Atalanta goalkeeper, Marco Sportiello, has this week laughed of speculation linking him to Anfield.
The 22-year-old’s performances for the Italian side has seen AC Milan and Liverpool apparently vying for his signature, but the Atalanta man gave a modest response to the reports in a recent press conference.
“Will I go to Liverpool? Come on! It already feels like a huge achievement that I am first choice for Atalanta.”
Sportiello clearly does not expect to be on the move this summer, but if rumours are to be believed, the young Italian could be in Milan or Merseyside come the summer.
