Tottenham Hotspur were linked earlier this week by Italian website Calciomercato with making an attempt to bring in Fabio Paratici from Juventus as sporting director.
Paratici is the man responsible for signing Paul Pogba on a free transfer, and a reel of other impressive signings allowing the Bianconeri to remain at the top of Serie A.
It appears they are not the only Premier League club interested in his services should he be available.
It is unclear whether Paratici has a desire to join either club, but Liverpool's reported interest is fascinating because their current structure does not lend itself to the appointment of a sporting director.
Tottenham's situation is also muddled, having recently released Franco Baldini from his contract as sporting director. The Times reported Spurs have a five-man committee formed in his absence, and this could become a permanent option, although reports suggesting they have approached Paratici suggest otherwise.
