Liverpool are reportedly planning to make a move for Sampdoria centre-back Omar Colley.
The Mersyeside Reds are yet to bring a new defender to the team during the current transfer window despite the fact that Dejan Lovren has moved on.
Jurgen Klopp’s side had been rumoured with a move for Brighton & Hove Albion’s Ben White, however, the Englishman ultimately penned on a new long-term deal at the Amex.
According to SampNews24, the Premier League heavyweights are planning to make an approach for Colley, who has a £10.8m release clause in his current deal.
The 27-year-old, who sees his current contract with Sampdoria end in June 2022, made 31 Serie A games during the 2019-20 season.
The Merseyside Reds will be looking to make it successive wins at the start of the new Premier League campaign when they travel to Chelsea on Sunday afternoon.
Meanwhile, West Brom hold an interest in Liverpool transfer target Kristoffer Ajer, but the possibility of a straight cash deal is improbable, according to The Athletic.
The 22-year-old centre-half has been a key part of Celtic’s success over the last couple of campaigns and his performances have turned heads in Europe.
AC Milan are stated to be interested in taking him to Italy and the Norwegian has also been mentioned with a move to England, with Liverpool believed to be tracking the player.
