Italian media outlet Gazzetta Di Parma is reporting that Liverpool boss Jürgen Klopp wants to bring AC Milan full-back Mattia De Sciglio to Anfield this summer.

The report claims that, despite Klopp's flurry of transfer business throughout the course of the off-season, he is still in the market for a full-back and would love to bring the Italian to the club.

Gazzetta Di Parma goes on to report that a fee of around £15-17 million would be required to tempt Milan into selling.

De Sciglio made 29 appearances for the Rossoneri last term and played four games for Italy during their Euro 2016 campaign.

The 23-year-old is a wonderfully versatile player and can play on either the right or left side of defence. This would be a fantastic asset for Klopp as his Liverpool side prepare for the physically punishing challenge that is the Premier League.

Reports in the Italian media claim that Milan want to sell certain players in order to re-invest in their playing squad, and De Sciglio is one of those deemed surplus to requirements at the San Siro.
