Italian midfielder set to be Jurgen Klopp’s main priority
Liverpool are lining up a bid for Juventus midfielder Claudio Marchisio having failed to lure him to England in the past.
Jurgen Klopp is believed to have identified the 29-year-old as a perfect fit for Liverpool‘s midfield and can help repair the void Steven Gerrard has left.
The Reds will be willing to offer £23.5million for the player and according to Juventus chief Giuseppe Marotta, Liverpool have already tried to sign him.
In recent reports, Marotta said: “We get so many offers for our players, but we are used to buying not selling.” he is as quoted as saying by Calciomercato.
“Not only Liverpool, we have received several offers.”
“We have renewed with him, we focus strongly on Claudio and I believe that his first thought is of finish my career here.”
Despite Marotta’s comments, Klopp has given Liverpool a more attractive look once again and would be a considerable factor should the player sign.
