The Empoli midfielder has been a star for the Serie A club, scoring four goals and adding nine assists this season – and he’s still very young.
Saponara is certainly a good option but Liverpool can do so much better than a player who could barely cut it on the AC Milan starting roster. And with both the Europa League and FA Cup still ripe for the taking, a big midfield transfer in January would likely be a better option for Liverpool.
