The Italy international has been in and out of the Old Lady’s side this season, making 30 appearances in all competitions as they have won the Serie A title and Coppa Italia. However, he may get a coveted start in the showpiece event thanks to an injury to Giorgio Chiellini. Andrea Barzagli is also a doubt, meaning the 26-year-old could fill in at the back against Barcelona’s feared attack.

West Ham are also interested in the centre-back, who has ten caps for his country. It is unknown if the departure of Sam Allardyce from Upton Park will have any effect on this, with things up in the air before a new coach comes in to the club.

However, if the Reds come in for him they will surely be a more enticing prospect than the East London outfit. Current Anfield star Martin Skrtel has hit out at a recent contract offer from the club, meaning that manager Brendan Rodgers could be in the market for a replacement sooner rather than later.
