Liverpool are reportedly interested in a move for Brescia midfielder Sandro Tonali, according to reports from Corriere dello Sport.
The report, as translated by Sport Witness, reveals that the player is a target for the Reds, but does make clear that Juventus are the clear favourites for the midfielder.
Several Liverpool fans have taken to Twitter to reveal their thoughts over a potential deal for Tonali, with many excited at the prospect of signing him.

Read Liverpool’s verdict
Tonali would be a great signing for Liverpool, but there could be several factors that hamper a deal.
Firstly, Sport Witness reports that the Italian side will demand over €50 million for the midfielder, which could put Liverpool off spending so much money on a player who isn’t guaranteed to start.
Also, with Juventus in the race, Tonali may just prefer a switch in Italy.
The midfielder possesses great passing ability, with a 74.8% successful pass percentage, with Tonali also possessing great ability from set pieces.
