According to CalcioMercato, Liverpool is one of several clubs interested in Atalanta midfielder Giorgio Scalvini..
The Reds are thought to be monitoring the 18-year-old alongside Manchester City, Inter Milan, and Bayern Munich, with any approaches likely to come next summer. Atalanta want to keep their young star for the rest of the season and will only consider offers that exceed €30 million.
Scalvini, a ball-playing centre-back who can also play defensive midfield, joined Atalanta’s youth system in 2015 and advanced to the first team at the age of 17 in 2021..
He quickly established himself as a regular for Gian Piero Gasperini’s side, appearing 11 times this season as they battle for a Champions League spot.
With his team failing to qualify for the World Cup, the teenager was called up to Italy’s national squad in January 2022 as part of manager Roberto Mancini’s wider move to introduce youth early. He earned his first cap off the bench in June and has since made three appearances for his country.
Liverpool will face stiff competition from other clubs on the continent to bring Scalvini to Anfield next summer, with Inter Milan thought to be in the lead..
According to the reports, officials from Atalanta and Inter are considering a loan with a buy option for the defender, and the Nerazzuri could leverage any future deal for the defender by sending Giovanni Fabbian, who is currently on loan at Reggina in Serie B, the other way..
