Liverpool have been tipped to secure services of AC Milan centre-back Alessio Romagnoli this summer, in a sensational swap deal involving Naby Keita.
Guinea international midfielder has struggled to settle at Anfield after his transfer from RB Leipzig and has been recently linked with a departure from Jurgen Klopp’s side.
Tuttosport claims that Jurgen Klopp is interested in the Italian defender and would be willing to offer the Reds No.8 in a straight swap deal.
While there is no doubting the AC Milan captain’s ability, the idea that the head-coach would be willing to let Keita depart for another quality defender.
Romagnoli would come into the Merseyside Reds squad and challenge Joel Matip and Joe Gomez for a place in the squad, inheriting the position Dejan Lovren currently occupies.
Liverpool may find it hard to bring in new senior players in the summer, with the coronavirus pandemic causing financial problems, however, offering one of the first-team players in a swap deal could help them to add new faces ahead of the next season.
On top of that, SempreMilan reports the Rossoneri would likely turn the offer – while Liverpool would suggest offering Keita for Romagnoli is too much – showing the valuation of both players is unlikely to be agreed upon by both clubs.

The report adds that the concerns over Sadio’s state of mind, regarding his long-term future at Anfield, means Liverpool are weighing up a France international swap.
Liverpool fans would clearly be unhappy at the prospect of Mane moving on, but that could be tempered massively be the potential arrival of the PSG sensation.
France international is seven years younger than Mane and has already had an illustrious start to his playing career.
Mbappe is a World Cup winner, as well as winning Ligue 1 titles with PSG and Monaco, and is widely regarded as the next big global superstar.
The reports suggest that the Merseyside giants are considering the prospect of trying to sign Mbappe for £200million, plus Mane.
For their part, PSG does not want to lose their prized assets, although that sort of offer may be way too good to turn down.
Meanwhile, Reds are reportedly at the ‘front of the queue’ of a host of Europe’s elite in the sweepstakes to sign Napoli defensive king Kalidou Koulibaly.

Chelsea have also been mentioned with a player who has a contract at the Signal Iduna Park outfit until the end of the 2021-22 season.
In the meantime, Liverpool chairman Tom Werner thinks the club’s hunger for success won’t diminish in the wake of their maiden PL title win and is hopeful of “another period of sustained success”.

“One of the things that stuck with me this year was their hunger for winning. I don’t think that will be diminished.”

"The whole idea that Liverpool are the champions and that means he’ll go to them, that’s not the case. Liverpool is an attractive proposition, as attractive as anybody else, whether they are more attractive than Barcelona or Manchester City I don’t think that’s necessarily true.
"What may happen is that his type of football may suit Liverpool. I don’t think he’s suited to the type of football that Manchester City play.
"Liverpool always looking to improve on players and you’re always going to be linked with players if you’re a big club and it’s a good time to buy when you’re at the top.
"I don’t think they’ll be many signings coming to Liverpool. If there’s a signing that they feel will improve them they’ll do that, but that’s no different to any other club.
"Liverpool won’t break the bank to sign anybody, the type of player Liverpool want isn’t going to be a Neymar or Messi who you may have to break the bank for, so they will able to get the players they want but they won’t have to break the bank for him."
