The Reds boss is hoping to add more creativity to his midfield and has apparently identified the Italian international as the ideal man to do so this winter.
The diminutive star has been in and out of the Juve side since first breaking through, and though he has always been regarded as a talented player he has not always been given the opportunities to impress that he would have liked.
Skilful and small, his profile would seem to fit in with the ethos that has been set for the side by Rodgers, with Paris Saint Germain’s Javier Pastore and Derby County starlet Will Hughes also being targets.
Giovinco was a regular in last season’s Scudetto winning Juve side, but has slipped back down the pecking order this time around and may prefer to seal a move in January to give himself a fighting chance at being named in Italy’s squad to travel to the World Cup next summer.
