Klopp's Next Transfer? Liverpool still keen to sign 'top-class' €60m attacker who idolises 'Aguero'

Liverpool are once again being linked with a move for a new striker during the January transfer window.

Last month, Calciomercato claimed that Liverpool were planning a January offer for 'top-class' Torino striker Andrea Belotti, and according to Tutto Sport today:

"Arsenal and Liverpool are both monitoring Andrea Belotti, whose future may lie in the Premier League".

Some info about Belotti, who is nicknamed 'The Rooster':

* 22-year old centre-forward. Contract expires: 2020.

* Torino: 32 goal/assists in 47 games (One every 111 mins). 3 goals in 4 games for Italy.

* Oct 2016: Tutto Mercato claimed: "Torino's chairman, Urbano Cairo, has decided to extend Belotti's contract until 2021, and will insert a €60m buy-out clause".

* Nov 2013: Italy U21 Coach Gigi Di Biagio enthused: "Andrea has been the best Italian striker of the last two years. He has always been hard-working, is intelligent and scores goals regularly".

* On his idols: "My idol was always Shevchenko but lately I'm trying to study lots of strikers, Aguero above all because he is a brilliant player".

Is Belotti a better option than, say, Alexander Lacazette?
