Liverpool are going to be busy bees this summer. Jürgen Klopp will be turning to Michael Edwards’ recruitment team as he looks to reshape the squad into a more reliable group with greater strength on the bench. A new centre back could be on the agenda. Liverpool could land Alessandro Bastoni using Divock Origi as bait if reports about the pair are correct.
Liverpool want Alessandro Bastoni
Although the Reds brought Ozan Kabak and Ben Davies in during the winter window there’s many who believe there could be another arrival in the summer.
Gazzetta Dello Sport has claimed that Liverpool want Alessandro Bastoni from Inter Milan.
The outlet believes the Reds could splash up to £43m on the 21-year-old Italian.
Inter Milan want Divock Origi
There will surely be a number of bench players moved on at the end of the season.
Our 25-year-old backup striker is one expected to be moved on.
According to Calcio Mercato, Inter Milan want Divock Origi.
The Serie A leaders reportedly want the Belgian forward to bolster their attacking line.
Perhaps Romelu Lukaku has given his countryman a ringing endorsement?
Bastoni and Origi deal
Michael Edwards will look to pay as little as possible for any potential signing.
One way we could reduce the cost of a new arrival is by including a squad member in the deal.
Liverpool should try and land Alessandro Bastoni using Divock Origi as part of the transfer.
The Belgian could make a big dent in the £43m asking price and we’d be bolstering a weak part of the squad in the process.
