Liverpool are reportedly interested in signing Udinese midfielder Rodrigo De Paul in the summer transfer window.
The report claims that the Udinese skipper would cost in the region of €50 million (£42m), and both the clubs are a clear front runner for his signature.
De Paul, who was heavily linked with a move to Leeds United during the summer transfer window, has established himself as one of the best players in A league.
The Udinese skipper has been brilliant in 2020/21, having managed six goals and seven assists in 29 games across all competitions.
He has a contract at the club until 2024, and Udinese are expected to demand a high transfer fee for him.
At 26, the Argentine midfielder is entering the peak of his career, and he would be a stellar signing for both Barcelona and Liverpool.
Liverpool are almost certain to lose Gini Wijnaldum in the summer on a free transfer. The Dutch midfielder is yet to agree a new deal with the Reds and is most likely to join Barcelona.
In other news, Liverpool are eyeing a move for Donyell Malen.
