The 21-year-old has been in fine form this season and has often been the club’s one bright spark in what has been a disappointing campaign for the Milanese giants.

He has frequently been lauded as one of the hottest prospects to come out of Italy in several year and has subsequently been linked with a move to a number of top sides all across Europe this summer.

Arsenal had been keeping tabs on him, as had Spanish pair Real Madrid and Barcelona, but it is now Liverpool that are looking to beat the competition to his signature.

De Sciglio can operate at either right-back or left-back, and could be a useful addition to Brendan Rodgers’ squad as doubts linger over the future of Glen Johnson and Aly Cissokho.

Cissohko is on a season long loan from Valencia and has already been told that he will not be kept on beyond the summer as he has failed to impress at Anfield and will seek a new challenge elsewhere when his agreement comes to an end.

Youngster Jon Flanagan has been impressing for the Reds this season, but despite his good form the club are still thought to be on the lookout for fresh talent all over the pitch.
