Liverpool considering surprise bid for 29-year-old Serie A No.10

Atalanta BC playmaker Alejandro Gomez is reportedly the latest player to have been added to Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp’s transfer wishlist.

The Argentina international has a combined 15 goals and assists in all competitions for La Dea this term, 10 of which have come in Serie A.

Liverpool have targeted Gomez as a possible replacement for Philippe Coutinho, who finally got his big-money move to Barcelona this week, but the Reds face a huge task landing the 29-year-old.

Atalanta president Antonio Percassi has already ruled out a sale, and Tuttosport suggests that the Italian outfit are confident of keeping hold of the attacking talent unless a big bid is made.

Gomez is not the only player to have been linked with a move to Liverpool this month, as Monaco’s Thomas Lemar and Leon Goretzka of Schalke 04 are also understood to be on their radar.
