The Italian newspaper make it very clear that Juventus are in the lead to sign the young midfielder, but could face competition from wealthy Premier League clubs, like Liverpool, when the time to sign him comes.
Rumors of the club’s interest in Tonali circled last year and that has only increased with him achieving promotion with Brescia and impressing in his first season in Serie A.
Often dubbed ‘The New Pirlo’, the 19-year-old has graduated to the national side, winning three caps this season for Italy.
Sandro Tonali is one of a growing number of young targets that Liverpool are looking at as they are in the enviable position of having no immediate transfer needs for the first team; instead they can look to the future.
The Reds are monitoring three Norwich City players and could pounce if the bottom of the table club is relegated from the Premier League this summer: left back Jamal Lewis; creative midfielder Emiliano Buendia and forward Todd Cantwell.
Most observers believe left back is the most likely position to see an addition in the next six months which is supported by the club’s interest in Sam McCallum of MK Dons.
There are just over two weeks left in the January transfer window and while most are expecting Takumi Minamino to be the only addition this month, you can’t rule out a move if an opportunity arises.
