According to Le10sport, reported Liverpool target Sandro Tonali is on the verge of joining Inter Milan after rejecting a move to Serie A rivals Juventus.

The midfielder likened to Andrea Pirlo is a highly sought-after figure.

According to Alfredo Pedulla, Liverpool have scouted Tonali on numerous occasions this season with manager Jurgen Klopp a big fan of the player.

The latest reports, however, suggest the Reds are about to miss out on his signature.

Le10sport claim Tonali wants to remain in Italy. And, after rejecting a move to Juventus, he has set his sights on Inter with an agreement cited as almost complete.

Tonali has been impressive this season. Prior to the covid-19 suspension, the 19-year-old posted five assists in 23 Serie A games.

A report from TuttoSport says Brescia President Massimo Cellino will demand a fee between £45 million and £54.5 million for the Italian.

Liverpool may have run away with the Premier League title before the suspension. But, exits from the Champions League and FA Cup show a room for improvement.

One area where the Reds must look to strengthen is in midfield. Absences to Jordan Henderson and Fabinho contributed to their rocky form in Feb/March.

Tonali would have been an ideal long-term option. But, with Inter improving under the guidance of Antonio Conte, they appear to have won the race.
