Liverpool’s midfield options could be boosted with the arrival of Roma starlet Nicolo Zaniolo, according to reports – although they face a battle to secure his signature.

Zaniolo, 22, joined Roma from Inter Milan in 2018 in a swap deal for Radja Nainggolan,

He has since flourished in the Italian capital, scoring 12 goals in 73 Serie A games prior to a season-ending knee injury last season.

But with just two-and-a-half-years left on his deal, the midfielder has caught the interests of big European clubs, according to Calciomercato.

The report states that Roma are caught in a dilemma over the future of their star.

With just over two years left on his contract, the side from the capital are reportedly asking Zaniola to renew his contract before it starts to run down.

Other reports claim that the Giallorossi were prepared to offer him a deal worth around £3.4million per year, which would last until 2027.

But with the midfielder currently undecided, Calciomercato claim that Juventus, Atletico Madrid and Liverpool are all interested in his services.

A deal could happen in the summer for the youngster, who has 18 goals in 97 games for Jose Mourinho’s men.

And if he fails to sign a contract at the Stadio Olimpico, the club will have to sell up in the summer to avoid him going for a cheap fee in the summer of 2023.

According to the Athletic, Liverpool’s biggest priority this summer is a new deal for Mohamed Salah.

The Egyptian has just 16 months left on his contract at Anfield.

And once that is sorted, the club will turn their attentions to incomings.
