Next Torres to Anfield? 'Excellent' goal-machine wanted by Liverpool confirms transfer decision 'will' be made this summer

One of Liverpool's recent transfer targets has hinted that a summer transfer may be on the cards.

On transfer deadline day, The Mirror claimed:

"Liverpool have missed out on Inter wonderkid Andrea Pinamonti...who moves similarly to Fernando Torres during his time at Anfield".

When asked on Sunday about the possibility of a summer transfer, Piamonti told FC Inter:

"I'm working hard to improve and...at the end of the season, I will decide what to do with my family, club and my agent."

Some info about Pinamonti:

* 18-year old centre-forward. Contract expires: June 2017.

* Inter B: 18 goals/assists in 18 games (Primavera).

* International: 17 goals in 32 apps for various Italy youth teams.

* Dec 2017: Inter boss Stefano Pioli enthused: "He [Piamonti] has great quality. I think he can be an excellent footballer for the future.”

* Dec 2016: Piamonti admitted: "Who inspires me? My role model is Mauro Icardi"

* Dec 2016: Reportedly in negotiations with Inter to sign a new deal with a 'huge release clause'.

* Jan 2017: Spurs reps reportedly met with Piamonti's agent to discuss a possible transfer.

Meh. Another in the never-ending conveyor belt of allegedly amazing young talents who may or may not come good at some undetermined point in the future. If Klopp had sealed this deal on deadline day, I doubt there would've been much enthusiasm amongst the Liverpool fanbase.
