Liverpool battle Bayern Munich for international star: Club want £17m

LIVERPOOL have reportedly entered the race to sign Napoli star Elseid Hysaj.

The Albania international has enjoyed a fine Serie A season, making 30 appearances.

And his form at the Stadio Dan Paolo has caught the eye of four European giants.

Transfer Market Web claim Bayern Munich, Atletico Madrid and Inter Milan are keen on Hysaj.

And they have now apparently been joined in their respective pursuits by Liverpool.

Napoli are unlikely to let Hysaj leave without a fight this summer though.

The Italian giants are facing the prospect of losing fellow full-back Faouzi Ghoulam.

And they are said to have put a minimum price tag of £17m on Hysaj ahead of the next transfer window.

The former Empoli man is under contract at Napoli for another four years.

And a bidding war could ensue if each of the interested clubs make concrete moves for Hysaj.
