TRANSFER TALK: Andrea Ranocchia to Liverpool?
News about a potential deal for defender Andrea Ranocchia has come to light recently, as Italian sports media TuttoMercatoWeb spoke of a transfer for the Internazionale centre back. Born in Italy, this player has been a part of Italian football ever since he was a young star, with clubs like Perguia and Arezze seeing great potential in him. Once he was a senior player, Arezzo, Genoa and Bari fans all got to see him play for their club before he became an Inter Milan player in 2011. In the 2010-2011 season when he had only just joined his new club, Ranocchia would win the Coppa Italia, proving himself to be a valuable asset rather early on for the fans that were just getting to know him.
Liverpool or Jürgen Klopp at least have been known to have interest in this player since the start of this season. This is Klopp’s first transfer window so anyone he’s thought of bringing to his new club only now will be able for signing.
Ranocchia is said to be perfectly happy with the possibility of becoming a Premier League player and Liverpool are reported to have made contact with Internazionale over the details to obtain their transfer target. This is not the first time Liverpool have had business in the transfer market with these Italian giants, having already bought Paul Ince from them in the late 1990s and more recently, Philippe Coutinho.
The two clubs are no stranger to each other and while I cannot speak of how many millions of pounds Liverpool would have to part with to get what they want as no official offer has been made that we aware of, they still may find an amicable arrangement yet to make this transfer happen in the near future.
