Andrea Ranocchia close to Liverpool move

Reds to seal Ranocchia deal?

Inter Milan defender Andrea Ranocchia is said to be in talks over a proposed move to Liverpool.

The Italy international is deemed surplus to requirements at the Nerazzurri, and has been tipped to seek a fresh challenge in the New Year.

According to Sky Italia, the 27-year-old has rebuffed a temporary move to Sampdoria as he has set his sights on a Premier League adventure with Liverpool.

It is added that the Reds are negotiating terms with the player, and a deal could well be announced in the coming week.

Jurgen Klopp's side are in a major defensive crisis as they are left with no senior centre-backs.
