Liverpool are now favourites to employ Juventus’ Fabio Paratici as their new sporting director.
talkSPORT told you on Wednesday that Tottenham have had several approaches for Paratici rejected by Juve as they search for Franco Baldini’s replacement.
And now, according to Sky Sports Italia, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has identified Paratici as the ideal candidate to work alongside him at Anfield.
However, Juve are reluctant to let the 43-year-old leave Turin, having enjoyed domestic and European success since he joined them from Sampdoria in 2010.
But the lure of a new era under Klopp at Liverpool may turn Paratici’s head, who is understood to be keen on working in the Premier League.
