Jurgen Klopp wants to sign ‘unhappy’ Liverpool target after failed £86m transfer



Jurgen Klopp wants to sign ‘unhappy’ Liverpool target after failed £86m transfer

Liverpool have once again been credited with an interest in Juventus forward Federico Chiesa

Liverpool are one of a number of clubs keeping tabs on Juventus winger Federico Chiesa, who could finally be on the move in the upcoming transfer window.

The 24 year-old has attracted plenty of interest since starring for Italy at the delayed European Championships back in 2021 but a move away has failed to materialise.

After failing with an ambitious £86million bid for Chiesa’s services shortly after Euro 2020, Liverpool moved on to other targets.

However, it now appears as though the Reds and Jurgen Klopp are once again monitoring developments involving the forward amid speculation that Chiesa is unhappy in Turin.

According to Italian outlet Corriere dello Sport, via Football Italia, Chiesa is open to moving on from the Allianz Arena as he does not feel as though he is a ‘central figure’ at the club. Unsurprisingly, that has alerted a host of European clubs who could firm up their interest in the coming weeks.

Liverpool are one of the clubs who are believed to still hold an interest in Chiesa, however, the report goes on to outline that Newcastle and Bayern Munich are actively interested, with the latter already sounding out the player’s representatives.

Juventus’ demand for Chiesa are likely to be significantly less than they were back in 2021, with a figure of around €35m (£30m) – €45m (£38.5m) now being touted by Italian media.

Klopp made it clear following last month’s Premier League finale that he expected the club to be active in the transfer market this summer after a disappointing 2022/23 campaign.

The Reds have already made a fine start to their summer business with the capture of World Cup-winning midfielder Alexis Mac Allister, who joins the club from Brighton for an initial £45million.
