Liverpool are one of the clubs named as a suitor for Udinese star Rodrigo De Paul.

On May 20th, Il Gazzettino explained Jürgen Klopp has his eyes on the 27-year-old. A day later, De Paul said he’s aware clubs are interested in his services.

The Argentina international was emotional following the last tie of the season, and it could be an indication there would be farewell this summer.

That’s according to Milan Live, who add the clash against Inter Milan on Sunday may have been his final game for Udinese.

The report then states ‘everyone wants De Paul’. AC Milan have been following him for some time and Stefano Pioli’s side could consider making an approach, in the event Hakan Çalhanoğlu decides to leave the San Siro.

Udinese are asking close to €40m for the South American, but Milan could struggle to meet these demands. They could try to lower the asking price by involving some of their own players as part of the deal.

Apart from Milan, Inter, Juventus and Napoli are also chasing De Paul. The ‘foreign hypothesis’ cannot be ruled out and that’s when Liverpool get a mention.

It’s claimed Atlético Madrid are interested in him, and other suitors must ‘pay attention’ to the Merseyside club.

Udinese sporting director Pierpaolo Marino has admitted his side would consider De Paul’s sale if there’s a tempting proposal.

“De Paul is a very famous player who is on everyone’s lips right now. Our club has the will and the strength to be able to keep him but if an undeniable offer were to be presented to him, then we absolutely could not hold him back by force,” Milan Live quoted Marino as saying.
