Liverpool and AC Milan are set to battle it out for the signing of Borussia Dortmund striker Ciro Immobile.
Immobile has endured a nightmare season in the Bundesliga so far, as indeed have Dortmund, who sit bottom of the Bundesliga.
Added to the unsettling of Immobile is the fact that the German paper Bild labelled him as “slow, technically limited and unable to beat his man”.
Immobile only joined the German club seven months ago from Torino, but may be on his way again in the summer.
Liverpool have expressed their interest, as have AC Milan, who want to bring him to the San Siro.
But the Reds may edge ahead in the hunt, due to Milan wishing to make Matteo Destro’s loan move permanent.
Immobile has scored only seven goals all season, three in the Bundesliga.
Dortmund face a mass clearout in the summer, with no Champions League football, and face a battle to keep hold of their star names.
