Inter Milan striker Andrea Pinamonti has reportedly developed as a transfer target for Wolverhampton Wanderers.
On Wednesday, Wolves finalized a deal for Valencia striker Rafa Mir, however, the West Midlands outfit have big ideas to make an impact in the Premier League next campaign, and it seems that they are proceeding to target some of European football’s hottest talents.
As reported by the Gazzetta Dello Sport, Wolves are considering whether to submit an approach for Pinamonti, who has already played four games in the first team at San Siro.
The 18-year-old has earlier been linked with Liverpool. However, the Championship club could look to move ahead of the Merseyside giants to sign the youngster.
Cagliari Calcio and Sassuolo are also believed to be keen on the Italy Under-19 international. However, Inter stay in a fixed position with the frontman having a three-and-a-half season remaining on his deal.
Meanwhile, Roma keeper Alisson has developed as a target for Liverpool this January, according to stories in Italy.
Alisson, 25, has played 40 games for Roma since joining the club back in 2016 and has proved himself as first-choice shot-stopper at Stadio Olimpico after Wojciech Szczesny’s exit.
The Brazilian’s displays in Serie A have put Paris Saint-Germain on red alert, but it’s believed Jurgen Klopp is also showing significant interest.
La Gazzetta Dello Sport claims Liverpool could ‘sacrifice’ Simon Mignolet to get a deal over the line for Alisson.
Both Mignolet and Loris Karius continue to fight between the sticks at Anfield, and some ‘keepers have been linked with moves to Liverpool.
PSG outcast Kevin Trapp hinted back in November that he would be keen on working under Klopp at Anfield.
“It’s a fantastic club with a great tradition, And of course, I’m a fan of the Premier League. The Reds are not without interest, they have already won many titles, and Jurgen Klopp is, of course, an excellent coach.
