Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp still has a problem at left-back. Alberto Moreno is better than last season, but that’s not saying much. He signed Andrew Robertson, but clearly isn’t convinced. James Milner is a midfielder again.
So perhaps it’s no surprise that Liverpool are being linked with a move for yet another left-back in January. Italian media say that Roma’s Emerson Palmieri is one of their top targets.
The story comes from Gazzamercato, which sounds like a shop dedicated solely to Paul Gascoigne merchandise. To be clear, would spend all my pocket money there.
They say Klopp wanted to sign Palmieri in the summer, but he did his ACL in May which ruled him out for six months.
If Palmieri returns in November and proves his fitness, Klopp will return with a £22m bid in January. He joined Roma for less than £2m in 2015.
