The Christmas lights haven;t officially gone up yet around here but the January sale bargains are being readied.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp publicly said he’s happy with his squad, but it seems that the German is looking for re-enforcements to join Anfield in the new year.

And this morning it’s being reported that one of his key targets is also being courted by several other European clubs ahead of the transfer window re-opening in just over seven weeks time.

According to Tuttesport in Italy, Liverpool are hoping to sign Empoli midfidler Riccardo Saponara for around €20million to aid in Klopp’s energetic pressing style that has seen players such as James Milner struggle at times this campaign

However it’s also being reported that Juventus are also in for the 23-year-old  as they look to replace the departed Arturo Vidal and Andrea Pirlo.
