Liverpool have entered a three-way race with Inter and Juventus to sign Sassuolo winger Domenico Berardi, according to reports in Italy.

The 22-year-old has spent large parts of this season out with injury, but the Gazzetta di Modena says he has caught the eye of Jurgen Klopp as he looks to strengthen in the wide areas.

An obstacle to any move is that Italian champions Juventus are said to have a €25m (£22m) option on the player who is unlikely to be going anywhere until the summer.

Klopp is also said to be lining up a move for Southampton captain Jose Fonte, who has handed in a transfer request.

The 33-year-old would come in to a defence that has conceded more goals than all of Liverpool's top six rivals bar Manchester City and would cost around £10m, according to the Daily Mirror.

Anwar El Ghazi - who had been linked with a move to Anfield in the summer - is on his way to Lille, according to Voetbal International.

The Ajax winger has made four assists in the Eredivisie this season but has struggled to cement his place in the first-team after falling out with manager Peter Bosz.

Liverpool are among four European clubs now in the race for Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder Mahmoud Dahoud.

Borussia Dortmund are thought to be his most likely destination, but Milan and Juventus are also keeping tabs, according to Gazzetta dello Sport.
