool keen on signing Inter Milan centre-back Alessandro Bastoni during the summer transfer window. The Merseyside giants are struggling this campaign and are unable to stop leaking goals. Their latest terrible defeat to Real Madrid in the UCL was one of very few times we’ve seen the Reds concede five goals at home.

Despite on paper the Reds looking like they currently have many centre-backs, the German manager and his team could look for reinforcements due to the terrible displays we’re currently seeing. Even the reliable van Dijk has struggled at times this campaign.

The Merseyside giants are considering a move for Italy international ahead of the summer window. However, the lack of UCL football could be a killer for them, not just in their pursuit of Alessandro, but in many targets.

If the Reds don’t start showing drastic improvements on the pitch then attracting the calibre of footballers they’re used to signing isn’t going to be easy. Footballers will remember the stature and history of Liverpool but ultimately will want to be playing European football.
