Liverpool are ready to meet super agent Mino Raiola to discuss a potential summer move for wantaway AC Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma.
That is according to Italian outlet Calciomercato, who say the Reds are willing to hold tentative talks over the 19-year-old shot-stopper.
Raiola is reportedly desperate to facilitate a move for Donnarumma following Milan’s failure to qualify for the Champions League.
Donnarumma has a clause in his contract that allows him to negotiate a move away from the San Siro in the event of missing out on a place at Europe’s top table.
Milan have lowered their asking price from £61.3m to £35m, according to il COrriere dello Sport.
Muller: Salah deserves Ballon d’Or
Thomas Muller believes Mohamed Salah should beat Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi to win the Ballon d’Or.
The Liverpool star has enjoyed an incredible season, scoring 44 goals in all competitions, to lead the Reds to Saturday’s Champions League final vs Real Madrid.
Ronaldo, the current holder of European football’s most prestigious individual prize, led Los Blancos past Muller’s Bayern Munich in the semi-finals, but the German believes it could be the Egyptian’s time.
“I think that Mo Salah was very impressive,” Muller told Mirror Football on behalf of Gillette. “Maybe if Liverpool can win the Champions League title, he’s a big candidate.
“The whole world is looking for a new Ballon D’Or winner. Leo Messi and Ronaldo are outstanding, but the performance of Salah this season was also outstanding. I think he has a great chance.”
Liverpool set to clinch Fekir deal
Liverpool hope to seal a £60million move for Nabil Fekir after their Champions League final against Real Madrid this weekend.
The attacking midfielder has been linked with a big-money move to Merseyside for a number of weeks, and appeared to be saying a tearful goodbye to home fans in his last game of the season for Lyon.
But although contact has been made, no deal has been agreed with the French club’s president Jean Michel Aulas — who has insisted: “You will have to be very, very rich to sign Nabil Fekir this year.”
Talks are due to progress next week, though, as the Reds step up their efforts to land Fekir.
The 24-year-old’s form has been so good this season as Lyon finished third in Ligue 1 and got to the Europa League last 16 he may even force himself past a host of stars to claim a place in France’s World Cup starting XI.
