Despite being billed as tactically ‘perfect’ for Jurgen Klopp’s side, any move for Chiesa looks to be near impossible to complete during this transfer window.
Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano rubbished talks of a rejected bid on Twitter and claimed that the 23-year-old was in fact off-limits.

READ LIVERPOOL VERDICT
Valued at £63million (Transfermarkt) and embroiled in a complicated position between the two Serie A clubs, signing the Italian forward always looked like a tough proposition.
Not only did the finances all but rule out any move for the 31-cap star, but a permanent move to Juventus looks to be nailed on.
That said, there’s no doubt Chiesa would be a superb signing at Anfield given the quality and unrivalled versatility offered.
Following the ever-reliable Romano’s update, Klopp may be forced to turn to the likes of Adama Traore, Ismaila Sarr, Raphinha or Jarrod Bowen to fill the attacking void.
