Klopp to Sign? Liverpool Reps fly out to watch 'brilliant' €15m star; agent confirms transfer interest from 'Prem' clubs

Atalanta midfielder Franck Kessie has been regularly linked with Liverpool this season, but new reports now suggest tht the Reds have switched focus to one of Kessie's team-mates.

According to Italian newspaper Tutto Mercato:

* Liverpool sent scouts to watch Atalanta star Andrea Conti during Friday’s 2-2 draw with Juventus.

* Juventus, Napoli, Roma, Milan and Chelsea are also tracking the 23-year old.

Some info about €15m-rated Conti:

* Right midfielder, who can also play right-back. Also comfortable as a right wing-back.

* Contract expires: 2021.

* Atalanta: 9 goals/5 assists in 47 apps (One every 239 mins).

* Apr 2017: Conti's agent told Radio CRC: "Premier League clubs are interested in him [Conti] and that’s good for Atalanta because the player’s price-tag can only increase. If I were a president I’d try to sign him now.”

* Apr 2017: After scoring a vital goal against Juventus, Atalanta boss Gian Peiro Gasperini Hailed Conti for his 'brilliant' performance.

* Apr 2017: Conti's agent revealed: "As a child, he [Conti] was a Juventus fan, and his idol was Gianluigi Buffon".

Conti's versatility is probably enticing to Klopp, but if he's a Juventus fan, and Juve are interested, then he'll probably end up at Juve.
