Liverpool have reportedly made an offer for Mattia de Sciglio, the Milan full-back, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport.

Alberto Moreno is the club’s only natural left-back, with Jon Flanagan linked to Burnley, Jürgen Klopp needs to strengthen his reserves in the position.

A bid of £16m has been tabled, according to the Italian sports daily and Donato Orgnoni, De Sciglio’s agent, recently admitted there is interest in his client.

“There are certainly many clubs interested. We’re looking around,” he said. “He’s very much appreciated both in Italy and abroad, we’ve also had contact with Napoli.”

Liverpool are also keeping tabs on Ludovic Blas, the 18-year-old Guingamp prodigy, according to L’Equipe.

Internazionale are also sniffing around the youngster, but Blas would prefer to stay in Ligue 1 and switch to Lyon.

Could Lucas Leiva be the next out the door at Anfield?

Liverpool’s longest-serving player has survived several scares during his ten years on Merseyside and came particularly close to leaving two years ago.

Lucas is not looking to move, according to the Daily Mail, but his head could be turned by the promise of regular minutes.
